Polestar’s New Partnership Promises 100 Miles of Charge in 5 Minutes

Polestar collaborates with StoreDot to integrate ‘100-in-5’ extreme fast charging technology into the Polestar 5 prototype, promising a significant reduction in electric vehicle charging times.


  • Polestar and StoreDot’s ‘100-in-5’ technology enables 100 miles of charge in just five minutes, enhancing the efficiency of existing battery pack formats.

  • The advanced engineering project aims to showcase a full-scale implementation in the Polestar 5 prototype by 2024.


Polestar, in a strategic partnership with StoreDot, is set to introduce an advanced extreme fast charging (XFC) capability to its electric vehicle lineup. This initiative, referred to as ‘100-in-5’, promises to deliver 100 miles of driving range from a mere five-minute charge. This fast-charging solution is designed to be compatible with current battery pack models, eliminating the need for a complete redesign of battery technology.
