The first tangible results of this collaboration are expected next year when initial samples of these XFC cells will be delivered for rigorous testing. A key highlight of StoreDot's XFC technology is its capability to provide 160 kilometres of driving range with just 5 minutes of charging.


Dr Doron Myersdorf, StoreDot CEO "This is a highly significant agreement for both StoreDot and Volvo Cars. Our teams are now working together at pace, developing B-sample cells for Volvo Cars' next-generation fully electric architectures. There is a huge amount of work to do, optimising all aspects of the system to meet Volvo's exacting requirements. But we are confident that we will be delivering our fast-charging technology for real-world testing as early as next year with the goal to enable Volvo Cars customers to benefit from our game-changing XFC battery, which enables 100 miles of range in just five minutes."


Javier Varela, Chief Operating Officer & Deputy CEO of Volvo: "Volvo Cars is already a strategic investor in StoreDot, but this newly agreed collaboration takes our 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. We can't wait to see the fruits of our work being tested in the real world."
