About:Energy and McMurtry to collaborate

About:Energy and McMurtry to collaborateAbout:Energy, a world-leading innovator in battery development software is partnering with McMurtry Automotive, a pioneer in electric vehicle (EV) innovation, to further enhance the battery technology for its record-breaking McMurtry Spéirling and Spéirling PURE customer cars.

This strategic collaboration will bring together unparalleled expertise in electric EV innovation, battery testing and modelling to improve the battery lifetime and performance of the McMurtry vehicles by harnessing the latest high-performance Molicel P50B battery — with its 5.0Ah 21700 form factor lithium-ion cell, it presents the best power-to-energy ratio and highest-ever energy density of 260Wh/kg (714Wh/l), surpassing previous benchmarks.

About:Energy will accurately model the battery cell behaviour and characterise the P50B cell’s performance, which will enable McMurtry engineers to integrate About:Energy’s crucial data into the design and simulations of their battery packs to maximise efficient fast charging and increased cycle life performance.

Gavin White, About:Energy CEO and co-founder, said: “We are working in parallel with McMurtry on the quickest and most in-depth battery knowledge transfer to date to accelerating the development process of McMurtry’s vehicles. Our aim is to eliminate the need for costly and time-consuming in-house battery testing by arming companies and their engineering teams with direct access to world-leading advanced battery intelligence, so they can build better batteries, and accelerate timelines by reducing reliance on physical testing.”

McMurtry is renowned for pushing the limits of EV performance. Its Spéirling hyper car became one of the world's fastest pure electric cars at the Goodwood Festival of Speed Hillclimb in 2022, setting a record time of 39.08sec, and since demonstrated a world beating 0-60mph time of just 1.40sec.

Kevin Ukoko-Rongione, McMurtry Automotive chief engineer, said: “Working with About:Energy feels like an extension to our in house team. Their engineers are proactive in supporting us to make the most of the battery data and insights obtained from their world class testing facilities. The benefit to us is a quicker time to market, and the benefit to our customers will be a battery pack which has both optimised performance and enhanced lifespan.”

Both companies are working closely together to empower McMurtry’s engineering team with enhanced data and virtual tools. This includes several workshops to support and familiarise engineers with the complex testing process and data outputs needed to optimise battery designs to push the limits of electric vehicle performance. The partnership highlights About:Energy’s expanded offering and the importance of battery development software for high-performance applications such as motorsports and hypercars.
