Tesla Model S Range With Prototype Battery

An American company claims to have developed a prototype electric vehicle battery with a range of 1,210 kilometres on a single charge. In December, Our Next Energy (ONE), a battery developer based in Michigan, completed road tests with its experimental 203.7kWh Gemini unit installed in a Tesla Model S.

“We want to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles by removing range anxiety, which is currently holding most consumers back,” said Mujeeb Ijaz, ONE’s founder and CEO. “We’re now concentrating on turning this proof-of-concept battery into a new product called Gemini, which will enable long-distance trips on a single charge while lowering costs and increasing safety by utilising sustainable materials.”

The Gemini battery, according to ONE, will help EVs overcome excess battery drain caused by extreme weather, high-speed driving, or towing trailers. “In the same package space,” Ijaz claimed, the Gemini will “double the available energy on board.”

ONE also claims that its battery will relieve pressure on EV infrastructure by reducing the need for charging station queues and overcoming long recharging times.
