A company designing and manufacturing vehicle components is encompassing an innovative game-changing battery cell technology to facilitate more energy storage within the cell.
FREMONT, CA: Nikola Corporation is an organization that designs and manufactures vehicle components, electric vehicles, energy storage systems, and electric vehicle drive trains that will double a cell phone's battery capacity with a game-changing battery cell technology shortly. The new battery will increase the range of BEVs and hydrogen-electric vehicles around the world and has a record energy density of 500 watt-hours per kg on the production cell scale and 1,100 watt-hours each kg on the material scale, comprising terminals, casing, and separator that is higher than that of double lithium-ion battery cells.
The Nikola prototype cell is a novel battery eliminating binder material and current collectors by facilitating more energy storage within the cell. The prototype cell is also assumed to pass nail penetration standards, thus mitigating potential vehicle fires. Nikola is in conversations with customers for truck orders that fill production slots for more than ten years and drive Nikola to become the top truck manufacturer in the glove in terms of revenue.
The battery technology can increase the range of modern EV passenger cars from three hundred miles up to six hundred miles with limited or no development to battery size and weight, designed to operate in current vehicle conditions. Nikola's new cell technology is simple to recycle and environmentally friendly. Nikola's battery-electric trucks now can drive 800 miles entirely loaded between charges weighing 5,000 lbs. The company's hydrogen-electric fuel cell trucks exceed 1,000 miles between stops and top off in 15 minutes. This battery is an innovative free-standing electrode automotive battery that is cycled over 2,000 times with agreeable end-of-life performance along with a 40 percent reduction in weight compared to lithium-ion cells and 50 percent material cost mitigation per kWh compared to lithium-ion batteries.
Nikola Corporation is revolutionizing the transportation industry while improving the employees' lives and driving the world to be a better place. The company creates and manufactures hydrogen-electric vehicles, electric vehicle drivetrains, vehicle components, energy storage systems, and hydrogen stations.
