The chemical company BASF will provide materials for high-performance battery cells in cooperation with the German car manufacturer.
German company BASF has been selected as the exclusive partner for the development of high-performance lithium-ion batteries for electric vehicles, which will be developed by the Cellforce Group, a joint venture between Porsche and Customcells. As part of the collaboration, BASF will provide materials for high-performance battery cells for fast charging and high energy density. Cellforce Group will manufacture the battery itself.
Sources told Reuters last month that the Volkswagen Group, Porsche’s parent company, is seeking a closer relationship with BASF, one of the world’s largest suppliers of battery materials.
