This is an order of magnitude longer than the battery life currently in use.

General Motors (GM), Executive Vice President of Doug Parks, speaking at an online conference for investors, said that she had “almost ready” a battery for electric cars with a life expectancy of one million miles, or 1.6 million km In addition, the automaker is working on next-generation batteries, even more advanced than the Ultium battery introduced in March.

Currently, electric vehicle batteries typically serve 150,000 – 300,000 km.

Parks did not specify the time for the release of the battery, but said that “several teams” at GM work in such areas as cobalt-free electrodes, solid-state electrolytes, and ultra-fast charging.

Earlier it became known that Tesla in cooperation with the Chinese manufacturer of batteries CATL plans to introduce its own battery, providing mileage of 1.6 million km, at the end of this year or early next.
