Two major automakers team up to advanced batteries

BMW and Toyota announced 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.
