Sekisui Chemical says it is on track to manufacture material that will allow production of thin, cheap, long-range batteries for electric cars by 2015.

The company announced Tuesday that the new silicon-based material for use in lithium ion batteries could result in batteries that deliver a driving range of about 370 miles — roughly equivalent to how far a typical car can go on a full tank of gas but at a much lower cost.

As a point of comparison, Tesla’s Model S with the largest capacity battery delivers about 300 miles driving at a speed of 55 mph.
