Toyota, the technological revolution: the electric car that recharges in 15 minutes

Toyota continues its race towards new technologies to be applied to zero emission cars, which represent the symbol of future mobility. Most likely within a year the brand will show the first prototype with solid state lithium batteries.

In fact, before the Coronavirus pandemic shook the globe, Toyota had already decided to present the car this year, on the occasion of the Tokyo Olympics, postponed precisely because of Covid-19. Keiji Kaita, vice president of the group responsible for traction systems, during an interview, revealed some information on new accumulators of the future. The big news, very advantageous, is that they would reduce the charging time of electric cars to just one 15 minutes, without compromising the life of the system in any way.

In conclusion, a significant revolution, if we think that to date the charging times, together with the prices of zero emission vehicles and the absence of a well-developed network of refueling stations, are one of the limits which still prevent a massive expansion of this type of car. The new batteries may also come with a guarantee of 30 yearsafter this time, by the way, they would still have 90% of the initial storage capacity.

All this was born thanks to the collaboration between Toyota e Panasonic, which last April created the Prime Planet Energy and Solutions joint venture, created precisely to create and distribute lithium batteries with different cell geometries and solid state batteries. But what is the substantial difference between current and solid-state lithium batteries? The electrolyte.

Element that passes precisely from the liquid state to the solid state, allows more stability and therefore a more reliable adoption of charging at high and very high voltage; increase safety, durability and storage capacity. To date they have already been proposed different new technologies however, they never passed the experimental phase, in fact the materials identified in the theoretical study phase never proved to be adequate and effective.

Toyota would like to launch series models with solid state lithium batteries by 2025, although at this point, thanks to the new prototype that will be presented (probably) next year, the times could be drastically reduced. The next generation of the Toyota Prius which could also be the first hybrid car standard in the story with solid state lithium batteries.


Toyota’s profit fell by three quarters, selling half fewer cars

Japan Motor’s largest carmaker, Toyota Motor, fell 74.3 percent year-on-year net profit to 158.84 billion yen (CZK 33 billion) in the first quarter of its financial year. Due to the covid-19 disease pandemic, global sales have halved.

The carmaker also said today that it is recovering better than expected from the effects of the pandemic, and therefore increased the outlook for car sales.

The carmaker’s operating profit in the quarter fell 98 percent year on year to 13.9 billion yen (CZK 2.9 billion), the highest from the quarter to the end of June 2011. However, analysts in the Refinitiv survey expected a loss of 179 billion yen.

Revenues fell 40.4 percent to 4.6 trillion yen (CZK 956.8 billion) between April and June, due to quarantine measures, shutdowns and sales disruptions. All major markets have been affected, but the Chinese market is slowly recovering.


Toyota sold 1.2 million cars worldwide last quarter, up from 2.3 million last year. The company has raised its sales outlook for the fiscal year, which jumps in March 2021, to 7.2 million from a May estimate of seven million cars. Toyota sold nine million cars in the previous fiscal year.

Unlike Japanese competitors such as Honda Motor and Nissan Motor, or the largest American carmaker General Motors, Toyota managed to keep a profit for the past quarter.


The surveyor criticized the Toyota RAV4 IV diesel engine for dynamics and “maslozhor”

The fourth generation Toyota RAV4 was produced from 2013 to 2019. The crossover has established itself as a reliable car and, in the footsteps of its predecessor, has become the best-selling in the class. In addition to gasoline engines, the Japanese assembled in small batches with a rarer diesel engine. Her work was criticized by the author of the popular YouTube channel Dizzlike Channel.

According to the surveyor, the Toyota RAV4 crossover with a 2.2-liter diesel engine rated at 150 “horses” not enough dynamics. So, the declared acceleration “to hundreds” is 10.0 seconds. Fuel economy compared to 2.0 and 2.5 liter gasoline engines is only 1 liter “per hundred,” but the 2.0-liter “brother” has a better acceleration of 9.4 seconds. This is confirmed by the owners of the “Japanese” on the theme site Drom.

Another characteristic “motor oil” is considered a motor problemwhich relates to design features. “From carriage to pumpkin,” the blogger criticizes.

In defense of the “turbodiesel”, an auto mechanic from another Auto Plus YouTube channel spoke out. He claims that the unit, although “weak,” and breakdowns occur, but still with timely oil changes and the use of high-quality fuel able to serve 400 thousand kilometers.

The specialist recommends paying more attention to the automatic 6-speed gearbox, which is combined with a diesel unit on the Toyota RAV4. Its declared resource is 150 thousand kilometers, but it is sharply reduced during “aggressive” driving. At the first “kicks” or jerks when shifting gears, it is recommended to immediately contact a service center.

Thus, criticism of the Ravchik is acceptable, but the experience of motorists is still different. In general, Toyota RAV4 IV owners are advised to conduct regular maintenance of power units. And for drivers who decide to purchase a diesel engine, a detailed car diagnosis should be made before buying.

On the wheel arches of an SUV are installed overlays, which add even more angularity to a multifaceted body and smoothly pass into the thresholds, clearly emphasizing the lower part of the car.

Behind the Toyota Land Cruiser 200 appeared a pair of spoilers and a unique diffuser with exhaust holes on the sides. In the center of the bumper, an LED reversing light was installed, which is not noticeable at first glance, because it harmonizes with the smooth lines of the rear of the car.
