Toyota EVs will have innovative batteries by 2025July 28, 2020
These are solid state batteries. This design has a number of undeniable advantages, however, in order to extend its life cycle, it is necessary to solve some problems.
Toyota shared its interim work to develop new batteries for electric cars. Toyota is working towards creating high-efficiency solid-state batteries – their undeniable advantages are a long range for the same size. One such copy was installed on a prototype that was supposed to be presented at the Tokyo Olympics.
However, this type of battery has one significant drawback – a short life cycle compared to batteries that are used now. Therefore, there is still a lot of work to be done. Toyota said it is looking for a solution in close collaboration with Panasonic and hopes to have serial production by 2025. Another advantage is the ability to quickly charge solid-state batteries, which will become a very important factor after electric cars become truly mainstream.
Meanwhile, Toyota is one of the world leaders in the field of hybrid and hydrogen vehicles and is mainly focused on developing this direction.
However, if the problem with the short life cycle of solid-state batteries can be solved, then it is worth waiting for the massive appearance of all-electric Toyota cars on the market.
Meanwhile, the new Toyota Corolla Cross crossover has reached the brand’s dealers. The car received a platform from the latest generation Corolla sedan, but received additional options and a new multimedia system.
