Mujeeb Ijaz’s pioneering work focuses on optimizing lithium-iron-phosphate (LFP) batteries, renowned for their stability, to achieve extended electric vehicle ranges. The breakthrough was recently exemplified when a Tesla Model S covered an impressive 752 miles on a single charge, signaling a promising shift in sustainable transportation. The strategic investment comes as ONE secures its first customer, an EV startup specializing in medium-duty delivery trucks, with production set to commence later this year.
