Toyota has found an alternative to lithium-ion batteries

The engineers of the Japanese company found a replacement Li-ion batteries in electric vehicles.

In view of the fact that when using lithium-ion batteries there is always the risk of causing a fire or even an explosion, the specialists of the company Toyota was thinking on how to solve this problem. They propose to replace them with magnesium batteries. With the same capacity, they have a much smaller size and a higher level of security. These factors definitely play in favor of this development. For its improvement, as well as bringing this idea up to commercial scale may need about two decades.

In addition to Toyota’s quest for such solutions can do a lot of car manufacturers and design centres, but nobody has managed to gain a foothold with their products on the market of electric vehicles.
