The global push for sustainable transportation has spurred significant advancements in electric vehicle (EV) technology. Battery range has remained a focal point among the key challenges facing widespread EV adoption.

While current EVs typically offer a range of around 435 miles (700 kilometers) on a single charge, researchers have been diligently working towards a significant milestone: achieving a 1,000-kilometer (approximately 621 miles) battery range.

A team of researchers from the Department of Chemistry at Pohang University of Science and Technology (POSTECH) in South Korea is leading the charge in addressing this challenge. The team, led by Professor Soojin Park and PhD candidate Minjun Je and Dr. Hye Bin Son, has made substantial strides in enhancing the energy density of lithium-ion batteries using silicon-based materials.

I still wouldn't buy one.
