But despite apparent antipathy to EVs, Toyota was hedging its bets by waiting for battery technology to be good enough to take away range anxiety, and deliver charging times you could actually live with in the real world. The auto maker said that it's near a breakthrough in production engineering that could help it put the new tech in production electric vehicles as early as 2020, according to the Wall Street Journal.
