StoreDot appoints new chairman

Carl-Peter Forster, a senior adviser and board member of several car companies, is now StoreDot's chairman.

StoreDot has appointed Carl-Peter Forster as its chairman. Forster is currently a senior adviser and board member of several car companies. Past roles have included being a senior adviser to the Geely Group chairman and a board member of Volvo Cars. He has also served as CEO of Tata Motors and General Motors’ President of Europe. He spent the formative years of his career at BMW where he held many senior engineering roles and eventually rose to become a member of the management board for manufacturing.

“It’s an honor to be joining StoreDot, a company that I have admired for some time,” Forster said. “I am a passionate advocate of EVs and recognize that charging anxiety is currently a major barrier to true mass adoption of these zero-emission technologies. Therefore, the work that [Dr. Doron Myersdorf, StoreDot CEO] and his team are doing to put extreme fast charging batteries into mass production is vital for our industry. I am looking forward to working closely with them and harnessing my experience to help in taking this extraordinary technology to market.”

To date, the company says it has received investments from automotive manufacturers including Daimler, Ola Electric, Polestar, VinFast and Volvo. Additional EV OEMs are currently conducting real-world tests of XFC cell samples.
