PC World reported that IBM has developed a lithium ion battery which can quintuple the electric vehicle’s range from 100 miles to 500 miles and store 1,000 times more energy.

As quoted in the market news:

Unlike the batteries we have used in the past (lead acid, nickel metal hydride, and so on), Li-air batteries don’t use metal to conduct a charge. Instead, the energy flow is created from the air reacting with lithium ions and a carbon matrix. So while you drive, the battery literally breathes in air to produce more energy, which extends the range of a single charge.
