Will solid-state batteries be required in order to build the electric Honda Civic Type-R in 2023?
At this point, it is unclear if a solid-state battery would be necessary for a fully electric Civic Type R.
Compared to conventional lithium-ion batteries,
solid-state batteries have a higher energy density, quicker charging times, and greater safety.
They are a more recent type of battery technology.
They are not yet generally accessible for commercial usage and are still in the early stages of development.
On an electric Civic Type R or other future electric vehicles, Honda might opt to use solid-state batteries,
but this would likely rely on the status of the technology at the time of manufacturing.
