Is This The World’s First ‘’Intelligent’’ Car Battery?
InoBat Auto from Slovakia has presented the world's first “intelligent” battery for electric vehicles, which should beat the competition with a higher energy density and an increase in range of 20%.
Ready for use after just a year of research and development, the company's Gen1 lithium battery combines artificial intelligence (AI) and high throughput technology (HTP). According to Marian Bocek, co-founder and CEO of InoBat, it contains less cobalt than batteries currently on the market.
The company, backed by a consortium of investors and technology companies, will begin producing the battery at its AI-driven battery research center and production line in Voderady, Slovakia next year.
InoBat is also advancing plans to build a 10 GWh gigafactory worth EUR 1 billion ($ 1.2 billion) that could produce 240,000 smart batteries in 2025.
Both facilities will be strategically located, just 40 km from the capital, Bratislava and in close proximity to nine major automakers, including Peugeot, KIA and Jaguar Land Rover.
Global automakers are preparing to launch hundreds of new electric car models over the next several years in response to pressure from regulators to further tighten restrictions on greenhouse gas emissions from vehicles.
The European auto industry in particular is rushing to meet stricter carbon emissions targets that will come into effect next year or face a billions of dollars in fines if they are exceeded.
