Tesla and Toyota Partnership.

Tesla and Toyota could be the perfect combination; they can make a car which can drive itself to the scrapyard. 🤣

Well... my wife's 10 year old Camry has been perfectly reliable.

You cant beat Japanese cars for reliability.

Or can you...

My 23 year old Camry is still running like a Swiss watch! :laugh:

Now if you could get it running like a car...

 

You were waiting for that weren't you?

I must say the Mazda CX5 I had was great. I would certainly buy another Japanese car. Only had one issue with it fixed under warranty. My next car with be electric though I think.

EVs are going to receive a big boost in public take-up once this technology scales-up:

https://www.forbes.com/sites/michaeltaylor/2021/05/13/ev-range-breakthrough-as-new-aluminum-ion-battery-charges-60-times-faster-than-lithium-ion/

(My emphasis)

Quote

Range anxiety, recycling and fast-charging fears could all be consigned to electric-vehicle history with a nanotech-driven Australian battery invention.
The graphene aluminum-ion battery cells from the Brisbane-based Graphene Manufacturing Group (GMG) are claimed to charge up to 60 times faster than the best lithium-ion cells and hold three time the energy of the best aluminum-based cells. They are also safer, with no upper Ampere limit to cause spontaneous overheating, more sustainable and easier to recycle, thanks to their stable base materials. Testing also shows the coin-cell validation batteries also last three times longer than lithium-ion versions. GMG plans to bring graphene aluminum-ion coin cells to market late this year or early next year, with automotive pouch cells planned to roll out in early 2024.
[...]
The new battery cells are claimed to deliver far more energy density than current lithium-ion batteries, without the cooling, heating or rare-earth problems they face.
[...]
There is also a massive geopolitical, cost, environmental and recycling advantage from using aluminum-ion cells, because they use hardly any exotic materials.

Yep. As I mentioned in a previous post, there are all manner of amazing battery technologies in the lab.

I think solid state will be the first to arrive though, prototype production lines are already up and running.

Then there's Toyota's solid state battery almost here.
