June 6 (Reuters) - Europe is seeking to attract electric vehicle (EV) battery makers to build factories in the region - home to carmakers such as Volkswagen and Stellantis - as it tries to cut dependency on Asia and win a green subsidies race with the United States.

Below is an overview, including by country listing, of those operating and those planned:


* Automotive Cells Company (ACC) - a JV of Stellantis , Mercedes Benz and TotalEnergies - secured financing worth 4.4 billion euros ($4.76 billion) in February. It plans to spend over 7 billion euros on three gigafactories in Europe with 40 GWh capacity each by 2030.

However, ACC said in June it had paused work on factories in Germany and Italy as it switches to lower-cost batteries amid slowing demand for electric vehicles.

* Stellantis aims to build a plant to produce lithium iron phosphate (LFP) batteries in Europe as part of a planned joint venture with Chinese EV battery giant CATL .

CEO Carlos Tavares said in January the group was in talks with the Spanish government to secure subsidies to build a gigafactory in the country.
