Toyoto announces 900 mile solid state battery for EVs

Apparently the secret sauce, a solid electrolyte, is in an oddly shaped red plastic vessel. (Page down about half way.)

Well that was not what I expected.

Yeah, I don’t think the Public Relations team had much input into the shape and design of the vessel.

Toyota may have a different definition of “plug-in electric”.

Yeah, that was not a well thought out design for Western tastes.

However, the title of this thread is misleading because at this time no-one has a solid state battery. They only plan to produce one, and most of the Toyota articles I have seen recently are still saying it is in research stage.

Not really misleading, from announce to deliver is usually a very long stretch. Many fall into The Chasm.
