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.
Competitive edge in battery know-how
Toyota both produces batteries in-house and collaborates with partners for the development and supply of batteries. This collaborative structure will enable us to share knowledge and establish a stable supply system to meet the increased production of electrified vehicles. In 1996 we established what is today known as Prime Earth EV Energy. Since then we have produced more than 20 million batteries. At first we refined our nickel-metal hydride battery technologies, and then in 2003 we accelerated the development of lithium-ion batteries. Since establishing our Battery Research Division in 2008, we have advanced our research on solid-state and other next-generation batteries.
