Panasonic Energy and Mazda to discuss EV battery partnership

Panasonic Energy and Mazda Motor will negotiate a medium- to long-term partnership for EVs and batteries.

The companies will begin negotiations to supply Mazda with cylindrical lithium-ion batteries manufactured at Panasonic Energy’s plants in Japan and North America and install them in EVs scheduled to launch in the latter half of the decade. Previously, Mazda had installed Panasonic batteries in its Demio EV, which the company had leased in Japan since 2012.

“As part of our electrification initiatives, Mazda is working with its partners in three phases to flexibly respond to changes in regulatory trends, consumer needs and other areas,” said Masahiro Moro, Director and Senior Managing Executive Officer of Mazda.
