Samsung files patents for electric vehicle components

Samsung’s moved successfully from TVs to phones, and somewhat less successfully to watches, so why not a car? The Korean consumer electronics giant filed patents for parts that include a new electric motor and tires designed for an electric vehicle. The patents were filed with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office and Korea Intellectual Property Rights Information Service.

Samsung Group, South Korea’s largest conglomerate, is notoriously tight-lipped about its business plans. But a series of patent filings give an inkling of its interest in one niche segment: the market for electric vehicles.
