I have always taken this idea to be a response to the then perception that diesel cars would be banned in many places. This technology gives the low end torque and mpg that attracts owners of diesels. I think regulations have been changing much quicker than anticipated with any fossil fuel car now looked with suspicion in some cities.
Sadly just another fossil fuel car. Wake me when it has decent plug in range.
So sadly just another fuel car. When are they going to wake up and give us a plug and and at least 50 mile battery range. Looks like I will be replacing my Corolla with a car from another maker.
Sadly Nissan's E-power is just another fossil fuel idea designed to take up former diesel markets.
This will be a good breakthrough if it works out as it will remove our dependence on cobalt which comes from politically unstable sources in the main.
Any one know what version of the supposed range they are using? Even a real 240k would be practical if it can be fast charged repeatedly.
It seems the provider of H2 uses hydrolysis on site. That's a good sign however it will be interesting to see just how this pans out in cost per mile for the customer.
Good, this one of the better moves Toyota has made..... a hybrid not tied to the fossil fuel industry. Needs to be a PHEV however with a decent battery range.
Hmmm, the devil is in the details
NG is a polluting fossil fuel. The idea is to keep that crap in the ground where it belongs.
Why am I not surprised. That is the kind of testing that should have been done on all cars for a long time. So even with the fix, the car is still spewing out plenty of cancer causing NOx.
Sorry what has a filthy fossil fuel burning car got to do with anything green? Is this car offered as a BEV or a PHEV?
Great to see it has both standards on each charger. While Chademo might eventually go the way of Betamax, for now both are needed . I hope these can be easily upgraded to higher charge rates, 50kW is a bit light on these days. The network is only suitable for the cafe latte set located around Brisbane, needs to go all the way to Cape York and out into the interior.
If this can be brought to commercial use it is a great breakthrough. One of the biggest problems with Lithium Cobalt Oxide batteries has been the potential for shorts.
While I am far from convinced that fuel cells have any future for private cars, if they are sourcing their hydrogen from clean sources then good luck to them.
Seems like lot of trouble to go to , particularly when customers will have to continually use adblue. A PHEV would give customers the lower fuel costs per mile and low end torque they are used to with their diesel cars minus the NOX issues of a diesel. Make the motor flexfuel able and they can clean up their act even more. Diesels will be increasingly banned in city environments so it doesn't make much sense to purchase one in many paces.
Perhaps the supplementary sail option will get more attention too.
It will be even better when they can remove any need for the petrol tank.
Wake me when this is done renewably, not just a scam from the fossil fuel companies.
Well done to Tri Delta Transit.
Good move from some states, hope they agreed on a charging standard so they can do bulk buys together.
Hopefully this type of research will lead to better ways of producing NH3. This will be part of the renewable hydrogen economy.
Natural gas, another filthy fossil fuel con. Nothing green here to be seen.
