QuantumScape and Volkswagen to finalize the location of their joint production facility in 2021

  • QuantumScape, a next-generation battery startup, has entered into an agreement with the German automaker Volkswagen to select the location of their joint-venture solid-state battery pilot facility by the end of 2021. The companies are currently contemplating Salzgitter, Germany.

  • QuantumScape has been in a joint venture with Volkswagen since 2018 to jointly develop solid-state batteries for the automaker’s next-generation EVs. The pilot-line facility, QS-1, will initially be a one-gigawatt hour (GWh) battery cell production plant. QuantumScape and Volkswagen intend to expand production capacity by a further 20 GWh at the same location.

  • Founded in 2010, QuantumScape plans to develop solid-state lithium-metal batteries for electric vehicles. In August 2020, QuantumScape claimed that the range of its solid-state battery is 80% higher than a conventional lithium-ion battery. The company expects to develop a prototype of its batteries by 2022 and commence commercial production in 2024-2025. Earlier this month, QuantumScape also announced that it had leased a facility in California to house its pre-pilot production line, QS-0.
