"By producing battery-cell prototypes, we can analyse and fully understand the cell's value-creation processes. With this build-to-print expertise, we can enable potential suppliers to produce cells to our specifications," BMW board member Oliver Zipse said in a statement.



"The knowledge we gain is very important to us, regardless of whether we produce the battery cells ourselves, or not."
