StoreDot promises 100 miles of range per 2-minute charge by 2032

An Israeli startup StoreDot has been attracting attention in recent months with its extreme fast charging (XFC) battery technology for electric vehicles. The company has now revealed its strategic technology roadmap, labeled ‘100inX’, which will deliver batteries capable of charging a 100 miles of range on just a 2-minute charge, with mass production readiness planned within ten years.

StoreDot is also firmly on track for its first milestone – producing its silicon-dominant anode XFC lithium-ion cells at scale by 2024 that will be capable of delivering 100 miles of range in 5 minutes of charge. At the same time, the company is already at an advanced stage in the development of solid-state technologies, which will improve batteries by a further 40% within the next four years and enable a charging time of 160 km in just 3 minutes, making them ready for mass production by 2028.

100in5, 100in3, and 100in2 of miles per minute of charging are three generations of StoreDot technologies of Silicon dominant XFC, semi solid-state, and full solid-state. The 2024 goal will be achieved using silicon-based batteries with around 300 Wh/kg of energy density, while the second step in 2028 will require solid-state batteries with 450 Wh/kg energy density. Planned for 2032, the 100in2 battery will mark the transition to the post-lithium era with more than 550Wh/kg energy density.

The company is committed to a rapid transition to a cleaner, zero-emission world and its strategic technology roadmap extends long after 2024. StoreDot’s ground-breaking extreme fast charging cells will be available in both pouch and the 4680 family form factor. Pioneering work for these XFC cells has been undertaken with the participation of global experts from Israel, the UK, the US, and China. ‘100in5’ cells of StoreDot’s XFC technology are already being tested by a number of automotive OEMs in the real world.
