Deploying high-speed fast-charging battery infrastructure in the process to achieve widespread electric vehicle adoption has become just as important as rolling out the EVs themselves, according to StoreDot, a company specializing in extreme fast-charging (XFC) batteries for EVs.
With most drivers still naming charging anxiety as the major decision factor in transitioning from gas to electric, infrastructure rollout is often seen as the main catalyst to mass EV adoption. However, StoreDot believes that the equilibrium has shifted.
With the recent deployment of high-power chargers, the need for XFC battery technology in EVs on the road has increased. Battery technology and high-power charging infrastructure are now intertwined, forming a synergy that can unlock the mass adoption of EVs.
“Charging anxiety remains a key barrier to mass adoption of EVs,” said Dr. Doron Myersdorf, CEO of StoreDot. “Nevertheless, the ability of the vehicle to charge fast is just
