What the members of US startups Our Next Energy (ONE) jAccording to their own statements, they have now managed to do so, but even Tesla founder Elon Musk should prick up his ears. The inventors from the state of Michigan equipped one Tesla Model S with a battery that almost doubled its official range: 752 miles, the equivalent of around 1210 kilometers, The e-limousine drove across the country at an average of 55 mph (almost 90 km/h) without charging – and that in mid-December in wintry temperatures. In a third-party verified test on a test bench, according to ONE, the power was even enough for 882 miles (almost 1420 kilometers). Tesla estimates the range of a Model S to be 400 miles.

The battery prototype called gemini 001 has one Capacity of 203.7 kilowatt hours (kWh), also roughly double the 103.9 kWh of a standard Model S battery. The spatial size is the same, but the weight should be a good 330 kilograms higher. The Gemini prototype reaches its high energy density still with the rare raw materials cobalt and nickel however, do without the future Gemini battery target. Company founder and CEO Mujeeb Ijaz told caranddriver.com magazine that the focus is on “safe” and “more sustainable” cell chemistry and “conflict-free supply chains”. According to the report, it will probably amount to an extension of LFP (lithium iron phosphate) chemistry, with a small proportion of other cells with a proprietary cathode material.
If, when and in what form a ONE battery will reach series maturity is unclear. The record drive in December 2021 was primarily a demonstration of what is possible with battery technology for electric cars. Ijaz: “We want them Accelerate EV adoption by eliminating range anxiety. Our battery is designed to enable long-distance travel on a single charge while improving costs and safety through the use of sustainable materials.” It was only at the beginning of January the Mercedes Vision EQXX electric study presented at CES 2022 in Las Vegas caused a stir with a range of 1000 kilometers. However, whether it will ever roll off the assembly line is more than questionable.
