Toyota, a leading automotive player in the automobile industry, introduced its plan for high-performance, solid state, and other technologies to enhance the performance and range of electric vehicles along with cost-effectiveness. The top Japanese automaker stated that it has aimed to introduce next-generation batteries by 2026. The company looks forward to the opportunities to win over consumers with electric vehicles that ensure drive range and fast charging time.
VMR has analyzed the electric vehicles market and found that the market is standing at USD 216.31 Billion. The global electric vehicle market will witness a staggering CAGR of 16.12% and will reach USD 830.03 Billion by 2030. Various other automakers are also heavily investing in improving electric vehicle technology for future domination. Auto players like Tesla have already gathered the limelight with new updates on electric vehicle technology daily.
Tesla has gained a positive reputation since it introduced EV technologies. Although Toyota has been a big name in the automotive industry owing to its potential customers’ enthusiasm for its vehicles, they have a strong chance to establish a significant position in the EV industry.
Toyota is also developing a method that can produce solid-state batteries in mass production, which they aim to commercialize between 2027-2028. However, Toyota has been pushing its rivals back and keeping itself in a strong position. The automotive giant also declared that it would produce an electric vehicle with a more efficient lithium-ion battery ranging up to 1,000 km. Tesla’s extended-range model can range up to 530 km. Toyota did not detail the cost and manufacturing site for this new long ranged model and next-generation solid-state batteries.
Where is the electric vehicle trend heading?
Electrification of vehicles is one of the hot topics that has been creating a buzz for a few years. The striking features and benefits of electric vehicles are developing attraction and grabbing the attention of automobile enthusiasts. The low maintenance cost, simplicity of operating, free from noise pollution, and others are some features that are grabbing the eyeballs of consumers.
Owing to the rising trend of electric vehicles, EV charging stations are also witnessing a considerable transformation all around the world. VMR projected that the global electric vehicle charging stations market was worth USD 4.23 Billion and is expected to rise at an exponential CAGR of 33.8%, reaching USD 60.46 Billion by 2030.
Electric vehicles are now utilized in various industries also. A recent example of industrial application is the use of electric vehicles in mining and construction activities. These types of vehicles are known as off-highway electric vehicles that are not used on highways.
Instead, they are used for hard sites such as mining and construction. VMR also estimated that the global off-highway electric vehicle market will grow at a CAGR of 18.75% and touch USD 42.35 Billion by 2030.
Innovations that will create an impact
With the rising rivalry and changing competitive landscape, the electric vehicle industry may face various innovations in the coming years. The increasing focus on the environment is also an essential factor propelling the global electric vehicle battery market.
With the consumer shift to electric vehicles, automotive players are also pointing their focus on efficient and high-range electric vehicle batteries. As per the VMR analysis, the global electric vehicle battery market is expected to reach USD 133.46 Billion by 2027 with a registered CAGR of 18.05%.
Furthermore, in order to make electric vehicles more efficient with energy, leading automakers are also developing the best possible innovations for solid-state batteries in electric vehicles that can hold more energy than conventional ones. The increasing adoption of solid-state batteries in electric vehicles will also offer lucrative opportunities for the global solid-state batteries market, as per VMR’s recent research. The market will grow with an exceptional CAGR of 70.10%.
Moreover, owing to the rising emphasis on battery range, the leading players are also focusing on inventing electric vehicles with more efficient lithium-ion batteries that can offer a great range. The increased research and development for lithium-ion batteries and rising adoption in electric vehicles are creating demand for lithium-ion batteries, which is positively impacting the global lithium-ion batteries market, according to the experts’ analysis of VMR.
Electric vehicles are the new future of automobiles with salient features that attract consumers. However, there are various developments and inventions that are every day creating a buzz about electric vehicles.
Toyota has been a grand leader in the automobile industry and is now globally in the electric vehicle industry. The company has been working on every facet of vehicle electrification along with modern and innovative technologies related to batteries and range.
Toyota is right now focusing on offering consumers a range of new-energy vehicles, including petrol-electric-hybrids, hydrogen fuel cells, and battery EVs, to transform the industry from petrol-powered vehicles.
