- StoreDot’s ‘100in5’ cells offer 100 miles of range in just 5 minutes of charging, addressing EV adoption challenges.
Extreme Fast Charging could be the flagship development of Volvo’s next-generation EVs
EV charging specialists, StoreDot, have forged a strategic collaboration with Volvo Cars. Together, they intend to advance EV technology, focusing on the development of Extreme Fast Charging (XFC) battery cells for Volvo’s next-generation EVs.
Teams from both StoreDot and Volvo Cars will pool their expertise to craft XFC B-samples, specifically optimized for Volvo’s forthcoming EV models. The first tangible results from this ambitious endeavour could materialize as early as next year.
StoreDot, renowned for its ‘100in5’ cells, has set a high bar in the world of EVs. These cells can deliver a remarkable 100 miles of range after just five minutes of charging. This technological breakthrough has been a game-changer. It addresses the critical challenges of range and charging anxiety that have held back broader EV adoption.
Dr. Doron Myersdorf, StoreDot CEO commented:
“This is a highly significant agreement for both StoreDot and Volvo Cars. Our teams are now working together at pace, developing B-sample cells for Volvo Cars’ next generation fully electric architectures. There is a huge amount of work to do, optimizing all aspects of the system to meet Volvo’s exacting requirements. But we are confident that we will be delivering our fast-charging technology for real world testing as early as next year with the goal to enable Volvo Cars customers to benefit from our game changing XFC battery which enables 100 miles of range in just five minutes.”
Javier Varela Chief Operating Officer & Deputy CEO of Volvo added:
“Volvo Cars is already a strategic investor in StoreDot, but this newly agreed collaboration takes our relationship a step further. We are delighted to be working together to develop advanced sample cells for our future EVs. There is a lot of work to be done but the opportunities to develop exciting new charging technologies together are huge. We can’t wait to see the fruits of our work being tested in the real world.”
This development comes on the heels of StoreDot’s recent performance feedback for its XFC electric vehicle battery cells. They put these through rigorous testing with 15 leading global automotive manufacturers and strategic partners.
With this partnership, StoreDot and Volvo Cars are driving the EV industry toward a more electrifying future. Stay tuned as the EV landscape continues to evolve. The collaboration aims to offer faster charging and extended range which can slash concerns and increase adoption.
