Panasonic has been one of the leaders in the electrification of mobility. The shift to electrified mobility is the next revolution in transportation, which we’re helping to power. Panasonic innovates to advance its battery technology and production capabilities. In Europe, we drive the electrification of electric vehicles with expertise in high-voltage applications. From onboard chargers to battery management systems to motors and energy components for e-bikes.

Batteries for Electric Vehicles

Panasonic has decades of electrified-vehicle experience, from the development to mass production of battery cells. In addition to supplying batteries for hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and full-electric vehicle lines, we also design, engineer, and manufacture complete battery management systems with the objective of optimising safety and performance.
