The Biggest Hidden Danger Of Electric Vehicles Is About To Be Solved. Will You Choose Electric Cars?

- Nov 22, 2019-

Although the wave of new energy vehicles is in full swing, Toyota's electrification process is still slower than other automakers, but there are some indications that Toyota is also trying to catch up with the trend of electric vehicles.


Toyota recently announced that it will introduce more electric car models and announce the emergence of a battery technology that can change the electric car market.

The technology that can change the current electric vehicle market is only the option of solid-state battery technology, which is a battery that uses solid electrodes and solid electrolyte. Since the solid battery has a relatively high power weight, it is an ideal battery for electric vehicles.


As a new technology, the energy density of solid-state batteries can reach many times that of traditional plasma batteries, which not only can greatly increase the battery life of electric vehicles, but also solve the safety problems of current electric vehicle batteries, and can largely prevent the occurrence of spontaneous combustion accidents.

Toyota recently extended its goal of selling 5.5 million electric vehicles from 2025 to 2030. Toyota's definition of "electrification" includes battery electric vehicles, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles and hybrid vehicles.


The key to achieving this goal is solid-state battery technology. At present, due to technological advances, Toyota believes that solid-state batteries can be realized as soon as 2020, two years earlier than originally planned.


A Toyota spokesperson said in a recent speech on the Toyota Electrification Program that he hopes to showcase solid-state battery technology to consumers at the Tokyo Olympics next year.

Because solid-state batteries use solid electrolytes rather than liquid electrolytes in lithium-ion batteries, they are named.


Proponents of solid-state batteries claim they will provide higher energy density, which means that in an equal space, solid-state batteries can provide more energy for electric vehicles, and solid electrolytes are also considered non-flammable, which can avoid now Plasma batteries have a large number of spontaneous combustion accidents due to flammability.


In January of this year, Toyota announced that it will jointly produce batteries with Panasonic (currently supplying batteries to Tesla), including solid-state batteries. Toyota is also working with Subaru to develop a new platform for electric vehicles.


This is a big change for Toyota. Before that, they did not have much enthusiasm for the electric vehicle market. They seem to want to maintain their own market with their rich experience in hybrid vehicles. Developing the electric vehicle market is a major change.


In the future, to meet the zero-emission vehicle requirements of some markets, Fengtai Oz has designed two generations of RAV4 electric vehicles, but the company has been supporting hydrogen fuel cells as a substitute for traditional batteries.

From Toyota's electric car production program to Mirai cars to fuel cell trucks and buses. However, due to the slow development of hydrogen infrastructure and facing increasingly fierce market competition, Toyota has chosen another attempt to battery technology for electric vehicles, and it seems to have improved slightly.


Toyota is not the only car manufacturer to research solid-state batteries. Volkswagen and BMW have invested in related solid-state battery research companies and have produced some test products, but like most new technologies, test results are converted into Commercial production still needs some distance.
