New Celica with Solid State Batteries
The long-awaited Celica sports car from Toyota. SSB technology reduces weight, no hydrogen gas to catch fire and they are more compact. Toyota doing what they do best leading-edge innovation and engineering brilliance.
SSB’s recharge to full in 15 minutes flat - 5 minutes charge will get you home, 10 minutes will get you 80% - and all from existing technology.
SSB’s are also 2 x lighter thanks to having no fluids - meaning that a design can double range again for the volume used on existing electric cars, at a stroke.
This also has another impact - current electric vehicles are monstrously overpowered, mainly to shift around the heft of that super-heavy battery pack. With SSB’s, cars can go light
SSB’s last 10 x longer, and have handily broken the limit of charging to over 250k cycles (discharge/recharge), which current batteries simply cannot match !
SSB’s also are more temperature insensitive - that is, they retain their charge at low and high temperatures. Liquid batteries lose charge in the cold and lose charge over time. SSB’s do this by one less order of magnitude - that is, 10x less - making them the solution to the flexibility problem.
