Toshiba EV battery gives 200 miles after six minute charge

Toshiba says that by replacing the lithium-titanium oxide anodes used in its lithium-ion EV batteries, with titanium-niobium oxide (TNO) anodes it can charge a battery in six minutes.

This would give an EV 200 miles of range on a six minute charge, says Toshiba.

Currently the Chevy Bolt gets 90 miles after a 30 minute charge.

Toshiba claims a 32-kWh EV battery can provide triple the range when compared with a typical lithium-ion battery running on a six-minute charge.

“We are very excited by the potential of the new titanium niobium oxide anode and the next generation SCiB,” says Toshiba R&d boss Dr. Osamu Hori, “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 SCiB into practical application in fiscal year 2019.”

Toshiba claims its battery will retain 90% of its capacity after 5,000 charge-discharge cycles — 14 years of recharge cycles at one per day.

Although Toshiba is talking about selling the battery in 2019, it makes no claim about cost which could be a problem.
