The presentation took place at EcoMotion Week 2022 in Israel, an increasingly popular global event that brings together leading car makers including General Motors, Volvo, Ford, Continental, The Renault–Nissan–Mitsubishi Alliance and Hyundai. It further validates StoreDot’s ‘100inX’ strategic technology roadmap, which will transform automotive travel and facilitate the rapid transition to a more sustainable, zero-emissions future by delivering 100in5 by 2024, 100in3 by 2028 and 100in2 in by 2032.

The demonstration featured a 300x100 mm pouch cell produced at EVE energy's manufacturing plant in China. The battery was charged under a 10-minute time limit, during which the cell charged to 20Ah, exceeding the 0 percent to 80 percent capacity target set for the demonstration.

The cell maintained a charge rate capable of adding 100 miles of range every 5 minutes of charging. At no point did the battery temperature exceed 33-degree Celsius, well below the recommended operating temperature set by StoreDot’s engineers and all critical parameters of the cell performed at an optimum level.

“Today’s demonstration represents the successful passing of another milestone on StoreDot’s ambitious technology road map” said Yaron Fein, VP R&D at StoreDot. “Our intensive development program has already delivered batteries capable of exceeding 1200 consecutive extreme fast cycles and we aim to complete the scaling up of more than 1000 cycles in our EV-size cells by the end of this year. We remain poised to achieve 100in5 by 2024, whilst remaining firmly on track to deliver our ultimate goal of 100in2 by 2032.”

Doron Myersdorf, CEO, StoreDot, added that successfully proving StoreDot’s extreme fast charging battery technology in front of a live audience demonstrates the complete confidence the company has in its roadmap to deliver a global step-change in electric mobility.

“Away from the stage, our transformative technology continues to undergo testing by leading automotive manufacturers in grueling conditions, ensuring no stone is left unturned in the strategic pursuit of delivering excellence to our customers and consigning EV range anxiety to the history books” said Mr Myersdorf.

The StoreDot CEO also addressed a panel on the main stage at EcoMotion, entitled: ‘The end of fossil-based mobility?’ where he advocated that a revolution in EV battery charging times is essential to accelerate the trend to mass electrified mobility. Doron stated that making it as quick for drivers to recharge car batteries as it currently is to fill a tank with fuel, is essential to changing customer behaviour and encouraging greener mobility.
