Charging an electric car could become a whole lot faster if you're a Polestar driver. The Swedish electric performance carmaker is developing technology to add a 100 miles of range in just five minutes.
Dubbed '100-in-5', XFC – or 'extreme fast charging' – the technology is being developed in collaboration with battery firm StoreDot. It'll give a 100-mile boost in just five minutes without degrading the life of the battery. Interestingly, Polestar says the technology will be integrated into battery packs that are 'already available' and not involve a 'battery pack design revolution'.
