StoreDot lays out 2024 goals, Polestar first to get XFC battery

HERZLIYA (Israel): Extreme fast charging (XFC) pioneer StoreDot has announced its major milestones for 2024.

The company will continue its path to commercialisation by pursuing mass production of its XFC technologies.

It will focus its immediate R&D efforts on developing advanced B-sample prismatic cells, through joint development programs with several global car manufacturers, as well as working with OEMs on the different form factors they require.

In collaboration with Polestar, StoreDot intends to showcase the world’s first EV fitted with XFC battery cell technology this year.

Supporting this progress, StoreDot's US team will expand into its new facility in Irvine in the United States.

StoreDot’s US arm is uniquely placed to harness the skills available on the west coast as it develops future semi-solid and solid-state batteries. It is well-positioned to directly serve the company’s US-based automotive customers.

The Israeli company said it would continue to enhance its partnerships with other automotive manufacturers and manufacturing partners, in order to scale up its global manufacturing footprint and capacity to support global car makers.

Through its "100inX" product roadmap, StoreDot's remains on track with production-readiness of XFC cells that can deliver 100 miles (160km) charged in 5 minutes this year, 100 miles charged in 4 minutes in 2026 and 100 miles charged in 3 minutes by 2028.
