NEW YORK, Jan. 7, 2021
NEW YORK, Jan. 7, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of QuantumScape Corporation ("QuantumScape" the "Company") (NYSE: QS). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at email@example.com or 888-476-6529, ext. 7980.
The investigation concerns whether QuantumScape and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On January 4, 2021, Seeking Alpha published an article alleging that several risks associated with QuantumScape's solid-state batteries made them "completely unacceptable for real world field electric vehicles." Specifically, the article stated that the batteries' power means that they "will only last for 260 cycles or about 75,000 miles of aggressive driving." The article further alleged that because solid-state batteries are temperature sensitive, the results of the batteries' "power and cycle tests at 30 and 45 degrees above would have been significantly worse if run even a few degrees lower."
On this news, QuantumScape's stock price fell $34.49 per share, or 40.84%, to close at $49.96 per share on January 4, 2021.
