Molicel, a tech leader in the battery industry and a TCC Group subsidiary, debuted at CES 2024, showcasing the groundbreaking innovation of ultra-high power cells that push the boundaries of performance. Teaming up with strategic partner McMurtry Automotive, Molicel demonstrates how ultra-high power battery technology is opening up a new era for the EV Hypercar sector.
McMurtry Automotive, a new brand in the EV Hypercar industry, is the idea behind one of the world’s fastest pure electric cars, the McMurtry Spéirling. This model reportedly secured the outright record at the Goodwood Festival of Speed Hillclimb in 2022, clocking an impressive 39.08 seconds that beat 2nd place by more than 6 seconds.
During CES, attendees were excited to be shown around the Goodwood record car which was debuting in the USA and attendees were also shown Molicel’s technology.
“Molicel’s leading cell technology gives McMurtry vehicles a distinct performance advantage. The combination of high power and high energy density is what sets them apart from the competition. Together we are delivering a significant shift in vehicle performance and driving experience.” Thomas Yates, Managing Director of McMurtry Automotive.
Before the show, Molicel surprised the automotive market when they launched the INR-21700-P45B one and half years ago. P45B’s leading battery specification of capacity and power was at that time unrivalled. So Molicel gained a reputation rapidly within the premium car segment with those cells already featuring in production cars from leading manufacturers around the world.
This year, Molicel unveiled the INR-21700-P50B, the next-generation power cell at CES 2024, to express their confidence and readiness. “We feel the urgency of introducing this new product at the beginning of 2024, not only for the premium sector but also embracing more mobility clients. Consumers nowadays are demanding better efficiency, fast charge convenience, and increased cycle life performance than ever. All mentioned desires can be offered by P50B” said Casey Shiue, President of Molicel.
As a 5.0Ah 21700 form factor lithium-ion cell, the INR-21700-P50B presents Molicel’s best power-to-energy ratio with their highest ever energy density of 260Wh/kg (714Wh/l), and unbeatable power of over 400W for discharging. It was designed with an ultra-fast 5C C rate for fast charging.
With the same focus on the US market, together Molicel and McMurtry are committed to demonstrating a new era of electric vehicle performance to their respective growing customer bases, with exciting record attempts in 2024.
