As of 2020, there are no production cars with solid-state batteries. However, several companies are experimenting with the technology as part of the push towards developing electric vehicles (EVs) with longer ranges, faster charging, and lighter components. Some of these companies include:
• Fisker Inc. – Fisker’s Ocean electric SUV is expected to have solid-state tech when it hits the market later this year.
• Volkswagen Group – The automaker is planning to use the technology in their upcoming electric cars.
• Toyota – The company has been investing heavily in research and development to create an EV battery with a long range and rapid recharge.
• Honda – The company is exploring the use of solid-state batteries.
• Hyundai – Hyundai is also researching this type of battery for future EV models.
Solid-state battery technology has the potential to revolutionize EV design, creating lighter and more efficient vehicles with enhanced range and recharge times. This technology is still in its early stages, and it may take several years before we see it implemented in mass-market cars.
