The new battery can power an electric car up to 100 miles, but their goal is to reach 200 miles between charges. "I think we’ve got better than a 50-50 chance to develop a car that will go to 200 miles on a charge," [GM CEO Dan] Akerson said. "That would be a game changer."

Their new lithium-ion batteries would also be substantially less expensive than existing electric car batteries.
