New Toyota batteries will offer a range of 1,000 km

The development and sale of electric vehicles is on the rise, and with them come certain problems. Currently, the biggest ones are batteries. Thus, Toyota announced that in the next three years it will produce a battery that will enable a range of at least 800 kilometers.

By the end of the decade, Japanese car manufacturers plan to sell 3.5 million electric vehicles globally, of which 1.7 million will be equipped with new batteries. According to the latest information, the offer will include four types of batteries of the new generation, as well as a battery with solid electrolyte technology (solid-state).

Toyota is currently developing a lithium-ion battery, Performance, which will be used from 2026 and will provide a range of over 800 km. It will cost 20% less than the battery currently installed in the leader of electric generation, the Toyota bZ4X. Thanks to the fast charger, the battery will be charged from 10 to 80 percent in about 20 minutes.

The second type of battery that Toyota plans to produce is the lithium-ion phosphate Popularization battery. They will offer a slightly shorter range (about 600 km) and will arrive between 2026 and 2027. The production of this type of battery will cost 40% less compared to the battery in the bZ4x model. It will charge up to 80 percent in about 30 minutes.

From 2027, a high-performance lithium-ion battery will be added to the offer, which will enable a range of over 1,000 kilometers. Also, Toyota is working on solid-state batteries that would also allow a range of 1,000 kilometers, and would be charged to 80 percent in just 10 minutes.
