Mercedes-Benz teams up with ProLogium on solid-state batteries

Mercedes-Benz and battery firm ProLogium are teaming up to develop solid-state batteries. The automaker will make an unspecified investment in ProLogium, and will take a seat on the company’s board of directors. The first test vehicles using the new batteries are not expected to appear for several years.

“We believe that range and efficiency are the new industry benchmarks for electric cars. Solid-state technology helps to cut down battery size and weight. This is why we are partnering with companies like ProLogium to ensure that Mercedes-Benz continues to break new ground in the automotive sector—for the benefit of our customers,” says Mercedes-Benz CTO Markus Schäfer.
