Volkswagen Reportedly Acquires Stake In QuantumScape

Volkswagen AG (XTRA:VOW3) has bought a stake in QuantumScape Corporation, reported Bloomberg citing people familiar with the matter. The people, who asked not to be identified because the plans are private, said that Volkswagen is considering using the energy-storage technology, which is fireproof, for vehicles from the namesake brand as well as Porsche and Audi. The people said that tests to show the system is viable for cars are due to be completed in mid-2015. One of the people said, "The Volkswagen of America unit bought a 5% holding and has options to raise the stake." Peter Thul, a spokesman at Volkswagen, declined to comment to Bloomberg on any investment. Calls to the main switchboard and an e-mail to QuantumScape by Bloomberg seeking comment weren’t answered.
