Batteries are everywhere in today’s electronic society. What if your electric car could travel 1000 miles on a single charge, charge in 10 minutes, and last for 1 million miles?
Today just about every electric car uses lithium ion batteries. They’re pretty good, but ultimately are heavy and have long charging times for the amount of energy they can store.
According to Elon Musk, battery modules are the main limiting factor in electric vehicle life. In 2019 he said the Tesla Model 3 drive unit is rated for 1 million miles, but the battery isn’t as long lasting.
