Dual-Chemistry Battery. Connected by a special converter, two batteries team up to give you over 600 miles on just one charge.
Our Next Energy Inc. (ONE), a Michigan-based energy storage tech company, shares that the Gemini dual-chemistry battery achieved an impressive 608.1 miles in a BMW iX using a single charge.
This milestone was confirmed through the WLTP test cycle, the European benchmark for determining the range of fully electric vehicles.
Gemini’s unique design includes two different cell types with distinct chemistries. Lithium iron phosphate (LFP) cells, responsible for the motor, cover 99% of daily trips with a 150-mile range. To extend your journey on longer road trips, Gemini utilizes high energy density anode-free cells. These provide an extra 450 miles by transferring power through ONE’s efficient DC-to-DC converter.
Mujeeb Ijaz, CEO & founder of ONE, said:
“Electric vehicles will achieve mass adoption when they offer enough range that people will feel comfortable having an EV as their only vehicle. The Gemini battery has proven it can double the range of EVs and break down the biggest barrier to electrification.”
Jürgen Hildinger, BMW Group New Technologies Head of High Voltage Storage, said:
“The 600+ miles achieved by the BMW iX equipped with Gemini is an impressive demonstration. We enjoy working with the team at ONE and look forward to take the next steps together.”
