Toyota electric

See https://electrek.co/2020/12/07/toyota-e ... tric-cars/
Anyone think that might be an electric CHR?

Dont think so.. lines at the rear dont match coupe shape of C-HR.
Looks more like lexus UX, Yaris Cross of other midsize SUV model.

But Toyota is working on a Solid State Battery too:

Even Mr Akio Toyoda said this about Tesla :
"Tesla says that their recipe will be the standard in the future, but what Toyota has is a real kitchen and a real chef"

Full article here : https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles ... oyoda-says

Anyway.. all together its a recipe for something great that will come 8-)

Interesting. If that solid state battery is as good as it sounds then that could be a real game changer.
I have just been looking round to change my car. Very tempted to go electric but decided to go for another hybrid CHR this time in the hope that electric cars will improve over the next few years (both in range and in price) as well as the charging infrastructure improving. Having a battery that can be charged in 10 mins makes it just like stopping at a petrol pump.
All the best

Hybrid will be best for the coming years.

These days EV can only be interesting if you can fast-charge at home... or for free every day at work.
Otherwise you also have to add stops to your journey.. to charge again. And maybe few cars in front of you too.
So the switch to EV... It all needs time.. :mrgreen:

"if you can fast-charge at home... or for free every day at work."
At home - ideally, if you actually own a house and not an apartment.
At work - granted, I haven't been anywhere near around my office for nearly 10 months now, but charging spaces were always full early in the morning. Too many well paid colleagues.

You're so right! If charging would be widely available I would go for an electric car with a 3-400km range! I'm in Ireland, I'll never drive that many km in one day!
But while this range costs 2x a normal car (and it comes with that huge screen on dash - can't ever see myself on a car with a TV on the dash) and charging takes a day...I can't pay that much money and I can't survive with being stuck with location on charging stations.
We will eventually get there! But there's still plenty ways to go on increasing battery capacity and charging time. 20 years ago our phones would not dream on phones we have today. Same will happen to our current cars.

I will change my C-HR in a couple of years time when the contract comes up, I like the idea of a full BEM but they are too expensive at the moment and the charging infrastructure still needs work. Three years after that the decision will be easier as hopefully the cost of BEMs should drop and the infrastructure should be there.

I read somewhere that there is a fully electric C-HR, but it is only available in China (made there for the local market where EV's are selling fast). I think it had a decent range, about 250 miles, and 75% recharge in an hour. I'd deffo be up for one.
