GM’s New Battery Research Center Could Extend EV Range to 600 Miles

Brad Bergan of Interesting Engineering reports that GM’s new battery research center could extend EV range to 600 miles.

The C3 Take
  • General Motors is constructing a new battery research center in Michigan and plans to build a battery with a range of 600 miles.
  • The Tesla Model S is the current range leader for EVs, coming in with a range of 373 miles.
  • Time will tell how successful GM’s efforts will be, but it is clear that innovation, not regulation, is key to advancing clean technologies.

“‘With these high-energy-density, low-cost vehicles, we really think we can have a better package that’s less mass, better for the vehicle, better for the customer, and it can be the reality as quickly as we can through the Wallace Innovation Center,’ exlpained Morris in the report. GM’s first-gen Ultium batteries will show up in the Hummer EV, which should enter production next year.”
