When we talk about electric vehicles the discussion normally turns to range (and it should). How far can you go on a charge? A company here in Novi (Our Next Energy – or ONE) fit a Tesla with their new Gemini battery and drove from Detroit over the Mackinac Bridge AND back on one charge (over 700 miles). Game changer? You decide – there are still bigger discussions about charging time and availability, but this tech is pretty impressive.

To some, even a Tesla Model S doesn't have enough range, even though versions of it now top 400 miles on a charge.
