StoreDot, the extreme fast charging battery pioneer, is about to establish a global innovation hub in the United States. The Israeli company’s target is to speed up development of solid-state batteries addressed to electric vehicles. The global innovation hub will be located in California and will work alongside StoreDot’s Israel-based R&D headquarters, enabling its XFC automotive battery technologies to be mass produced by 2024. It will also immediately commence research into next-generation extreme energy density (XED) solid-state capabilities and materials, with the aim of scaling-up these advanced technologies for mass production by 2028.

StoreDot is a very innovative company with a patent pending technology capable to make battery charging much faster (here’s a post about the system developed by StoreDot). Recently, the company announced remarkable expansion plans in Asia.

StoreDot CEO talking about the innovation hub

«This new US R&D innovation hub signals that our business is rapidly expanding, as we are scaling up our extreme fast charging technologies. Establishing a facility in California will allow us to harness the world-class talent pool that’s available there, with many people and organizations at the forefront of next-generation advancements. This will bolster the development of our world leading XFC technologies and onto XED solid-state batteries. We are also actively considering establishing a manufacturing partnership in the US, as it’s essential that major automotive manufacturing centers have captive capacity, redressing the current imbalance in favor of Asian manufacturers and making batteries where electric vehicles are made», declared Dr Doron Myersdorf, StoreDot CEO. «Our new US team will work in tandem with our rapidly expanding global network bringing new skills and ideas in order that we can execute our clear technology roadmap, enabling automotive manufacturers to develop vehicles that overcome range and charging anxiety».
