TOKYO -- China's Envision AESC Group will start mass producing in 2024 batteries that will give an electric vehicle a driving range of at least 1,000 kilometers, Nikkei has learned.

Envision will double the number of battery cells in each car, which will make the vehicles heavier but the upside will be the increased driving range. It is also hoping to increase production capacity by 10 times the current level by the end of this decade.
