Toyota is without doubt the biggest automobile manufacturer in the world. Many love to buy this Japanese automobile brand as not only are they affordably priced, but they are also very much reliable and will last many years. Because of this, Toyota holds the most sales in automotive vehicles with over 10 million sold around the world in 2022 alone. The only problem though is that even though they hold the highest number of vehicle sales, they get beat by Tesla in terms of overall profit even though the EV carmaker only sells a fraction of that.
The truth is that there are many countries who are mandating the reduction of internal combustion engines in the coming years and transition to electric vehicles. Although Toyota has always been reluctant to join the bandwagon as other carmakers have, it seems that they did not let down on research as they seem to be coming up with a battery technology that will help achieve 1000 kilometers or 621 miles on a single charge.
Toyota claims that the 1000 km range is achievable through the integration of sonic technology along with the next-generation of batteries. In fact, they plan to launch a range of such EV vehicles by 2026. Currently it offers a BZ4X SUV which has a range of 270 miles, much lower than the 350-mile range that the competitions offer. However, with the new technology, Toyota boldly claims that it can change the future of cars.
According to Toyota, the next generation of lithium-ion batteries will not only have better range, but they can also charge much faster. However, since the mass production of such batteries is still currently expensive, they will most likely be reserved for the higher end vehicles. Nevertheless, this technology will likely trickle down to the middle and lower end vehicles, allowing buyers to acquire vehicles with half that range.
