Envia batteries

Postby jstack6 » Mon Aug 20, 2012 3:22 pm

The new Envia 400 wh/kg lithium batteries are big news. It could drop the cost of any range EV by quite a bit. Or it could make a 100 mile rnge EV into a 200 mile range EV.
Which do you think would be better, a lower cost 100 mile range EV ?

or 200 mile range EV at about the same price as todays 100 mile range EV?

Envia's Energy-Dense Battery Could Cut Electric Vehicle Costs
“Battery progress has been about five percent [a year] in energy density. That is just not going to get us to electric vehicles anytime soon. They will [remain] too expensive,” said Dr. Dane Boysen, BEEST’s Program Director. “BEEST was set up to hit a really aggressive 400 wh/kg metric at the high discharge rate needed for electric vehicles… Envia hit the metric, at least for energy density, which is significant. It is double the current commercial battery. That is awesome.”
