  • Toyota EVs With Long Range Solid-State Batteries Due 2022

Electric cars have made resounding progress in recent years, but they have yet to break into the mainstream market. No one wants their vehicle to run out of juice far from a charging station, and then to wait half an hour for it to charge back up.

Toyota is working on an electric auto powered by "solid state" battery technology that can drastically improve driving range and shorten recharging times, according to a report in Japan.

A new type of battery being developed by Toyota might just be the solution to those problems. Toyota thinks the biggest of these hurdles is the current battery technology, and it intends to change that.

Although Toyota spokeswoman Kayo Doi said the company would not comment on specific product plans, she did say the company aims to commercialize all-solid-state batteries by the early 2020s.

Solid-state batteries use solid electrolytes, as opposed to the liquid ones used in lithium-ion batteries, making them safer. Solid-state batteries could soon show up in several new EVs, since the batteries have greater energy density and faster charging times.

Batteries remain a key limiting factor for electric vehicle design, because of how far tech companies focused on the problem have pushed existing science.

Solid-state batteries appear to be the answer.

Toyota's new electric vehicle, to be built on an all-new platform, will use all-solid-state batteries, allowing it to be recharged in just a few minutes, the newspaper said, without citing sources.
