Porsche boss Oliver Flower wants to install the high-performance battery cells developed with a partner later in production vehicles. That said flower on Monday in Baden-Württembergische Weissach in the idea of the plans for a battery factory, which is expected to be built in Tübingen. Production should start in 2024. The planned factory is once again achieving a capacity of 100 megawatt hours per year. These are battery cells for 1000 cars, for example for vehicles in the field of motor sports or special models.Kretschmann advocates Factory construction
The state promotes the project with 60 million euros in taxpayers. Two-thirds of the sum comes from the federal government, one third of the country. The Baden-Württemberg Prime Minister Winfried Kretschmann (Greens) said, from the construction of the factory go out a strong signal. There is no way past Baden-Württemberg at the battery. At the new joint venture Cellforce Group, Porsche holds 83.75 percent of the shares and the rest of the Fraunhofer cancellation Customcells from Itzehoe in Schleswig-Holstein, said.
Europe tools up against US and Asia as a car battery force
As demand for electric cars grows, giant battery factories are being built across Europe.The project will be a gigafactory, a term coined by Tesla founder Elon Musk to describe his first high-volume plant for producing lithium-ion electric battery cells, deep in the Nevada desert.

The idea for the production had loud message the Stuttgart company consulting P3 Group. She had developed the concept and put the funding application with Customcells. The management consultancy rose again because they work independently on the market. Porsche invest in the new company a high double-digit million amount, said flower. He also did not exclude that the high-performance battery cell could also be used in the Volkswagen Group. In 2025, up to 80 people are to be employed in Tübingen.
The cell development partner is the chemical company BASF. The planned factory is not part of the planned six Battery cell works by Volkswagen, Flower continued. In March, VW had announced to raise six battery cell works in Europe by 2030 with partners to cover the rising demand. The four other locations in addition to Salzgitter and Skellefteå in Sweden are officially not fixed, appropriate consultations are currently running. (DPA / EST)
