OSAKA -- Panasonic will begin supplying higher-capacity batteries for Tesla's Model 3 electric vehicles in September in a bid to keep an important customer close.

The batteries will improve power storage capacity by 5% in part by using upgraded materials. The cells will be produced at the companies' joint-venture Gigafactory 1 in the U.S. state of Nevada.
