    Mercedes-Benz and Sila partnership develops higher density electric vehicle (EV) battery technology to increase range

    Mercedes-Benz has announced that it will work with Sila, a next-generation battery materials company, to incorporate Sila’s silicon anode chemistry in batteries which are optionally available for the first time in the upcoming electric Mercedes-Benz G-Class. The innovative high-silicon anode material will increase the energy density of batteries without compromising safety or performance. Sila’s technology enables a 20-40 percent increase in energy density compared to today’s commercially available cells with a comparable format, reaching more than 800Wh/l at cell level.  This enables Mercedes-Benz to store more energy in the same space, therefore, increasing the range of its future electric vehicles (EVs)...
