SES Hybrid Li-Metal Batteries

The performance of Li-Metal. The manufacturability of Li-ion.

Introducing the most mature, practical, and independently validated Li-Metal battery for electric vehicles (EVs).

The power of SES hybrid Li-Metal batteries.

  • Projected 400 Wh/kg and 1,000 Wh/L, providing longer driving range to EVs.
  • Capable of 80% charge in less than 15 minutes.
  • Ultra-thin Li-Metal anode reduces battery weight and production costs.
  • Proprietary electrolyte and AI algorithm greatly enhance safety.
  • Manufacturable at scale using existing infrastructure and processes.
