While most electric cars already travel further per charge than most people need them to on a daily basis, there's still a massive hunt to find the longest-range, cheapest, longest-life battery pack possible for future generations of EVs.
We've known for a while that solid-state technology is likely to play a massive part in next-generation electric cars - but exactly what the make up of those solid-state batteries will be is still unknown.
Earlier today though, Samsung announced a new battery breakthrough that it says will make it possible to build a solid-state battery pack capable of more than 800-miles per charge while halving the physical battery size compared to today's battery packs.
