Toyota plans solid-state EVs - Faster charging, longer range
According to the a Japanese report Toyota is all set to launch long-range EV in 2022 with a cutting edge technology.
The technology in use will Ultrafast-Charging Solid-State EV Batteries with twice the range of today’s EV's. Solid electrolyte could make electric cars lighter, battery smaller.
Toyota's new electric car, to be built on an all-new platform, will use all-solid-state batteries, allowing it to be recharged in just a few minutes.
By contrast, current electric vehicles (EVs), which use lithium-ion batteries, need 20-30 minutes to recharge even with fast chargers and typically have a range of just 300-400 kilometers (185-250 miles)
Higher powered lithium-ion batteries can get sometimes way too hot, or the occasional electric vehicle fire can attest.
In past Toyota was reluctant in pursing the EV path, but with now it seems they are serious enough and will challenge Tesla, thanks to the Chinese govt. policy mandating EV's in the future(2019).
The EV will debut in Japan in 2022 in a car built on a all new platform.
