I don’t think it’s too much of a stretch to suggest that the western world has bet its automotive future on a technology that does not really exist.

It’s like a movie where the fate of the world rests on finding the answer to a riddle.

Lithium Ion is an amazing technology but arguably it asks too much of the planet, and there’s simply not enough material to make as many batteries as we’re going to need. Which makes developments in new battery technology so important.

News from Toyota about Solid State batteries from 2021 is therefore very exciting

I’m sure there’s more twists to come in this movie plot, but maybe we’re not all doomed after all. Yay.

Kudos to Toyota and all engineers globally working towards a better future.
