Toyota's lithium battery technology breakthrough-Lithium - Ion Battery Equipment

Toyota made a major breakthrough in lithium battery technology -Lithium - Ion Battery Equipment

According to the report of the automobile news website Electrek, Toyota Motor Corporation announced last week that it has made a major technological breakthrough in the research and development of lithium-ion battery technology. Not only has the service life of the lithium-ion battery been extended, but the range of electric vehicles can also be increased by 15%.

According to reports, Toyota said that the breakthrough in lithium-ion battery technology will increase the range of electric vehicles by at least 15%. In the past two decades, the performance of lithium-ion batteries has increased by 5% to 8% annually, so the battery performance improvement announced by Toyota may not be so exciting. But Toyota's new findings are significant.(Lithium - Ion Battery Equipment)

It is reported that Toyota Motor Company's new breakthrough is to be able to observe the changes in the electrolyte of lithium-ion batteries during charging and discharging. Toyota believes that by observing battery cells in this way, the company can improve battery capacity.

Toyota said: through this method, Toyota can observe the real-time errors of lithium ion batteries and obtain the reasons for the decline of lithium ion battery performance. Toyota believes that new technological breakthroughs can provide new fundamental criteria for battery research and development, which can improve the performance and durability of batteries. It can not only extend the life of batteries, but also extend the range of plug-in hybrid vehicles and electric vehicles.

Hisao Yamashige, a Toyota battery technology researcher, told the media: "Lithium ion batteries will be the key technology in the electrification of cars. Therefore, we have a clear need to continue to improve this technology and improve the performance of lithium ion batteries."

Before that, Toyota had announced that the company had set up an internal electric vehicle research team. However, Toyota confirmed that the research team currently has only four engineers. The goal of this team is to produce a long range electric vehicle for the company by 2025.

In addition, all kinds of signs also show that Toyota vehicles are gradually away from hydrogen fuel cell technology. In order to promote hydrogen fuel cell technology, Toyota must build a complete ecosystem, including hydrogen production, storage, transportation and injection, which must be planned in advance. Moreover, the hydrogen fuel cell has a fatal problem. It cannot be recharged because it needs to be filled with hydrogen. Faced with all kinds of adverse situations, hydrogen fuel cell technology may be difficult to achieve results in the near future. Therefore, Toyota Motor Company is currently investing more and more in lithium battery powered electric vehicles.
