A Swiss Company May Have Developed a 621-Mile Range Battery Pack

Date: Apr 09, 2019

In the world of electric mobility, the one with the most range is king. With electric cars, the horsepower war is over and the range war has begun. Car companies are constantly fighting to increase their pure EV range by even just a few miles so they can have more than the next company on paper. Even with all of that competition, it’s still rare to see brands crest the 300-mile mark. However, what if a brand was able to develop a battery pack with a range of 621 miles?

That’s exactly what the Swiss company Innolith AG claims to have developed.

According to Innolith, it’s created the world’s first 1,000 Wh/kg (watt-hours per kilogram) battery pack and it’s said to be capable of 1,000 km (621 miles). If true, that would more than double the next furthest electric range.

This super high-range battery is also said to be made with “non-flammable, inorganic electrolyte”, rather than the organic flammable stuff currently used in most batteries. It’s also said to be made without any precious rare earth materials, so it’s supposed to be quite a lot cheaper to make.
