Xing Mobility EV Batteries Use Liquid Immersion Cooling

While many companies pitch electric vehicles as efficient, eco friendly alternatives to gas powered cars, Taiwan's Xing Mobility is taking a different approach. In 2017, the company unveiled plans for a 1000 kilowatt (1341-hp) monster of an electric car, and claimed their prototype would be able to reach 200 km/h from a standstill in just 5.1 seconds. In order to reach those insane figures, the company wants to use the same technique 3M showed off in a demo yesterday: liquid immersion cooling. On Xing Mobility's website, they claim the "extreme" battery pack is already good for 1126hp when submersed in 3M Novec fluid, and the video they just released suggests that it significantly increases durability.

New Atlas's older article mentions that Xing Mobility hopes to sell the the 1-megawatt electric supercar sometime in 2019. The company's latest news blurb claims they've already road tested a prototype, and are also working on a commercial truck that incorporates some of the same technology.
