Honda Also Aspiring for Solid-State Batteries

Honda has disclosed it too is interested in solid-state batteries for electric vehicles. The company is joining a growing list of automakers who are expressing a public interest in the upcoming battery technology.

Reuters reports Honda has confirmed the company is at least researching solid-state battery technology, but has stopped short of disclosing if they are actually working on developing one just yet. The company has declined speculation it is working on a solid-state battery with Nissan. Nissan has not yet commented on the matter.

The quest for solid-state batteries is unsurprising. As most global automakers transition to battery-electric vehicles to meet ever-growing emissions requirements, finding batteries with increased capacity and faster charging are becoming critical. Solid-state batteries offer both of those benefits, plus require far less safety mechanisms, making them very appealing to automakers.

Earlier this week BMW announced a partnership with Colorado-based Solid Power to develop solid state batteries. Likewise, Toyota has already disclosed it is working on solid-state packs with battery maker Panasonic.
