StoreDot and BP fully charge an electric vehicle in five minutes

StoreDot and BP have demonstrated a live, full-charge of a two-wheel electric vehicle (EV) in just five minutes.

An electric scooter equipped with StoreDot’s charging battery demonstrated that this technology can charge an electric vehicle in only five minutes.

This proof-of-concept is a major milestone for ultra-fast charging battery technology and its game-changing potential to accelerate the adoption of EVs.

StoreDot’s ultra-fast charging battery technology offers the potential to bring electric vehicle charging times down to current refuelling times.

When coupled with the required ultra-fast charging infrastructure, it is expected to dramatically improve the EV ownership experience and play a key role in the earlier adoption of EVs – reducing the environmental impact of transportation as a result.

“By using a two-wheel electric vehicle from Torrot, we have demonstrated the transformative potential of this technology for the first time in a real-life application, which will be applied to four-wheel electric vehicles in the future,” said Dr Doron Myersdorf, CEO of StoreDot.

“Ultra-fast charging is at the heart of BP’s electrification strategy, which is why we invested in StoreDot last year,” said Jon Salkeld, technology director for BP’s Advanced Mobility Unit.

StoreDot will continue to work with BP, and its other key strategic partners, to progress the development and deployment of its ultra-fast charging battery technology across industry.
