Toyota recently declared a breakthrough in solid-state batteries (SSD) (as previously reported).

 A new manufacturing technology promises to produce powerful batteries in half the size.

The hype is commensurate, but what is the truth about the new miraculous battery?

When will our cars be able to travel 1,500 kilometres on a single charge?

The headline in the Financial Times about Toyota's solid state batteries was "Between Hope and Hype."

 The so-called "solid-state battery technology" has the ability to completely eliminate.

The batteries can store significantly more energy, allowing them to be smaller without sacrificing range.

 Toyota alone expects to invest almost $35 billion in electrified vehicles.
