Samsung SDI unveiled new electric car batteries and auto materials at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on Monday.
It was the first international trade fair in which Samsung SDI took part since the merger with materials division of the Cheil Industries in July last year.
The 120-Ah battery for electric vehicles is capable of running 300 km on just one charge.
The metallic material does not require painting and is strongly resistant to scratch-induced peeling and discoloration.
It was selected as the most innovative material at the 44th Society of Plastic Engineers Automotive Innovation Awards last year, and will be used on Ford's 2015 Mondeo.
