Tesla’s solar battery could help boost electric cars in Asia

Tesla is in talks to supply the batteries for the electric cars of South Korea’s President Moon Jae-in, according to a person familiar with the matter.

The announcement came a day after Tesla said it was investing $1 billion to build a new battery plant in Korea.

The news comes amid rising pressure on Musk to address the growing electric vehicle market in South Korea.

Tesla was one of the first companies to invest in the solar battery market in the region, but its relationship with the government is fraught with challenges.

The government is wary of investing in the country’s nascent electric vehicle industry and has pushed to develop battery plants with a minimum of American expertise.

Solar energy has become an increasingly popular source of energy in South Korean households.

In 2020, solar PV was the third-largest source of renewable energy in the entire country, behind wind and hydroelectric power.
