Tesla's battery maker suspends cobalt supplier amid sanctions concern

Updated : July 20, 2018 12:07 AM IST

The Japanese electronics giant, the exclusive supplier of batteries to Tesla, made the comments following questions from Reuters about whether the batteries contained Cuban cobalt.
Panasonic said it was unable to tell how much cobalt sourced from Cuba via its Canadian supplier ended up in the batteries it provided to the US market.
The United States imposed sanctions on Cuba after Fidel Castro nationalised swathes of American assets more than 50 years ago.
