Curbing Concerns: EV batteries
EVs are becoming ever more popular. Something we're obviously very excited about.
However, obstacles to greater EV adoption remain. One of the biggest is the number of myths, misconceptions, and misunderstandings surrounding the batteries that power these electric cars. Therefore, in an effort to remove these obstacles, we sat down with Polestar Lead Engineer Camilla M∅ller to discuss some of the most common ones.

The art of recycling: EV batteries
Lithium-ion batteries are state-of-the-art power sources for EVs and other portable electronic devices. And as our battery-powered universe keeps on rapidly expanding, the questions surrounding how to recycle them do the same. It's about more than just reusing materials and components. Different methods and people are involved in the process. It's complex, interesting, and important. It is, in other words, an art. And like all art, it's made to be examined.
Hot and cold behavior: how EV batteries are affected by extreme temperatures
EVs are an integral part of a cleaner, more sustainable future. And to enable widespread electric vehicle adoption, they must be optimized for all environments and conditions. After all, whether it's 25 °C or -25 °C (77 °F or -13 °F) outside, the tailpipe emissions still need to be zero.
Staying current about current: the latest from the world of batteries
Everyone knows that EVs have batteries. Keeping up with the ever-evolving world of batteries, however, is a different story. Which is why we decided to break it down. In this series, we will explore the state of the art of EV batteries, answer the most common questions about their second-life applications, and provide a breakdown of cutting-edge battery technology.
