Clean Electric unveils revolutionary 12-minute charging battery technology for electric vehicles – ET Auto


The company is currently working with reputed EV OEMs in e-car, e-2W, e-3W, e-LCV, and established startups to address major roadblocks to enable mass adoption.

Clean Electric, one of the developer of XFC battery technology for electric vehicles, has unveiled its revolutionary rapid recharging battery technology that can fully charge electric vehicles in under 12 minutes. This groundbreaking advancement represents a major leap forward, with EV charging times ranging from 60 minutes to 120 minutes.

The company’s proprietary battery technology uses universal CCS 2 DC charging standards, ensuring compatibility across all EV models form-factors, positioning it as a game-changer for the entire industry. The fireproof batteries had been tested for 3700 rapid charge cycles with only 11% degradation in the overall range. The energy storage solution firm manufactures the batteries at its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Pune, the plant is well equipped to produce up to 1200 battery packs per month the company said in its media release.

The groundbreaking technology by Clean Electric, has been under development for 4 years and is backed by 4 granted patents both domestic and US. Their innovative battery architectures had several industry-first technologies, such as direct contact liquid cooling (DCLC) for e-4W & large battery systems, self-contained adaptive active liquid cooling (SCALC) for e-2W & e-3W battery systems and DCLC with Integrated cell to pack (CTP) battery architecture, which will allow intrinsically safe batteries, mitigating thermal runaway risk, and enable Rapid charging with higher packaging efficiency to boost EV range without added degradation. The company is currently working with reputed EV OEMs in e-car, e-2W, e-3W, e-LCV, and established startups to address major roadblocks to enable mass adoption. Some of the poignant issues include EVs catching fire, anxiety from long charging times (minimum 1 hour), and the limited range (200-300 km) of current EVs, the release added.

Clean Electric recently held a live demonstration in Pune, showcasing a 2.2 kWh e-2W battery & 12.5 kWh e-3W, charging from 0-80% State of Charge (SOC) in just 10 minutes at a constant of 5C charge rate using BIS-approved Type 6, Bharat DC-001 & globally accepted CCS 2 DC Public Charger, making it the world’s fastest- charging production electric vehicle.

Incepted in 2020 by Akash Gupta, Abhinav Roy & Ankit Joshi, Clean Electric develops, manufactures, and supplies advanced energy storage solutions for EVs and grid applications. The company has built advanced liquid-cooled battery solutions for 2 Wheelers, 3 Wheelers, e-Cars and Grid Storage. With a commitment to sustainable innovation, the company aims to accelerate the transition to green electric mobility.

Ankit Joshi, Chief Product Officer at Clean Electric said, “This is a revolutionary moment for all of us at Clean Electric, our proprietary 12-minute charging technology sets a new global standard that will drive the EV industry forward. Committed to sustainability, we strive to democratize RAPID Charging for EVs coupled with long battery life, reducing environmental impact and shaping the future of electric vehicles.”

“Clean Electric plans to introduce Gen 3 batteries next fiscal year, enabling affordable, high-energy density batteries to take rapid charging to the masses,”he further added.

“We support Shri Nitin Gadkari Ji audacious vision to stop the production of new fossil fuel based combustion engine vehicle by 2034, I firmly believe Clean Electric will be the strongest catalyst in the ev-ecosystem to enable shift to renewable energy powered electric vehicle, also we need to add “Design in India” to the narrative of “Make in India” and make India technology powerhouse globally for other country to follow India’s footsteps/ successful scalable models/ solutions to benefit human mankind” added Akash Gupta, Co-Founder at Clean Electric.

Clean Electric has raised seed funding of USD 2.2 million in October 2022 led by Kalaari Capital. The investment is utilized in advancing energy storage solutions for e-2W, e-3W, e-4W & grid storage and setting up the manufacturing facility in Pune to produce 1200+ battery packs per month.
