According to U.S. media reports, a senior Audi executive stated that the company is in the early stages of researching and developing pure electric supercars, and that existing battery technology has become a bottleneck. Audi considers seeking technical partners.

Peter Oberndorfer, head of Audi's product and communications technology, said, "We are currently considering very comprehensive, but I personally think that further battery development is needed." Oberon Dover believes that the future of solid-state batteries may be The key to achieving the necessary combination of performance and mileage: “Peter Mertens, Director of Audi Research, also tends to favor solid-state battery solutions. Although it will take a few years, I think if developed, this will be an advantage and the battery will become more Lighter, less space."

In order to speed up the process of preparing these batteries, Oberon Dover also hinted that Audi will accept technology partners. However, Samsung SDI seems to have become a potential collaborator. The Korean company has partnered with Audi to manufacture batteries for the upcoming E-Tron electric crossover. Earlier this year, Samsung SDI also demonstrated the development of solid-state batteries at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

Audi can also work with Volkswagen Group's brands to bring next-generation batteries to market. For example, Porsche believes that these components can provide performance specifications, making electric 911 a viable option. At the same time, Audi's competitors are also developing solid-state battery technology. In Japan, Toyota, Nissan, and Honda are all developing solid-state battery technology, in addition to battery companies Panasonic and Yuasa.
