BMW still betting on solid-state batteries

The upcoming all-new BMW executive saloon based on the firm’s Neue Klasse EV platform will use battery technology familiar with today’s electric cars – but the firm is still planning to introduce solid state batteries in the near future.

The brand remains tight-lipped on when such batteries could enter the mainstream market, but it has repeatedly pledged a commitment to introducing solid-state technology as a means of increasing range and reducing costs. It has said that it will deploy the technology in a demonstrator vehicle by 2025.

Ilika plc (LON:IKA) is a pioneer in solid state battery technology enabling solutions for applications in Industrial IoT, MedTech, Electric Vehicles and Consumer Electronics.
