On January 4, 2021, an article was published on Seeking Alpha highlighting various risks with QuantumScape’s solid-state batteries that make it “totally unacceptable for EVs in the real world.” Specifically, it states that battery performance means it can “only last 260 cycles, or about 75,000 miles of aggressive driving”. Since solid-state batteries are temperature sensitive, “the performance and cycle tests at 30 and 45 degrees above would have been significantly worse if they had run just a few degrees lower.”
In that news, the company’s stock price fell $ 34.49, or approximately 40.84%, to close at $ 49.96 per share on January 4, 2021.
The complaint, filed on January 5, 2021, alleges that throughout the teaching period, defendants made materially false and / or misleading statements and did not disclose material adverse facts about the company’s business, business and prospects. In particular, Defendants have failed to advise investors: (1) that the Company’s alleged success in solid-state battery performance, battery life and energy density was significantly overrated; (2) it is unlikely that the company will be able to scale its technology to the multilayer cell required to power electric vehicles; and (3) that Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations and prospects as a result of the foregoing were materially misleading and / or unfounded.
