Toyota’s Next-Gen LiO2 Battery Five Times Better Than Li-Ion

Nickel-metal hydride [NiMH] and lithium-ion [Li-ion] batteries have their advantages, but Toyota’s next-generation solid state and LiO2 battery technology could be set to overtake them.

Toyota doesn’t really have much of a penchant for Li-ion battery technology, instead trusting its NiMH battery technology developed in-house.

True, the Toyota RAV4 EV uses Li-ion, but the entire drive system was developed by Tesla Motors. The Toyota Prius Plug-In, to date, is the only other model to use sourced Li-ion battery technology.

Li-ion is more energy-dense than NiMH, but Toyota has been developing their own NiMH replacement, and the next-generation solid state and lithium-air [LiO2] battery technology being developed by Toyota looks to take Toyota further than all the others.
