If that actually works out, it's potentially a genuine game-changer.
That's the beauty of competition.For me this will be the best move from Tesla, getting all the others to offer more for less with their BEV’s.
just like you dont have 2000km single tank of gas cars, you will not have 2000km batteries... they will use it to lower the size of the battery, make cars cheaper and still have 600km range.Because 2000 km/1200 miles on a single charge is a crazy amount of range. That's very competitive with gas cars, assuming the charge rate isn't terrible.
Li-S is one of the many solid state solutions under development. We don't know which route each company is going for. All SSB chemistries have their own pros and cons, so we should see a real world sample first before making any judgement based on manufacturer's claims.Interesting. I think 600 km between charging is mighty plenty. Toyota also going lithium sulfur route, correct?
The dream that lithium batteries could one day power Electric Vehicles (EV) to travel more than 2,000 km on a single charge is set to become reality, thanks to scientist team of Brighsun New Energy.au.finance.yahoo.com
Literally nobody on earth cares about making a vehicle for you.Long range (+1000 km) is important to me. Even ICEVs have low range because they have small tanks.
Go buy a Tesla. Make sure you splurge on the full self driving.I am pretty certain that my next car will be an electric or cleaner alternative versions to gas/diesel. However, it seems only Tesla is pushing the boundaries of maximum range, with the news Tesla Roadster earmarked with a ranged of 1,000 KM, c. 600 miles. I am huge fan of Lexus but if they can't compete in electric cars then I am afraid I'll no longer be their customer. Tesla of course, has other issues that more reasoned manufactures have managed better (interior and exterior quality, reliability, etc) but they seem to be catching up on this while offering really great electric engines.
Hopefully Lexus Electrified can catch up because in the infotaintment alone, they are just really behind not just Tesla but MB, BMW and Audi.
I think latest on something production ready for SSB is 2025. So I would not count on it just yet.Good to know that Toyota may introduce these SSB's, maybe even in late 2022 for that single Lexus BEV. Some of these Tesla fan boys / cultist were bashing me that we won't see anything by 2025 but even VAG says it may be ready to commercialize its SSB by 2025.
I am quite fine with 400 winter kilometers between charging and even below 300 HP will do for me. I'm not a Speedy Gonzales anyway.
I just want this newer solid electrolyte / solid state battery + three motors for electric rear wheel torque vectoring to future-proof this big purchase. I hope I am being a realist.
there wont be a +1000km EV vehicle... it makes no sense, solves no issue. When they develop such battery, they will still make it 600km-700km range so it weights and costs less.Long range (+1000 km) is important to me. Even ICEVs have low range because they have small tanks.
