BMW and Toyota Team up for Lithium Ion Battery Research
BMW and Toyotaannounced today that they have signed a research agreement that will have them performing collaborative research for the next generation of lithium-ion batteries. Lithium ion batteries are used in EVs and hybrid vehicles that are on the market today. Better performing battery packs are the key to more mainstream integration especially in the EV market since they will allow for a longer driving distance.
BMW notes that it and Toyota will be focusing on increasing the performance and capacity of existing lithium-ion batteries using new combinations of materials for the battery cathode, anode, and electrolytes. BMW will also begin providing 1.6-liter in 2.0-liter diesel engines to Toyota in 2014.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
