Lithium-ion batteries have provided the first serious competition in a century to fossil fuels and combustion engines for transportation. And Akira Yoshino, a co-winner of the 2019 Nobel Prize in chemistry for his work on lithium-ion batteries, sees more disruption ahead as transportation and digital technology become one industry, sharing lithium battery technology.

In an interview, Yoshino discusses the next generation of electric vehicle batteries, the potential for shared autonomous electric vehicles that can charge themselves, prospects for hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles, and the possibility that Apple could lead the convergence of the automotive and information technology industries in future mobility.
