IBM today announced two partners for a project aimed at building a lithium air battery able to propel an electric car 500 miles. Scientists from Asahi Kasei and Central Glass with expertise in membranes and electrolyte chemistries will join IBM researchers on the initiative.
A 500 mile electric vehicle battery would be disruptive technology and could change everything. Battery range has been an issue with EVs since they were invented in 1890. Maybe IBM and their partners can change this. Let’s hope so.
