Japan increases support for domestic EV battery output

Japan is boosting its support for storage battery production with up to $2.2 billion in subsidies, including nearly $1 billion for Toyota and other manufacturers. The government's aim is to enhance economic supply chain security and compete in the global market. Toyota, in response, has unveiled ambitious plans for technology advancements and factory redesign, with the government providing subsidies of 117.8 billion yen ($841 million) to support its investment in EV battery production. Mass production of these batteries is expected to begin in stages from October 2026.

        The elephant in the room for a complete transition to EVs remains to be the batteries and so by according this industry such huge support, it simply means that the EV battery headache is yet to be over.
