South Korea’s Samsung SDI and German car manufacturer BMW have expanded its partnership with a “multi billion euro” deal that includes the supply of Samsung’s lithium-ion batteries to BMW’s future electric vehicles.

Battery maker Samsung currently provides 96-cell 60Ah battery packs for BMW’s i8 plug-in hybrid and i3 electric car models. BMW plans to increase the order by "at least" 20% to 30% in 2016 from its 2014 level.
