Although the Toyota/Tokyo Institute of Technology collaboration and Hitachi Zosen, which were expected to lead the world in the mass production of all-solid-state batteries, have postponed their material development schedules, an increasing number of semi-solid-state/all-solid-state batteries (hereafter referred to as solid-state batteries) have been launched by other companies. This is because there are many advantages unique to solid-state batteries, and many different technologies, including "semi" solid-state batteries, have been proposed. However, it is the start-ups that are leading the way to mass production for EV applications, and the major automotive battery makers have either proposed a later date or have not stated their commitment at this time.
This report focuses on mass-produced lithium-ion solid-state batteries, regardless of their application. In addition, as the movement toward adoption in passenger BEVs is particularly active, this report summarizes the plans announced by each automaker and outlines the products of all solid-state battery suppliers involved in those plans.
Note: In this report, mass production is defined as the state in which cells can be supplied on a commercial basis. Therefore, even if the quantities were large, those supplied for prototype and demonstration purposes are not treated as mass production.
Information on these solid-state batteries was collected through the websites and presentations by the companies involved through January 2023, as well as through coverage of the following exhibitions.
