The battery company has been working on the fastest-charging prototype for an electric car for several years, and Polestar and StoreDot are working together to show it off.
The StoreDot “100in5” battery prototype will debut in a Polestar 5 prototype automobile next year. The high-speed charging (XFC) cell in the battery can give cars a range of 100 miles in just five minutes.
The news came out on Polestar Day in Los Angeles from the two businesses. StoreDot demonstrated how a Polestar battery module could charge its “100in5” XFC cell while confirming the relationship.
Neither business admitted to working jointly, but they had previously examined their battery technology.

Our CEO, Dr. Doron Myersdorf, said, “We can’t wait for customers to get their hands on this technology and use the game-changing charging speeds.” “This is a big step forward for StoreDot and a strong sign that our cutting-edge technology is ready to be mass-produced.” Polestar wants to be the first car company to show off our extremely fast-charging battery cells in a full-size, driveable prototype, which makes us very happy and proud.
StoreDot has worked on the “100in5” battery for a few years. At the beginning of October, the company revealed that it had completed 1,000 fast-charging cycles without any major cell damage. There were a lot of charging profile tests that led to this.
StoreDot already works with EV makers like Ola Electric, VinFast, and Volvo, a Geely Motors company and a sister company to Polestar. Neither business admitted to working jointly, but they had previously examined their battery technology.
