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.
During an event in Los Angeles, Polestar showcased a prototype battery module that has been engineered to incorporate StoreDot’s XFC technology. This collaboration is part of an expansive engineering project with the goal of demonstrating this technology in a full-scale Polestar 5 prototype vehicle by 2024.
Thomas Ingenlath, the CEO of Polestar, highlighted the advancements StoreDot has made in fast charging technologies and expressed pride in Polestar’s investment and partnership in this achievement. StoreDot’s cutting-edge batteries, when combined with Polestar’s advanced electric powertrains, are expected to have a strong impact the electric vehicle market by drastically reducing charging times.
Dr. Doron Myersdorf, CEO of StoreDot, emphasized the crucial support and collaboration from Polestar in the development of the XFC technology. With plans to demonstrate a fully charged battery module next year, StoreDot’s innovation is anticipated to significantly diminish the prevalent ‘charging anxiety’ associated with electric vehicles.
