If we can marry Tesla's abilities and ambitions with new Lithium batteries for Electric Cars from Envia Systems we can have the US based mass market production base for the Electric Cars.
"Tesla Model S will bring Electric Cars into the headlines again. Responsible Luxury, High-End performance and Electric Car - it is all represented by Tesla Model S now. The next step will be the real Electric Cars for the mass market. Volume will bring down the cost of the lithium batteries, battery leasing schemes will reduce the entry cost of Electric Car ownership and then we can never look back on the 19th century technology of controlled explosions under the hood burning Oil."
Range 300 miles with Envia
One of the main barriers to mass EV adoption is range anxiety. Most electric vehicles have an 80-100 mile range. The key factor in determining the vehicle’s electric range is the energy density of the battery. Current technologies max out at 180 Wh/kg. Envia’s technology enables a 2-3X improvement in vehicle range compared to other Lithium cell chemistries.
