Porsche Is Investing Heavily On Electric Vehicle Batteries

Porsche Is Investing Heavily On Electric Vehicle Batteries

May 5, 2022 / By Zunair Tahir / Automotive News

Porsche intends to expand its electric vehicle (EV) manufacturing with more efficient batteries. Group 14 Technologies, a US-based firm known for its revolutionary contributions to lithium-silicon battery technology, has received $100 million in a series C fundraising round from the German automotive giant. Group 14 is actively working on worldwide plans to manufacture anode materials for lithium-ion batteries.


The business plans to use the funding to develop high-quality, commercially accessible battery cells. These cells are thought to have uses in small-scale manufacturing, motorsports, and high-performance cars.

The anodes, according to Group 14, can store 50% more energy than traditional electric car batteries. A joint venture is anticipated to begin mass manufacturing in 2024. Porsche isn’t the only company that has invested in Group 14, with a total of $400 million invested in the battery producer.

For a long time, the electric vehicle industry has relied primarily on Li-ion batteries. Despite having a well-established supply-and-demand relationship, Li-ion is under danger from more efficient alternatives. Carmakers have been digging for new ideas in a quest to reduce production costs and make electric vehicles more accessible and lucrative.

For firms like Porsche, who want a piece of the newly formed market, luxury EV racing has been a ferocious battleground.

Porsche will be able to tap into the untapped potential of new technology thanks to the $100 million investment. Porsche has previously released the Taycan, a completely electric vehicle that has become one of the most popular premium electric vehicles on the market.

The studio’s next game, Forza Horizon 5, will be published in November 2021, according to Xbox’s E3 2021 preview earlier this month.

Playground also highlighted the future game’s influence on Forza Horizon 4 content production on Monday’s edition of video show Forza Monthly. Following the release of the Series 37 update for Forza Horizon 4 on June 29, subsequent updates will not feature new content.

Playground senior producer Tom Butcher remarked, “With Forza Horizon 5’s release being our priority over the next several months, we’ve made some modifications to Forza Horizon 4’s monthly series updates.”

“As a result, beginning with Series update 38, players who are familiar with the game will notice the restoration of material from Series 7 to 32. Consider it a mix tape that includes the return of some of your favorite material as well as newly introduced new features.”

“Although we aren’t expecting to introduce any brand-new vehicles or features in the coming months, you should have a lot of fun reliving these situations and seeing how you manage them the second time around,” he continued. Photo challenges, prizes, the Forzathon Shop, and backstage voting will all be available as usual, thanks to all of our latest Series updates.”

When asked if the game will continue to receive updates after the release of Forza Horizon 5, Butcher stated, “We do intend to make sure Forza Horizon 4 continues to be a great experience, but we aren’t ready to disclose precise plans quite yet.”
