Toyota: a 1000km range battery by 2015? (Solid State)

Toyota Motor has announced that they have developed, in partnership with the Tokyo Institute of Technology and the High Energy Accelerator Research Organization a solid-state battery.

Its electrodes and electrolytes are solid: non-flammable and less sensitive to cold temperatures (they heat up faster) these batteries can store up to 5 times more energy than current batteries and could emerge in series production as soon as 2015-2020, by then, Japan's New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization predicted that the costs of batteries would be between one fifth and one tenth of present ones!

That should give a big boost to the electric car!
