Toyota reportedly set to release fast-charging, long-range electric cars by 2022

Toyota EVs With Long Range Solid-State Batteries Due 2022

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.

Being able to consistently manufacture a solid-state battery for use in electric vehicles would give Toyota an edge over rivals like Nissan, Tesla, and Daimler, assuming those companies aren't also able to bring battery advances to their cars in the next five years.

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 thinks the biggest of these hurdles is the current battery technology, and it intends to change that. That eliminates the risk of fire and explosion associated with current battery technology.

He told the Italian media: 'I'm proud to wear this shirt, I've bought into an important project here and I'm happy to be here. Conte said after the win: "Pedro went to the hospital and for sure he should be OK but I think he had concussion".

Solid-state batteries use solid electrolytes rather than liquid ones, making them safer than lithium-ion batteries now on the market. This gives it both a lower chance of overheating and a higher energy density, which should theoretically allow a vehicle to travel much greater distances before needing to be recharged.

Nissan will unveil push-button automatic-parking on the second-generation Leaf electric auto as a new upgrade to its ProPilot autonomous driving system.The feature will allow the Leaf to self-park in. But before solid-state gets here, Toyota still plans to dive into the world of EVs with lithium-ion-powered cars.
