New ultra-efficient EV battery could charge cars to 60 percent in just six minutes

It comes as Chevrolet revealed a new system in their EVs that uses a patented heat pump they say will help electric vehicles charge and accelerate faster and boost range by up to 10 percent.

The company will use the new system, named ‘Ultium’ in the first ever all-electric Corvette sports car.

General Motors President Mark Reuss described the technology as a “a patented onboard system that takes the heat generated by EV batteries and uses it to warm the cabin, create more efficient charging conditions, and even increase vehicle acceleration”.

These benefits are only possible with a ground-up EV platform like Ultium and not easily done with a retrofit, according to Reuss.
