Toyota’s Fast-Charging Electric Car Revolution Begins

Remember when the Toyota Prius was so far ahead of its time, other automakers literally couldn’t even explain how its hybrid engine worked? Today, just about every big auto brand has its version of a hybrid car or pure EV. Lest we forget, however, Toyota paved the way for those eco-friendly vehicles to become popular—the saying “what have you done for me lately?” comes to mind—and they may be on the verge of another breakthrough with their solid-state batteries.

Charging Station

What are “Solid-State” Batteries?

Currently in development at Toyota’s Japanese labs, these solid-state batteries are said to charge within minutes, surpassing other lithium-ion car batteries by leaps and bounds, and then lapping them for another go-round. In addition to a lift in charge time, solid-state technology, in the most theoretical sense, could potentially boost battery performance, fuel efficiency, and overall lifespan—you know, all the categories that make an electric car so good—which may allow Toyota to produce the first practical, long-range autonomous car.

Déjà vu, huh?

The question everyone is asking: Are all-solid car batteries too good to be true? Time will tell, friends, as Toyota is reportedly aiming for a 2022 release of whatever model will be housing these electric power packs.
