Toyota: E-athletes with solid battery accelerates brachial news

Toyotas Premium brand Lexus wants to bring an electric super sports car onto the market that is supposed to step into the footsteps of the Lexus LFA. The electric athlete, who may be supposed to come with a solid battery, should need far less than three seconds from 0 to 100 km/h. In the video you can see the site test for the hydrogen car Toyota Mirai.

In Toyota’s surprising unveiling of a total of 15 planned electric cars, there was also an electric super sports car, with which Toyota would probably like to revive memories of the rare Lexus LFA, which was produced between 2010 and 2012 in a circulation of only 500 copies.

The e-athlete presented as a concept vehicle was as a presentation "A battery-operated e-sports car that inherits the driving taste and the ‘secret ingredient’ that had produced the development of the LFA".

The fairly flat sports car with the – despite a lack of combustion engine – fairly long bonnet and an aggressive design, a time is to be used for the sprint from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour "in the low two-second range" require. At the same time, Lexus is aiming for a range of over 700 kilometers, as the British industry portal AutoCar (advertisement) reports.

The performance and range could be made possible through the use of solid batteries, the development of which of the parent company Toyota had recently announced. From the middle of the decade, Toyota plans to install these energy stores that rely on a solid electrolyte in its vehicles. First of all, however, the Japanese want to use the solid batteries in their hybrid cars to test and evaluate the technology.
