Toyota wants sustainable mobility for all, with high-performance solid-state batteries and innovative strategies for competitive electric vehicles
Toyota reveals ambitious plans for battery technology and electric vehicle (EV) innovation. The Japanese automaker is committed to introducing high-performance solid-state batteries and other technologies to improve the range, performance and reduce costs of its electric vehicles. Starting in 2026, Toyota will launch next-generation batteries, aiming to win over consumers with vehicles that offer longer range and faster charging times.
The goal is to provide an uncompromising driving experience for electric vehicle users. The automaker has announced it is producing an electric vehicle with a more efficient lithium-ion battery that will have a range of 1,000km , thus outperforming the competition. For example, the long-range version of the Tesla Model Y, the world’s best-selling EV, can travel about 330 miles by US test standards.
More autonomy and lower production costs
In addition, Toyota will adopt innovative strategies to reduce the production costs of its electric vehicles. They will use a “self-propelled” assembly line and Giga fusion, following the example of Tesla, a leader in the EV sector. These initiatives will enable Toyota to offer competitive electric vehicles at affordable prices. To realize this vision, Toyota founded the BEV Factory, which aims to produce approximately 1.7 million vehicles by 2030. This represents a significant push towards electric mobility, with the aim of selling 3.5 million vehicles annually electricity within that year. Toyota’s commitment to electric vehicles is also evident from recent results.
In April, the company achieved an important milestone, selling 8,584 electric vehicles worldwide, including those of the Lexus brand. This represented more than 1% of global sales in a single month for the first time. Toyota is determined to lead innovation in the electric vehicle industry, offering cutting-edge solutions that meet consumer needs for range, performance and cost. With its new strategy, the company aims to redefine the future of sustainable mobility.
