Samsung SDI making progress in talks with Tesla to supply batteries

Samsung SDI making progress in talks with Tesla to supply batteries

Tesla's rumored battery negotiations with Samsung SDI appear to be moving forward.

Samsung SDI shares rose as much as 4.1 percent to 113,500 won in Seoul following the report. Either way, it is incredible to see how quickly a tweet from someone in Musk's position can alter a company's stocks so greatly. In a statement released to Electrek, the auto company shared that they had reviewed the vehicle logs from the time of the accident and "confirm that this Model X was operating correctly under manual control".

On Wednesday, Shares of Triangle Petroleum Corporation (NYSEMKT:TPLM), added 41.86% and closed at $0.305 in the last trading session. Tesla Energy is an arm of the company in the renewable energy sector that produces energy storage systems for household and industrial applications. Asked in a tweet whether Samsung batteries might be used in Tesla Energy, he responded, "yes". Tesla is thought to be seeking more battery suppliers because it requires roughly 250 million battery cells to cater to the demand for the Model 3.

Tesla is going to need a lot of batteries; it has orders for close to 400,000 of the Model 3 and recently dramatically upped its production targets. The company is investing up to $1.6 billion in the Tesla's Gigafactory 1, where it will be in charge of cell manufacturing.

Dong flotation price to value company at almost 100 billion kroner
The listing price meant Goldman Sachs doubled its eight billion kroner investment, which valued the group at 44 billion kroner.


Tesla Energy is the automaker's new business unit that was launched previous year to supply energy for homes and businesses. Samsung's shares managed to rise four per cent following Elon Musk's tentative hint. In its first quarter of operation, Tesla managed to install 2500 Powerwalls, and 100 Powerpacks across Africa, Europe and North America.

The exclusive work with Tesla is "great news" for Japan-based Panasonic, said Darrell West, director of the Center for Technology Innovation at the Brookings Institution, a public policy think tank based in Washington.

Tesla has taken 373,000 orders for the Model 3, which has a starting price of $35,000, about half its luxury Model S liftback sedan.
