Toyota's New Fast-Charging Long-Range Electric Car May Be Out By 2022

Grille- 2016 Toyota Prius 5dr HB Three Touring

Quoting the newspaper, Automotive News says the battery will be used in an all-electric vehicle that will be based on a new platform and will arrive in the beginning of the next decade, most likely in 2022.

Toyota is working on developing an electric vehicle with a fast charging battery, the Chunichi Shimbun reported on Tuesday. Electric vehicles now use lithium-ion batteries, so it will be interesting to see if Toyota manages to push all-solid-state batteries to mainstream production.

Current EVs use "liquid" lithium-ion batteries, but Toyota, along with a number of startups and suppliers such as Bosch, has been investing in solid-state battery tech that replaces liquid acid electrolytes with solid materials that are less prone to short-circuiting, catching fire or degrading over time, among other desirable properties. The paper says that the auto maker is working on all-solid-state batteries, a recently developed technology that uses solid electrolytes rather than liquid ones, enabling a higher volumetric energy density than more conventional lithium-ion batteries.




Existing electric cars rely on lithium-ion batteries which need up to 30 minutes to recharge even with faster charging systems in place.

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

A Toyota spokesperson told Reuters the company is aiming to commercialize the new batteries by the early 2020s. How quickly the new EVs will catch on would also depend largely on battery costs. 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. So far, Toyota has declined to comment on the report.
