Battery innovator StoreDot is collaborating with Polestar on an engineering project to demonstrate how StoreDot’s XFC battery cell technology can be applied to an existing platform, and show what a production-level solution could look like.
Following Polestar’s investment in StoreDot, the two companies 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, CEO of StoreDot: “This is a huge step for StoreDot and a strong endorsement that our ground-breaking technology is readying for mass production. Polestar aims to be the first automotive company to showcase our extreme fast charging battery cells in a full-scale, driveable prototype. We still have lots of work to do to fully integrate our systems into a production car, but our teams are already fully engaged, and we will be demonstrating 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, CEO of Polestar: “StoreDot was our first financial investment in another company, and we have been collaborating with them to apply their advanced technology in proof-of-concept Polestar cars. 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.”
