    More Great News for QuantumScape

    QuantumScape Corporation (NYSE: QS), a leader in the development of next generation solid-state lithium-metal batteries for use in electric vehicles, today announced that it is set to join the broad-market Russell 3000 Index and Russell 1000 Index at the end of the 2021 Russell indexes annual reconstitution, effective after the U.S. markets open on June 28, 2021

    Neither Tesla or Apple has publicly announced an intention to use QuantumScape’s solid state production battery for their EV’s, that I am aware of.

    That being said, the facts are QuantumScape’s CEO Jagdeep Singh has publicly stated the VW
    deal is non-exclusive and
    another ORM has tested their
    cells and they in talks with others.

    I previously posted an opinion on why It may be Tesla but it may very well be Apple or both in the future. QuantumScape is well on their way to becoming a revolutionary new power company.

    Tesla and Apple are super successful technology companies and have revolutionized the Electric vehicle and Consumer electronics industries. They
    achieved this by sticking to their vision and ignoring the naysayers on their journey’s to success.

    I believe early investors see the same vision in QuantumScape and have balanced the risks with rewards prior to investing.

    My opinion and why I invested in QuantumScape.

    A seeking Alpa article uses an Elon Musk comment below to base it’s theory on why “QuantumScape may be a speculative bet”

    I would argue QuantumScape has two people JB Straubel and Celina Mikolajczak that helped Tesla move from a speculative state to a success by solving those production issues, and will do the same for QS.

    “The thing to bear in mind is that there is fundamentally a constraint on battery cell output. It's like -- if one is not involved in manufacturing, it's really hard to appreciate just how hard this to scale production is. It's the hardest thing in the world. Prototypes are easy. Scaling production is very hard”

    My opinion and why I invested in QuantumScape.

    All batteries solid state! Lawn mower, drills, motor cycle, planes all electric, automobiles, cell phones, computers, snow blowers, tractors, buses, semi trucks etc. kind of a big market!

    An SA article put near term value for QS at $40-41. Essentially his rationale is sufficient cash, low debt, big partners and general worthiness of power sector it is part of.
  • Z
    Important to note Volkswagen is expected to take the lead in manufacturing as QS added: “Volkswagen is expected to have a significant role in the manufacturing ramp-up of QSV, and we have agreed that certain technology that is developed by QSV will be owned by the joint venture and licensed to each of QuantumScape and Volkswagen on a royalty-free basis.”

    Therefore, Volkswagen involvement as a JV partner for QS has tremendously improved the company’s position in scaling up for production, leveraging on Volkswagen’s large scale manufacturing expertise and experience.

    With QS being part of Russell 1000 index effective Monday and quarter end on Wednesday, some funds will automatically start to buy QS in early July. With that in mind, the CTO being the keynote speaker at a major tech conference and earnings call in early August (which will provide an update on their progress, possible outside testing or new partnership announcements, etc), would you really want to be short at this point? I believe there’s much more of an upside than a downside at this point.

    Res Publica
    QS: 70.00 Price Target:, "Battery storage is on track to become one of the most lucrative businesses as more electric vehicles are sold around the world. One of the firms to watch out for in this market segment is QuantumScape Corporation (NYSE: QS), a firm that works on developing and selling solid-state lithium-ion batteries. On April 13, investment bank Morgan Stanley gave QuantumScape Corporation (NYSE: QS) stock an Overweight rating with a price target of $70."

    I have no evidence or knowledge this will happen but it would not come as a surprise to me if Tesla was announced as the other OEM testing QuantumScape’s Cells.

    QS has a former Tesla co- founder JB Straubel and a senior engineering manager Celina Mikolajczak and I am guessing they and Elon occasionally speak to each other.

    JB Straubel was a co-founder and spent 15 years at Tesla as Chief Technical Officer.

    Celina Mikolajczak worked at Tesla as the senior manager for cell quality and materials engineering, helping to develop the battery cells and packs for Tesla’s Morel S, Model 3, and Roadster Refresh.

    It has been noticed in the press notably the Financial Times that Elon Musk has not commented on solid state battery technology, even on Tesla Battery day.

    Why, I like to speculate that he already knows where he is going to get that technology, QuantumScape of course.

    My opinion and why I invested in QuantumScape.

    Scaling a battery and a EV car production is a total different ball game altogether. Manufacturing a battery is less complex. QS ssb has been in the works for years now. QS already has a credible team And with VW solidly backing them. i am hopeful that the state of progress will be forward moving in months to come. im long and things will move quickly from here. cheers to all who are longs.
