VW invests in re-invention of electric car battery

Germany’s largest carmaker VW has announced that it will invest 100 million US dollars in a US company that specialises in the production of “super batteries,” Hanna Decker writes in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

The company named QuantumScape utilises solid state battery technology, which in about 15 years could replace the currently dominant lithium-ion batteries, Decker says.

The energy density of e-car batteries, and therefore also the range of these vehicles, could be doubled with the new technology, said VW research head Axel Heinrich. VW and QuantumScape have agreed to launch serial production of solid state batteries by 2025, Decker adds.

Agelbert NOTE: Excuse me if I appear a bit suspicious about VW's motives. By 2025, any manufacturer that has not transitioned completely to EVs will probably go bankrupt. Putting the pollution issue aside, as if we actually could, the internal combustion engine simply cannot compete with an electric motor and battery pack in efficiency. Once mass production of EVs is routine, the cost cutting benefits of manufacturing vehicles with a small number of moving parts will make EVs so cheap that buying a gas guzzler will be a pollution lover's luxury item.
Rob not the poor, because he is poor: neither oppress the afflicted in the gate:
For the Lord will plead their cause, and spoil the soul of those that spoiled them. Pr. 22:22-23
