Range anxiety could truly be a thing of the past thanks to new battery technology teased by Our Next Energy (ONE).
According to a press release and video shared by the Detroit-based startup, ONE has successfully tested a new battery called Gemini that’s capable of providing nearly double the range of what the typical Tesla can achieve. While a Model S Plaid has a range of just under 400 miles, ONE’s video demonstrates how its Gemini battery technology can power a Tesla Model S for 752 miles on a single charge (average speed of 55 mph).
“We want to accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles by eliminating range anxiety, which holds back most consumers today,” said Mujeeb Ijaz, Founder and CEO of ONE. “We are now focused on evolving this proof-of-concept battery into a new product called GeminiTM, which will enable long distance trips on a single charge while improving cost and safety using sustainable materials.”
Tesla’s longest-range models comprise the 2022 Tesla Model S Dual-Motor AWD and 2022 Tesla Model 3 Long Range Dual-Motor AWD, which offer a range of 405 miles and 358 miles, respectively. The EV with the longest range is the 2022 Lucid Air Dream Edition R all-wheel drive with 520 miles of range, according to a recent listing shared by cars.com.
