Toshiba car battery aims at 320km of driving range with just a six minute charge

Posted on Thursday, October 05 2017 @ 10:54:18 CEST by


Japanese conglomerate Toshiba developed a new battery that uses a titanium niobium oxide anode material. Aimed at the electric car market, this battery promises to make it possible to enable 200 miles (320 kilometers) of range with just six minutes of charging! Toshiba claims they can commercialize this technology about two years from now.
Dr. Osamu Hori, Director of Corporate Research & Development Center at Toshiba Corporation, commented on the announcement:

“We are very excited by the potential of the new titanium niobium oxide anode and the next-generation SCiBTM. Rather than an incremental improvement, this is a game changing advance that will make a significant difference to the range and performance of EV. We will continue to improve the battery’s performance and aim to put the next-generation SCiBTM into practical application in fiscal year 2019.”
If it all pans out, it sounds a bit like the holy grail of battery technology. This new type promises very fast recharging, high energy density, and the ability to hold over 90 percent of its initial capacity after 5,000 charge/discharge cycles. More at Electrek.
