The emergence of small lightweight lithium ion batteries has helped a market for notebook computers, phones, and other portable from the iPod to the BlackBerry. efforts to scale that for use in car batteries could do for the automotive what it did for computer and phone The benefit for consumers could be hybrid or pure electric with great efficiency, and rangeat the same price or than today s conventional

On Dec. 16, 2005, Toyota that they would development of lithium batteries for use in hybrids. That s a clear of how important battery power may for the auto industry. For Toyota to its goals of selling one million globally per year and offering versions of all their popular they ll need to reduce the cost of their hybrids. this year, Katsuaki Toyota s president, articulated goal as reducing the cost of hybrids to one-half the current

According to Dave Hermance, engineer of environmental engineering at batteries are the single most element in the hybrid system. To a big leap forward with he said, we ll need a new battery

The current crop of hybrid like the Toyota Prius and the Civic Hybrid, use a combination of and nickel metal hydride batteries. NiMH is a major up from the lead acid most drivers recognize their hoods. Battery with nickel, while powerful than lead have not provided the breakthrough and the cost benefits that engineers had hoped.

The power of nickel batteries from the raw material, which is more expensive due to increased while the benefits of lithium are derived from the the mass which can scale to the high required for the rapidly growing marketwithout a corresponding jump in

The emergence and adoption of advanced batteries could shake up the industry. To better understand the ahead, several auto including Subaru, Nissan, and have produced concept that use lithium batteries. became the first to use lithium ion in a production vehicle when it a four-cell lithium pack in its CVT4, a Scion-looking small vehicle only available in

The Vitz s battery pack the lights, heater, air conditioner, and while the car is stopped, allowing the engine to shut off.

By the boldest vision of the lithium is the Volvo 3CC concept car. in 2004, the all-electric vehicle exclusively on 3,000 lithium ion each one approximately the size of a AA battery, to provide the equivalent of 105 with absolutely zero We were forced by the current to use the small format batteries.

If we have done it with than 3,000 cells, it have made my life a lot said Ichiro Sugioka, officer at Volvo s Monitoring and Center in Camarillo, Calif.

Sugioka was unable to use larger ion batteries more suitable for because they don t commonly in the market today. Battery trying to create larger batteries, which use cobalt in formula, quickly encounter a known as thermal runawaywhich the batteries can easily catch or explode. Not a good idea for However, two enterprising companies, Technologies and A123 Systems had better results by replacing with other metals, as phosphate.

Here s how Valence its approach: Whereas traditional ion technology utilizes cobalt-oxide material, Saphion® technology a phosphate based cathode

The result is inherently less however, these two companies technology is working like to produce energy storage and power similar to cobalt, avoiding the safety and longevity Yet, the technology still has a way to three to five yearsbefore lithium batteries are powerful cheap enough, and most reliable enough to go into production vehicles. Pinpointing a when the first carmaker the risk on the new batteries is tough.

The ball on this is real but we ll get there. Lithium ion has too many said John German, of Environmental and Energy Analyses for Honda.

Business Chemistry

Dozens of companies are racing toward a payday. Some say that lithium batteries will all our transportation problems, and make fuel cells immediately The major car companies are not taking the claims very seriously, but battery companies have wider attention. In Nov.

Systems, a private company in Mass. unveiled a lithium that earned them $32 in funding from big name such as Sequoia Capital, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. The is working with Department of on the development of lithium ion batteries for vehicles. Lithium iron batteries from Valence a publicly traded company in Austin, Tex. are being in Segway electric scooters and a publicized converted plug-in

Toyota has spent millions of dollars to make sure consumers know that hybrids don t need be plugged in. But industry insiders predict a hybrid with the option to in not only represents the next of hybrid vehicles, but a major in automotive technology. Using a home electric plug and a driver could recharge a car during off-peak hours, and up with a vehicle ready to 50 or 100 miles without using a of gasoline. This can t happen more robust batteries other things), and the entire is looking at lithium batteries as the

EDrive Systems, a joint between EnergyCS Inc. and LLC, has created a number of hybrid prototypes in its effort to the new technology. EDrive used s lithium batteries.

The right chemical formula not necessarily produce a winning formula. In the first quarter of the fiscal year, Valence in $3.4 million in revenue, a 20 increase from a year But the company, which was founded in has never recorded a profit. A123, and other smaller makers, could greatly from a partnership with a car company. Dean Bogues, of worldwide sales, marketing, and development for Valence, said commercialization of their lithium car is not likely to occur overnight via a name car company, but will over time through and distribution in commercial fleets.

a battery maker based in has entered into such a with DaimlerChrysler by deploying its batteries for use in the car company s plug-in Sprinter Van, currently tested but with no clear for production.

Bogues added, If was interest from a major OEM equipment manufacturer], we wouldn t it down. He explained that it takes 10 years to commercialize new chemistry, and places Valence at three years into product development cycle.

battery companies generally experience with auto who can be very demanding from suppliers. The G.M.s, DaimlerChryslers, Fords, and Toyotas of this want a battery company to a finished integrated system, not the component cells, electronics, etc. That problem down to another set of players, Altair Nanotechnologies, who serve the battery makers with raw

Progress from Within

with big hybrid dreams, is not for the small players to deliver. The maker of the Prius and Highlander recently spent $740 to establish a nine percent stake in Fuji Heavy which makes advanced batteries (and Subaru In October, Toyota also their equity in Panasonic EV from 40 to 60 percent.

PEVE, the s leading supplier of nickel hydride, will act as they key in Toyota s recently announced to develop a lithium ion battery for cars.

Johnson Controls is making a play in the hybrid market. In 2002, Johnson acquired Varta, a major automotive battery manufacturer. In 2005, they launched a $4 lab to accelerate work on lithium and in Oct. signed a memorandum of to work with Saft. Controls could emerge as the major U.S.-based hybrid maker.

The United States is the s largest hybrid car market, and all the car who manufacture hybrids in the U.S.Toyota production of the Camry Hybrid in benefit from having a supplier. If Johnson Controls lithium expertise, they be even better positioned.

and Gold

The average driver has little or no of battery chemistry. Small companies and large auto know exactly what it a critical step towards hybrid cars from a curiosity to a major revolution in technology. Lithium batteries be the key. One day not too long ago, we up and found ourselves suddenly by cell phones and laptops. We re closer and closer to the dayprobably beyond the end of this decadewhen one or battery companies hit the right and lithium batteries for cars are in the millions.

Engineers in those are like modern day alchemists, to turn base materials gold. If they succeed, could indeed be very

But the historical alchemists had deeper They sought personal transformation. And the modern day battery also aspire to loftier a world of personal mobility auto pollution, global and oil wars.
