Samsung introduced the next generation of batteries for electric vehicles, with driving range of 500 kilometers after only 20 minutes of charging.

20 minutes of charging is enough for the battery to reach 80 percent of capacity, and when it is fully charged the electric vehicle will be able to drive 600 kilometers distance. This will eliminate the range anxiety of EV drivers, Samsung said in a press release. The mass production of this product is slated for 2021.

The owners of EV have little driving autonomy, and the main reason for that is the long charging time. Samsung said they have the aim to contribute to the widespread EV adoption.

If the company enables a 500 km ride on a 20 minute charge, it would be ahead of what is currently on the market. Tesla owners can get a 270 km drive range in 30 minutes of charging time.

But Tesla founder Elon Musk recently announced on Twitter, a new generation of superchargers, which will recharge batteries in seconds.
