Now, the cause of the car fire, there are also the latest progress. According to foreign media reports, the Ministry of transport of the Republic of Korea has conducted an investigation,Announcing the cause of the fire
It is worth noting that the battery supplier of this car is LG Chemical, and the recall may affect the reputation of the company, And modern times may turn this part of the battery supply over to competitors in LG chemistry, the Ningde era of China.
In fact, LG will not pay the cost of the car recall and software replacement after the recall.
25564 electric vehicles replace batteries directly, and the cost of photovoltaic cells is an astronomical figure for enterprises.
In addition, sources said that in South Korea's officialHyundai is likely to replace LG Chemical with products from other battery suppliers to eliminate the hidden danger.
For LG chemistry, which is competing for global power battery capacity in the Ningde era
The Kona (Hyundai) model is also worth mentioning in China,Using Ningde era domestic ternary lithium battery.Moreover, there is no domestic version of the 13 modern cars.
At present, the competition between LG Chemical and Ningde for the first share of global battery suppliers has entered a white hot stage.
The data show that 95% of Ningde's battery capacity is supplied to domestic customers, while LG chemistry has a relatively perfect market layout in Europe, and Renault, Tesla, Volkswagen and other groups are closely related to LG chemistry.
