Extreme fast charging Israeli battery company StoreDot said it is on track for mass production readiness of its extreme fast charging batteries next year.
The 100in5 silicon-dominant batteries will, according to plan, deliver a range of 100 miles (160 km) in five minutes of charge, hence the name.
Dr Doron Myersdorf, StoreDot CEO, said: “We are working with many global OEMs and it’s clear that some are already changing their mindset to adopt advanced battery technologies faster. But not every OEM behaves like this.”
The company is working on three generations of silicon-dominant anode, semi-solid-state and post-lithium batteries.
It confirmed the timings for these to enter mass production and adoption will be delivered over the coming decade. Charging with 100in5 (100 miles in five minutes) to be commercially ready as soon as next year, 100in3 by 2028 and 100in2 by 2032.
StoreDot said its XFC battery cells are currently being evaluated by 15 global automotive manufacturers. They are not being named.
Myersdorf said some OEMs are rigidly sticking to testing regimes that “hinder the ability to take advantage of battery breakthroughs”. He called on car makers to work more in tandem with technology companies to enable and accelerate innovation.
