Tesla Model S with twice the battery capacity goes to 1210 km>

Even Tesla CEO Elon Musk hasn’t yet brought that number into the discussion, but it was achieved with an electric car from his company: Our Next Energy (One) replaced the Model S battery with a prototype—and came up with a reload according to their own information of 752 miles, which is about 1210 km. This wasn’t possible due to being too stealthy or making more room for the batteries, but fast on the highway in winter and in the same space as the original Tesla battery.

Double the capacity in the Tesla Model S.

One sets an average speed of 55 mph during testing in the US state of Michigan at the end of December, which is roughly 88 kph – a moderate speed, with the consumption of a regular Model S still above the value by EPA standards. Who was used in the demonstration Model S before 2021 update, had 402 miles With a battery with a total capacity of 103.9 kWh. In order to drive a Tesla 752 miles without recharging, 87 percent farther, someone used a battery with a capacity nearly twice that of 203.7 kWh.

Founded in July by a longtime battery engineer, early investors include venture capital firm BMW and Bill Gates Energy Fund. According to his account, the spread of electric cars is still slowing due to fear of range. The new battery, known as the Gemini, should help prevent this from happening; The prototype in the Model S is called Gemini 001.

Technical information about the concept can hardly be found on One’s website, but the publication’s founder, Mujib Ijaz, has it Vehicle and driver information. He confirmed that the Model S’s special battery doesn’t take up more space than the original Tesla battery, but he didn’t say anything about the weight. For testing with Tesla, cells containing cobalt and nickel were used, that is, a high energy density per kilogram. In fact, one wants to realize much greater capabilities and ranges than today by expanding on LFP chemistry, and It uses less expensive raw materials and is therefore very popular with TeslaBut it’s also less weight efficient.

Accessing standard ranges with LFP

Therefore, testing with the Model S should not show One’s plans for the new Gemini battery, but just how much capacity with the latest technology would fit in today’s flat electric vehicle, Car and Driver write. The new regime with LFP should not continue until after 2023. Using this chemistry means keeping it accessible to everyone. In addition, according to the report, a small percentage of other cells have high performance requirements with proprietary cathode material. Before the end of this year, one also wants to start production of a pure LFP battery called Aries, which should already have a relatively high energy density by cutting out the modules in the pack (cell for pack).
