As part of their effort to make the first fully electric pickup truck on the market, Atlis claims to have broken the charge time record for electric vehicles. The startup charged a 3kwh battery in just 12 minutes and 35 seconds, beating Porsche's time of 15 minutes for an 80 percent charge. Interestingly, the company's truck is built on an open electric platform other companies could use to build anything from "RVs and box trucks to vans and entire fleets."

"This was the key to proving our technology - recharge times for batteries is still one of the largest obstacles to wider adoption of electric vehicles." The prototype battery is a lithium-ion cell with a unique cooling system for optimum temperature management. "Properly managing cell temperatures is still overlooked by many electric vehicle manufacturers but is one of the most critical components to battery performance and longevity. Ignoring temperature management, or just providing mild surface cooling of the cells is insufficient." Hanchett added.
