Toyota to sell batteries to other automakers - AutoblogGreen
All fine and well but what advantages are there with batteries specifically designed for use in electric vehicles as opposed to "general purpose cells"? Chemistry is known, packaging is not an issue, what then? Format? Better use of space i.e. volume density? Problem is mass not volume.
I see this as a knee jerk reaction from top players. They are cought of guards and years behind. Their batteries are many years away. Toyota is still to sell a single plugin hybrid. They only do what they can do. They talk and offer press releases.
New Prius is a laugh. Same with Insight.
