The move will help establish the company as a top supplier of the key EV parts since the production would expand nearly sixfold going from under a million units at each factory to several million units.

It's been reported that Hitachi is directing about $2.7 billion into the EV component sector over the short term, which includes research, development and the construction of new plants.
