Toyota has decades of experience developing and manufacturing batteries for different types of vehicles. We are applying all this experience to provide customers with the reliable breakthrough technologies that are required for their electrified future.
Bipolar NiMH battery
Batteries are undergoing a remarkable evolution, including their structure. We will continue to examine a wide range of possibilities to develop batteries with innovative structures. Recently we started production of the world's first bi-polar NiMH battery. This is smaller and lighter than a regular NiMH battery. Crucially, it uses fewer critical earth materials, which means less mining and lower environmental impact. And it results in lower costs. Yet it delivers an output density which is double that of a regular NiMh battery.
