Porsche has partnered with BASF on the next generation of Usher lithium-ion batteries that can find a place in upcoming Porsche electric models around the world. BASF was selected by the Cellforce Group, a joint venture between Porsche and Customcells.
It may not be long ago that sports cars and electric power won’t work together, but almost every major sports car manufacturer has released or announced EV products recently. Porsche’s Taycan EV model is a prime example of how the present and future of mobility are based on battery life. But to improve the performance of such vehicles, Porsche is looking at BASF to provide high-energy HED NCM cathode active materials that can charge high-performance battery cells quickly and achieve high energy density. Production is likely to begin in 2024, and initially these batteries will power about 1,000 motorized sports and high-performance vehicles.

Car manufacturers like Porsche need to play a balance between having vehicles that continue to be exciting, even if they are a CO2-neutral company. “Battery cells, especially cathodic active materials, are considered here. We are very pleased that together with BASF we will bring environmental cell technology to be ready for series production,” said Michael Steiner, a member of the Executive. Research and Development Committee at Porsche AG.
It’s easy to see why Porsche is betting big on electricity. His Taycan EV has been well received in the markets where it has been marketed. In fact, the sale mark of the iconic Taycan EV 911 seems to be close. The company sold more than 9,000 EV units in the first quarter of 2021. All electric models, including the Macan, aim to get more out of it. EV, Porsche, of course, would like new-age batteries to deliver the performance that has long been expected from its vehicle
