“IMV 0 Concept” “Hilux Revo BEV Concept”

Created completely new IMV pickup trucks for Thailand, “IMV 0 Concept” and “Hilux Revo BEV Concept”.

President Akio Toyoda: “To achieve carbon neutrality, carbon is not a specific powertrain and, frankly, BEVs are not the only way to reach the world’s carbon neutrality goals. We believe it is important to create a complete portfolio of carbon reduction options for our customers, including plug-in electric vehicles, battery electric vehicles and fuel cell vehicles, as well as the GR-Yaris and GR-Corolla. We are also exploring hydrogen fuel options, such as hydrogen-powered concept cars, and I believe a holistic approach to carbon neutrality is necessary as we work towards a sustainable future.”

Toyota’s omnidirectional strategy for next-generation powertrains

Toyota is also developing “hydrogen vehicles” along with “electric vehicles (EV)” so that they can be used with any kind of energy. The most famous hydrogen vehicle, “MIRAI”, is a “hydrogen fuel cell vehicle (FCV)”. An FCV is a vehicle similar to an electric vehicle that generates electricity through a chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen and sends power to a motor. Furthermore, Toyota has developed a “hydrogen engine”, an internal combustion engine that uses hydrogen instead of gasoline as fuel. It does not use fossil fuels such as gasoline or light oil, and it is a mechanism that only water emits zero emissions. Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a way to move towards carbon neutrality in Japan while keeping the engine by making use of its strengths? So I turned my attention to the “hydrogen engine”.until nowA mechanism that does not use fossil fuels using the internal combustion engine technology cultivated by ToyotaIf you permeate theEmployment and inheritance of Toyota technology that is competitive with other companiesThat’s the idea.FurthermoreIt is possible to reduce the vehicle price because it can be produced at a lower cost than “FCV”.Toyota does not stick to EV vehicles, and has a wide variety of models.
