Polestar makes investment in fast charging battery tech company

StoreDot successfully demonstrated a live extreme fast charging of a EV battery cell in April 2022 and aims to have a product in the market which will be able to add 100 miles to a battery cell in just 5 minutes by the end of 2023. As part of the company’s roadmap they are also aiming to have technology available by 2032 which will see 100 miles added to a vehicle’s range in just 2 minutes.

Incredible cutting-edge technology which promises to revolutionise the EV battery market.

Polestar isn’t the first company to invest in StoreDot, it joins the likes of Samsung, BP, TDK and Daimler in betting on the success of the Israeli-based tech company.
