TOKYO Shares in Panasonic Corp jumped more than 6 percent to a three-week high of 1,271 yen on Wednesday after the Nikkei newspaper said the firm is inviting a number of Japanese suppliers to join it in investing in a U.S. car battery plant it plans to build with Tesla Motor Inc (TSLA.O).
The newspaper said the investment for the new plant was expected to reach more than 100 billion yen.
Panasonic was the second-most traded stock on the main board.
