StoreDot is collaborating with Polestar on an advanced engineering project to explore and demonstrate how extreme fast-charging (XFC) battery cell technology can be applied to an existing platform — and to show what a production-level solution could look like.
StoreDot and Polestar are working together to demonstrate StoreDot’s production-ready XFC technology in a Polestar 5 prototype vehicle in 2024. The detailed collaboration includes key integrations such as the engineering design and cooling.
“We are extremely pleased and proud that Polestar aims to be the first automotive company to showcase our fast-charging battery cells in a full-scale, driveable prototype,” said Doron Myersdorf, CEO of StoreDot. “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, but our teams are already fully engaged, and we will be demonstrating those results in the coming months.”
StoreDot specializes in silicon-dominant chemistries for fast EV charging. The company has already unveiled its ‘100inX’ strategic technology roadmap, outlining three generations of StoreDot technologies: Silicon dominant XFC, semi-solid state, and post-lithium architecture.
“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,” said Thomas Ingenlath, CEO of Polestar. “StoreDot’s extreme fast-charging battery technology, combined with our upcoming top-of-the-line electric powertrain, can revolutionize the ownership experience for EV owners, giving them the ability to recharge in minutes.”
This roadmap reiterates the anticipated milestones over the next decade with ‘100-in-5’ targeted for 2024, ‘100-in-3’ for 2028, and ‘100-in-2’ for 2032.
