You look down at your battery gauge and see that you are starting to run low on your cross-country trip. You pull your EV into the next charging station, plug in, stretch your legs, and head into the store to buy snacks.
You pick out your snacks, pay the cashier, and head back out to your car. Recharging is finished, so you replace the plug, sit down behind the wheel, and start up. You are confident you have enough charge for another 400 miles now—just in time to stop for lunch.
For Tesla owners who have experienced the gnawing uncertainty of range anxiety on a long trip, the above might sound like science fiction. But for an EV equipped with Xerion’s quick-charging, high-capacity batteries, this story may soon be science fact.
In fact, my little tale does not do justice to the advances made by Xerion—a scrappy, Midwestern start-up chock full of geniuses whose nanotechnology advances offer huge potential for everything from electrification of transportation to reinvigorating American manufacturing to onshoring of critical supply chains.
Xerion’s founders—world leaders in the fields of nanotechnology and materials sciences—have discovered a process that makes the already “pretty good” technology of lithium-ion batteries even better, all while massively cutting the cost and carbon footprint associated with the entire supply chain.
