Tesla has a strong presence in the electric vehicle (EV) market and is working hard to become even more prominent in this area. As the demand for self-driving cars is growing rapidly, Tesla might be partnering with Samsung Electronics to gather more advanced chips for its next-generation EVs.

As per a recent report from Business Korea, Samsung is reportedly becoming Tesla’s primary provider for their 5th-generation self-driving chip (HW 5.0). This advanced chip is expected to utilize a cutting-edge 4nm process. Industry insiders have also noted that Tesla’s previous Full Self-Driving (FSD) chip was manufactured using Samsung’s 14nm semiconductors. Elon Musk’s goal of achieving fully autonomous vehicles, both Samsung and TSMC are being considered strong contenders for this partnership.

Earlier this year, news emerged online about a meeting involving Tesla’s Elon Musk and Samsung’s Lee Jae-yong. It was speculated that this meeting aimed to explore a potential collaboration between the two companies. Self-driving technology and semiconductor chips were thought to be the primary focus of interest for this collaboration. We know that Samsung holds a well-known position worldwide as a major semiconductor manufacturer. The strong possibility was that Tesla was trying to get Samsung on this project of autonomous driving chips for Tesla EVs. The full report of this meeting was covered on our website.

In related news, Tesla might be making its way to India by introducing its electric vehicles. The Indian government is also considering lowering the import tax on electric vehicles for automakers that partner with a local manufacturing unit. You can check out the full report by clicking here.
