Toyota's reticence about pure electrics has been linked to insufficient range now offered by lithium-ion batteries, making their use unappealing in smaller cars.

A Toyota spokesperson told Reuters the company is aiming to commercialize the new batteries by the early 2020s.
A new type of battery being developed by Toyota might just be the solution to those problems. Electric vehicles now use lithium-ion batteries, so it will be interesting to see if Toyota manages to push all-solid-state batteries to mainstream production. This gives it both a lower chance of overheating and a higher energy density, which should theoretically allow a vehicle to travel much greater distances before needing to be recharged.
