StoreDot, the pioneer of extreme fast charging (XFC) battery technology for electric vehicles, is collaborating with Polestar on an advanced engineering project to technically explore and demonstrate how the XFC battery cell technology can be applied to an existing platform, and show what a production-level solution could look like.
At Polestar Day on November 9 in Los Angeles, StoreDot’s ‘100-in-5’ XFC cell charging was demonstrated, alongside a prototype of a Polestar battery module. The ‘100-in-5’ cells deliver 100 miles of range in just five minutes of charging with no battery degradation
Following Polestar’s investment in StoreDot and as part of an ongoing strategic partnership, the two companies are now already in advanced collaboration to demonstrate StoreDot’s production-ready XFC technology at full scale in a Polestar 5 prototype vehicle in 2024. The collaboration includes key integrations such as the engineering design and cooling.
Doron Myersdorf, CEO of StoreDot, said, “We are extremely pleased and proud that Polestar aims to be the first automotive company to showcase our extreme fast charging 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.”
Thomas Ingenlath, CEO of Polestar, added, “StoreDot’s pioneering extreme fast charging batteries, combined with our upcoming top-of-the-line electric powertrain, can revolutionize the ownership experience for EV owners with the ability to recharge in minutes.”
