Toyota plans to use solid-state batteries to enable longer-range EVs with fast-charging

Toyota Plans To Change The EV Game By 2022 - Isn't Tesla Too Far Already?

The new car's long range (a specific number wasn't quoted in either report) and remarkably quick charging time will reportedly be achieved by using solid-state batteries.

Toyota has made a decision to sell the new model in Japan as early as 2022, the paper said.

Now, another Japanese newspaper, the Chunichi Shimbun (via Reuters), is reporting that Toyota is developing solid-state batteries for its electric cars and aims to have the first on sale in early 2022.

Volkswagen's electrification strategy is rolling ahead, with the automaker on course to develop and bring to market a variety of EVs in different segments starting in 2020.

Toyota is currently the largest auto manufacturer on the planet, but until now, it hasn't shown much interest in developing electric vehicles. So far, Toyota has declined to comment on the report. How quickly the new EVs will catch on would also depend largely on battery costs.

Branden Grace Makes History With a 62 at the British Open
In literally hundreds of thousands of rounds major golf, this is the first time a 62 has been written in a scorecard. On the par-5 17th, Grace found the green in two and two-putted for his eighth birdie of the round.

Solid-state batteries use solid electrolytes, as opposed to the liquid ones used in lithium-ion batteries, making them safer.

Most of the current lithium-ion batteries need at least 20 to 30 minutes to recharge to a certain charge level and offer range of up to 400 kilometres.

In the past Toyota hasn't been very supportive of fully electric vehicles and instead chose to push its energy towards fuel cell vehicles, like the Mirai.

The automaker plans to start mass production of electric vehicles in China by 2019.
