QuantumScape Corporation

Period: 11/27/2020 to 12/31/2020
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: 03/08/2021



Scott+Scott Attorneys at Law LLP (“Scott+Scott”), an international shareholder and consumer rights litigation firm, announces the filing of class action lawsuits against QuantumScape Corporation, formerly known as Kensington Capital Acquisition Corp. (“QuantumScape” or the “Company”) (NYSE: QS) and other related defendants, alleging violations of federal securities laws.  If you purchased QuantumScape stock or other securities between November 27, 2020 and December 31, 2020 (the “Class Period”), and have suffered losses, you are encouraged to contact Joe Pettigrew for additional information at (844) 818-6982 or jpettigrew@scott-scott.com.

QuantumScape develops battery technology for electric vehicles and other applications.

The lawsuits allege, among other things, that the defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that the Company’s purported success related to its solid-state battery power, battery life, and energy density was significantly overstated and the Company is unlikely to be able to scale its technology to the multi-layer cell necessary to power electric vehicles.

On January 4, 2021, an article was published on Seeking Alpha arguing that QuantumScape’s solid-state batteries are “completely unacceptable for real world field electric vehicles.”  Specifically, the article said that the battery’s power “will only last for 260 cycles or about 75,000 miles of aggressive driving.” As solid-state batteries are temperature sensitive, “the 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, the Company’s stock price fell $34.49, or approximately 40.84%, to close at $49.96 per share on January 4, 2021.
