Gogoro jointly developed the new Solid State battery prototype with ProLogium Technology, a leader in solid-state Lithium Ceramic batteries.
Gogoro is unveiling their first swappable Solid-State Battery Prototype, which will integrate with Gogoro’s existing vehicles and battery swapping network. The new Lithium ceramic batteries are expected to increase the battery capacity to 140% or greater, from 1.7 kWh to 2.5 kWh.
After recently marking the milestone of manufacturing their One-millionth Battery, Gogoro takes another step as the leader in battery swapping ecosystems, announcing their very first solid-state lithium ceramic battery prototype for 2-wheel battery swapping.
The Lithium Ceramic technology was jointly developed by Gogoro and ProLogium Technology, a global leader in solid-state battery technology and the new Gogoro solid-state battery prototype integrates with Gogoro’s existing vehicles and swapping network.
“Gogoro is unveiling the world’s first solid-state battery for two-wheel battery swapping because it’s imperative we take advantage of the latest battery innovations to introduce a new era of electric transportation growth and adoption in our cities,”
“We partnered with ProLogium Technology, a global leader in solid-state battery innovation, to jointly develop this new battery that delivers higher energy density for better range, improved stability and safety, and is reverse compatible with all existing Gogoro-powered vehicles.”Horace Luke, founder, chairman, and chief executive officer of Gogoro
As a next generation of battery chemistry, solid-state lithium ceramic batteries are one of the promising technologies that could replace traditional lithium-ion batteries and become the mainstream for electric vehicles. Solid-state batteries provide higher energy density per pound and deliver greater range for electric vehicles. Gogoro estimates that its solid-state batteries will increase capacity of current lithium batteries by 140% or greater, from 1.7 kWh to 2.5 kWh.
“As leading global battery innovators, Gogoro and ProLogium have partnered to jointly design solid-state battery prototypes that integrate with Gogoro’s battery swapping network and two-wheel vehicles,”
“Solid-state battery technologies present a new phase in the future of electric vehicles, and we look forward to advancing this Gogoro prototype battery into a commercial offering in the future.”Vincent Yang, founder and CEO of ProLogium Technology
Gorgoro has established many strong partnerships over the last year, from Dachangjiang Group (DCJ), China’s Top ICE 2-Wheel Vehicle Maker, and Hero MotoCorp India, through partnerships with Yadea. The company has also started important partnerships with input material manufacturers to allow the company’s growth, like Foxconn, the largest electronics manufacturer worldwide.
The new alliance with ProLogium will allow the company to lead in battery capacity, which can integrate to their existing products seamlessly, and continue to expend their battery swapping technology and network globally.
Guidehouse Insights recognized Gogoro Network as the world’s leading battery swapping platform for lightweight urban vehicles in 2021, which is central to Gogoro’s ecosystem. With Gogoro Network, swappable batteries can be ‘refueled’ smartly, scalable, and continuously optimized, making them more useful to people, communities, and businesses.
With more than 450,000 riders and over 10,000 swapping GoStations at over 2,300 locations, Gogoro Network is hosting 340,000 daily battery swaps with the grand total of over 260 million battery swaps to date.
ABOUT PROLOGIUM TECHNOLOGY
Founded in 2006, ProLogium Technology is an energy innovation company focused on solid-state battery research, development, and manufacturing, that provides next-generation battery solutions for electric vehicles in consumer markets and industrial applications.
But how do their batteries really work? ProLogium’s websites shows the technology is based on highly stable oxide electrolyte that is used to replace flammable liquid polymer electrolyte. To solve issues that arise from using oxide electrolyte, like low ion conductivity, brittleness, and poor interface contact, the company uses Ceramic oxide electrolyte to solve these issues.
With over 200 patents to their name, ProLogium’s technology seems to be well established, and backed by over 15 years of research and development. Here are some of the outputs of these patents:
CeramionTM – ProLogium’s pioneering internal conduction technology solves initial weakness of higher inner resistance to enable 5C fast charge.
Micro CellTM – Micro-island-like composition that organizes independent microscopic cells in a unique structure. Capable of dynamic bending with no cracking issues.
LogithiumTM – Proprietary solid-state battery cell packaging technology that greatly enhances LCB’s bending capability while making it airtight and watertight, simultaneously improves LCB’s yield ratio.
The ProLogium battery meets a number of requirements for batteries, including extreme safety, high energy density, and low cost. The company has supplied nearly 8,000 solid-state battery sample cells to global automakers for testing and module development on its automated pilot production line.
