HERZLIYA (Israel): Extreme fast charging (XFC) battery technology specialist StoreDot has signed a multi-year agreement with Volvo Cars to develop an optimised battery for next-generation Volvo cars.

This collaboration, with experts from Volvo Cars and StoreDot working together, will lead to the development of XFC cells which will be optimised and tailored for Volvo’s future electric vehicle architectures. It’s expected that the first samples will be delivered for testing next year.

Volvo Cars is an investor in StoreDot but this newly agreed collaboration takes their relationship a step further.

"We are delighted to be working together to develop advanced sample cells for our future EVs. There is a lot of work to be done but the opportunities to develop exciting new charging technologies together are huge," said Volvo deputy CEO and chief operating officer Javier Varela.

StoreDot's XFC battery are said to be able to deliver 160km of range in just five minutes.

Recently, StoreDot reported performance feedback for the evaluation and integration A-Samples testing phase of its XFC electric vehicle battery cells.

The comprehensive testing programs took place earlier this year by 15 leading global automotive brand manufacturers from Europe, Asia, and the US, as well as several of StoreDot’s strategic ecosystem partners.
