Tesla is going to feel some heat

Fisker long thought out of the game has made an announcement that might stir the pot and bring it to a boil.

'This breakthrough marks the beginning of a new era in solid-state materials and manufacturing technologies,' said Dr. Fabio Albano, VP of battery systems at Fisker Inc. 'We are addressing all of the hurdles that solid-state batteries have encountered on the path to commercialization, such as performance in cold temperatures; the use of low cost and scalable manufacturing methods; and the ability to form bulk solid-state electrodes with significant thickness and high active material loadings.
'We are excited to build on this foundation and move the needle in energy storage.'

The technology is still not a reality, the technology is currently slowed by major issues like limited materials availability, price and competition. Bigger names in EV and tech, such as Toyota and Dyson, are also currently working on solid-state batteries for electric vehicles.

The new battery technology will be shown off at the Consumer Electronics Show in January and could be mass produced as early as 2023. That means there could be solid-state battery-powered cars on the road in 6 years.
