The Japanese battery manufacturer says that it thinks about producing cells for Tesla in a new Gigafactory in Shanghai, China in a comparable deal that they have regarding the so-called Gigafactory 1 in Nevada. That is what “Nikkei” learnt on the sidelines of CES.
Thus, Panasonic’s president Kazuhiro Tsuga considers following Tesla’s lead, but a detailed schedule has not been given yet. Panasonic operates already a battery plant in the Chinese city of Dalian. However, the cell types rolling off the lines there are different from those used by Tesla. The facility in Dalian has been erected by Panasonic’s JV with Dalian Levear Electric. The venture has been founded in early 2016.
