Swiss startup says it has invented a lithium-ion electric car battery that can run for 600 miles on a single charge

A startup says it will release a lithium-ion battery capable of powering an electric vehicle for up to 600 miles, effectively shattering the ceiling of its competitors. Only time will tell, however, if the company can deliver on its promises, as Innolith said it may take another three to five years to launch the battery. The Swiss startup says it has patents pending for the 1,000 Wh/kg (Watt-hours per kilogram) battery. At that rate, it nearly triples the endurance of the Panasonic produced battery currently used by the Tesla 3. Elon Musk's electric vehicle technology gives drivers about 300 miles on one charge. Innolith's battery is also capable of packing an even bigger punch than a battery being developed the U.S. Department of Energy, which is targeted for 500 Wh/kg. (Source: Daily Mail)
