The FootPrint Coalition is reporting on battery technology. 

Toyota's recent announcement about bringing solid-state batteries to the market by 2027 has generated significant excitement in the electric vehicle (EV) industry. Solid-state batteries, an alternative to the current liquid lithium-ion batteries used in EVs, promise several advantages, such as faster charging without overheating, smaller size without compromising range, and alleviating consumer concerns like range anxiety and lengthy charging times. Toyota's solid-state battery could potentially offer an EV range of up to 1,200km (752 miles) and charge in 10 minutes or less, exceeding current EV capabilities. Despite the challenges of scaling up this technology, which has been a goal for the auto industry for some time, Toyota's advancement could be a game-changer. The company plans to deliver 1.5 million EVs by 2026 and may incorporate these new batteries into their vehicles by 2027. This development is part of Toyota's broader strategy to catch up in the EV market and meet its climate commitments, which also includes exploring biofuels and hydrogen-based solutions. Toyota's move could potentially reshape the EV landscape and challenge other major players like BMW and Nissan, who are also working on solid-state battery technology.
