QuantumScape builds prototype 24-layer cells; A-sample candidates

Green Car Congress

In its Q2 letter to shareholders, solid-state battery company QuantumScape reported successfully building and testing ts first prototype 24-layer cells. The 24-layer cells show similar early capacity retention behavior to the company’s earlier single-, four-, 10- and 16-layer cells. This is an important result because, as we have previously indicated, 24-layer cells represent A-sample candidates for some automotive OEMs.
