Meet the Electric Car of Tomorrow
The EV of the future — the one that will make all current models obsolete — is here.
And while I do not have a picture to show you (yet), it’s also largely immaterial what final form this vehicle takes, because the primary differences aren’t going to be evident to the naked eye.
I’m sure the styling will be futuristic and eye-catching and probably revolutionary in its own right, but the outward appearance of this super-vehicle isn’t why this EV is going to lay waste to the likes of Tesla, Toyota, Porsche, VW, and all the other big auto brand names that dominate the market today.
The primary differences are going to be on the inside and will give this future EV some incredible, previously unheard-of performance characteristics.
Let me give you a quick preview of what to expect...
Buy this near-future EV and you can expect to go at least 1,000–1,500 miles between charges. For most people, that will likely mean being able to drive up to a month without having to plug in.
The battery packs themselves will be good for at least 1,000–2,000 charge/discharge cycles, up from about 500 cycles today. That means the total service life of a battery pack will be at least a million miles and likely farther.
That means there's a good chance the car will outlast its owner.
Zero to Fully Charged in 60 Seconds?
Impressed yet? Well, here’s where things get really interesting.
Charge times on these new cars will be upward of 70 times faster than today’s benchmarks.
That’s not a mistake or a typo, or me trying my hand at science fiction.
That’s an actual quote from the makers of the next-generation graphene-cathode battery that will power this car.
Seventy times faster is, as you may have already guessed, completely game-changing when it comes to the EV market.
You see, charge delay stands as the No. 1 barrier to adoption for most prospective EV buyers. It’s also the No. 1 reason that existing EV owners go back to ICE-driven vehicles.
With speeds like this, no more doubt will exist in the minds of potential EV users, as they will be charging their batteries from zero to 100% faster than their internal-combustion counterparts are filling their tanks at the pump.
I know this is already a lot, but it’s not even close to all of the benefits.
These graphene batteries are more reliable, much safer, and much more predictable in terms of performance decline — an issue that’s plagued today’s lithium-ion batteries since their very advent.
Finally, and in many ways, most importantly, these batteries will avoid the numerous supply chain complications associated with sourcing lithium.
Specifically, the makers of this battery will never have to deal with the Chinese Communist Party, which is well on its way to establishing a global monopoly on lithium exploration and mining.
All of this company's graphene is made in-house, using a proprietary production method that allows for the creation of cheap, high-quality graphene using nothing more than natural gas and electricity.
The Australian high-tech materials company behind all this owns the patents to this production method, giving it free rein over the entire life of the product, from creation to distribution.
That’s just one industry-beating aspect of tomorrow’s EV, but there's more where that came from.
Tomorrow’s EV will also be built in a new way, using components that far outclass anything on the road today.
It will start with the electric motor itself.
You may not be aware of this, but despite the fact that the electric motor is by far the most abundant electric device on the planet today (electric motors eat up more than half of all energy produced), its fundamental design has barely changed since it was first invented back in the first half of the 19th century.
You have a coil, a shaft, a casing, and a magnetic field.
Put charge into that coil and it spins. Simple enough, right? Well, this initial design was so simple and so reliable that nobody bothered making any real improvements to it since Michael Faraday built his first prototypes back in the 1820s.

200 Years in the Making
That was until another tech company, based in Calgary, figured out a way to apply modern artificial intelligence to motor design.
The problem was that electric motors, like their gas-driven counterparts, could only achieve maximum torque at a preset rotational speed.
Go faster or slower than this optimal speed and power dropped off, efficiency dropped off, and resistance built.
That resistance also contributed to heating and the eventual breakdown of the mechanism itself.
For a very long time, this was an accepted shortcoming. With everyone essentially using the same motor design, there was simply no competition, and as a result, the technology stagnated.
The Canadian company I just mentioned, however, figured out how to modulate the flow of charge using AI algorithms.
The resulting smart power management system completely changed the game. The flow of electrons could now be precisely managed within the coil, resulting in dramatically increased efficiency across the curve.
More efficiency means more power regardless of rotational rate, along with a commensurate improvement in reliability and service life.
When Engineering Becomes Art
But the work didn’t end there.
The company behind all this took it a step further and integrated multiple systems — the motor, the power management system, and the inverter — into a single unit: an electronic axle.
Today’s EVs keep all of these systems distinct, which contributes to design complexity, weight, and cost.
With this new electronic axle, the next-gen motor, its brains, and all of the mechanical components can be delivered and installed in a single piece.
Now, I know what you may be thinking right now: All of this sounds a bit too good. Lab experiments are fine, but how and when will this make it into the real world?
Well, the Australian company I discussed at the start is already producing its graphene batteries. They’re rolling off the assembly lines as you read this.
Right now the company is in the process of sending its first production units to potential clients for testing.
These Could Be in Your Smartphone by 2025
If all goes as expected, we may see these graphene batteries begin to eat away at the lithium-ion market in the next couple years.
The company that developed the smart motors and electronic axle is also well into the production stage. In fact, its motors are already making their way into smaller consumer products including e-bikes and even electric boats.
More collaborations are piling up, and the EV market is not far off.
Now, here’s the last surprise…
Both of these companies, the battery-maker and the smart motor producer, are already trading publicly on two major North American markets.
The sectors they’re planning to disrupt are two of the fastest-growing areas anywhere in tech today, yet neither of these companies is valued at more than USD$200 million.
Considering the size of some of their competitors and the size of the battery and electric motor markets themselves, a $200 million valuation is less than a drop in the bucket.
The Two Biggest Bargains on the Stock Market?
That makes both of these companies prime targets for buyout by a major auto brand.
Given that it’s already the most valuable carmaker in the world, my money is on Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA), but the price will have to be right.
What could happen in place of a buyout is licensing deals for both companies. This will allow them to grow rapidly and continue developing technologies while staying autonomous and free to operate as they please.
Regardless of how plans unfold, one thing is for certain: These two companies are going to change the face of the EV industry forever in just the next few years.
By the end of the decade, we may well be looking at a miniature industrial revolution spawned by these two new technologies.
As an investor and analyst, I’ve been fascinated by both firms for a while now.
I’ve been writing about them to my premium subscribers for months and have been delighted to see both companies progressing rapidly, gaining new partners, signing new collaboration agreements, and pushing their respective technologies closer and closer to that magical inflection point.

Of course, one problem with ideas this big is that they simply cannot stay secret for long.
While these firms are still relatively unknown and their stocks trade at just tiny fractions of their long-term value, all of that can and will change the moment the mainstream media pick up on the story.
I urge you not to wait for that to happen.
