Santa Monica, USA, 9 November, 2023 StoreDot, the pioneer of extreme fast charging (XFC) battery technology for electric vehicles, is collaborating with Polestar. The goal is to technically explore and demonstrate how XFC battery cell technology can be applied to an existing platform, and show what a production-level solution could look like.
Polestar made the announcement at Polestar Day in Los Angeles, California. StoreDot’s ‘100-in-5’ XFC cell charging was demonstrated alongside a prototype of a Polestar battery module.
Following Polestar’s investment in StoreDot and as part of an ongoing strategic partnership, the two companies are now already in advanced collaboration. They are working to demonstrate StoreDot’s production-ready XFC technology at full scale in a Polestar 5 prototype vehicle in 2024. The detailed collaboration includes key integrations such as the engineering design and cooling.
Dr. Doron Myersdorf, StoreDot CEO “This is a huge step for StoreDot. It is a strong endorsement that our ground-breaking technology is readying for mass production. Moreover, we feel extreme pleasure and pride. Polestar aims to be the first automotive company to showcase our extreme fast charge battery cells in a full-scale, driveable prototype. Polestar is already a strategic investor in our business, but this really cements and builds on our collaboration. We still have lots of work to do to fully integrate our systems into a production car. However, our teams have already fully engaged, and we will demonstrate those results in the coming months.
“We can’t wait to see this technology in the hands of customers taking advantage of such game changing charging speeds.”
Thomas Ingenlath, Polestar CEO “StoreDot was our first financial investment in another company. We have been collaborating with them to apply their advanced technology in proof-of-concept Polestar cars. StoreDot’s pioneering extreme fast charging batteries can revolutionize the ownership experience for EV owners. Moreover, combined with our upcoming top-of-the-line electric powertrain, they offer the ability to recharge in minutes.”
StoreDot is a world leader in silicon-dominant chemistries. These chemistries are essential for electric vehicles to be able to charge at extremely high speeds. The company has already unveiled its ‘100inX’ strategic technology roadmap. It outlines three generations of StoreDot technologies: Silicon dominant XFC, semi-solid state, and post-lithium architecture. This roadmap reiterates the anticipated milestones over the next decade with 100in5 targeted for 2024, 100in3 for 2028, and 100in2 for 2032.
