ONE battery prototype achieves more than 1.200 kilometers-battery

Short ranges are still a key argument for many e-mobility skeptics. Even e-drivers are often annoyed by the significantly lower ranges in winter. If the US start-up ONE has its way, such annoyances will soon be a thing of the past. Its newly developed battery doubles the battery capacity on the same installation space and leaves a Tesla prototype 200 km.

ONE founder and CEO Mujeeb Ijaz knows what he’s talking about. He led development teams for automotive battery systems at US battery manufacturer A123 Systems and learned digitization at Apple. Two years ago he founded Our Next Energy (ONE) in Michigan. A battery developed by ONE has now been tested in a Tesla Model S for the first time. The original battery of the Model S had a capacity of 103.9 kilowatt hours, the ONE battery achieved 207.3 kilowatt hours in the same space. The tests were conducted in late December in cool winter temperatures at an average speed of 55 miles per hour (89 km/h). Despite 331 kilograms more weight, the consumption is comparable to the original battery (in the test about 17 kWh/100 km).

Critics of e-batteries With regard to the sustainability of the materials used, IJAZ keeps a bit opposed: the one battery should do without nickel and cobalt and still enable a high range through a high energy density. “We want to reinvent both battery chemistry and cell architecture,” explains Ijaz. Production is scheduled to take place in North America, beginning in late 2023. It is not known whether there is already a concrete interest on the part of the car manufacturer.

Other manufacturers are also working on the range: Mercedes-Benz is currently ahead of Tesla with a range of 780 kilometers with the EQS range leader. The American company Lucid Air will cover 837 km with its debut Air, which will be available from 2022. Several start-ups are also well above 1 for the next 1-2 years.000 kilometers in one go. Good news, especially for frequent drivers and camping enthusiasts.

  1. 331kg more. There’s not much payload left.

    Does the prototype meet the crash requirements or was space saved by omitting important structures?

    Otherwise, such battery levels for 90% of motorists are oversized.


  2. We are still at the start of development for batteries. The range discussion was and is abnormal and completely out of place. While combustion engines have a miserable degree of efficiency and should rather be described as mobile heaters, there is still a lot to be said for electric cars. The energy density will be significantly increased and the charging speeds, which are so incredibly important for many, will be reduced to the level of the combustion engine. The development is exciting and still full of positive surprises. It’s a pity that combustion engines are still rolling off the assembly line.

  3. I’m curious how long these unnecessary ranges Sch …compare will continue.

    In my opinion, absolute range will become less and less relevant in the future.

    Maximum ranges between 400 and 500km should also be sufficient for the 1-2 holidays per year – sometimes would have to work on his mindset for this purpose.

    For those with the 1000km “bubble capacity” the niche market will then surely provide a vehicle at the appropriate price 🙂

    – everyone else is looking forward to increasingly cheaper vehicles with increasing energy densities and falling prices.

    Time will tell

  4. I hope the company establishes itself. I’m just imagining that in a few years there will be an exchangeable battery for our Mazda MX30, which will suddenly have double the range … wow.

  5. But it’s nice to know that you could install a 100kw/h battery with half the installation space, which might then. weighs less, would have better efficiency and you still have approx. 600 km far. It’s progressing !

  6. The how-many wonder battery that doesn’t come then, that’s it? “We want to reinvent both battery chemistry and cell architecture”. Have the newly invented, or do you want?

  7. What actually speaks against large batteries, or rather against large capacity?
    Just because the development is not that far, there may be more powerful batteries in the future, which may need to be replaced. ensure high ranges.
    This relieves the charging stations because less has to be charged.
    Protects the batteries because they are charged to 100% much less often.
    Especially those who drive a lot or do short distances in winter appreciate a large battery because it doesn’t have to be charged as often.
    I don’t want to constantly worry about the next charging option, which starts to give me a clammy feeling with a remaining range of less than 100 km. A small range would be a no-go for me personally, as it is not suitable for everyday use.
    Especially when the charging infrastructure in some regions has improvement potentials and you are not sure if it works with shop at all, then the question comes to a larger battery.
    The development is just beginning and will certainly develop suitable batteries that are on a par with a petrol supply.

  8. The battery capacity in particular also means resource consumption, regardless of whether there will be improvements in batteries in the future due to more commonly available materials, because demand is increasing sharply worldwide.

    The subsidy should also be adjusted in this direction, i.e. not only lower the car purchase price, but also limit the battery capacity, so that buyers with huge batteries no longer get any subsidy – they can buy these vehicles, yes, but no longer with tax money.

    In return, at least the L7e vehicles (faster than 45 km/h) could be included in the funding and possibly. also the L6e vehicles (45 km/h), which are fast enough in increased 30 km/h zones.

  9. Surely it is possible to pack cells tighter than Tesla.
    The question is how it looks with the thermal stress and thus with the durability.

    The battery has twice the capacity, model s will be able to drive a maximum of twice as far as before.
    This battery would be interesting only for people who want to drive long really fast. Or draw for the model X to the trailer.

    Problematic I see the price. A model S battery in exchange costs 22.000 €. This battery is not below 5-60.To have 000. For a used s too much.
    (Edit: plus reinforced suspension and possibly. greater brakes!)

  10. And daily the marmot greet. I never counted how many superakkus almost a week in the media. There are many many.

    Just can see it from it to date zero. Not even Tesla has actually installed his super battery.

    Prototypes that are supposedly to stand just before serial maturity is available.
    It remains exciting!

  11. With the stated range, the top speed is 89 km/h. Typical for USA etc.
    Who drives like that on German roads? We have a lot of intersections with traffic lights or stop roads
    Constantly stopping and starting costs a lot of battery. In the rest of Europe there are almost only roundabouts and max.100 km/h on the cities a lot of 30s and roundabouts .I’m on vacation with Tesla s70d from Berlin to France along canal and Atlantic coast and back 5400kmh with average 18kwh/100km. Mostly country roads. In Germany, consumption would be at least.20% higher because you drive faster. There have already been tests with Tesla with a speed of 50 or 80 km/h and a large range m.w. but not with 100kwh batteries.
