SEOUL (Reuters) - South Korea's Samsung SDI Co Ltd said on Wednesday it plans to invest 2.7 trillion won ($2.00 billion) to build a second joint electric vehicle (EV) battery plant with Stellantis NV in the United States.

The South Korean battery maker said in a regulatory filing that it plans to execute the investment starting next April to November 2027.

In July, the two companies said their joint-venture plant in the United States will have an annual production capacity of 34 gigawatt hours (GWh), with a target to start production in 2027.
