Toyota Car of the Future’ On Next Year; Opens Consumer Electronics Show

Reasonably priced hydrogen cell electric targets range, 3-5 minute fill-up

LAS VEGAS (Jan. 06, “We aren’t trying to the wheel; just everything to make them turn,” Bob Carter, senior vice of automotive operations for Toyota Sales (TMS), U.S.A. at the opening of CES, the world’s trade show. “Fuel electric vehicles will be in our sooner than many believe, and in much greater than anyone expected.”

Two shared the stage at the Toyota conference: The FCV concept, showing the four-door mid-size sedan look like in Radiant and the camouflage-taped engineering prototype for extensive and extreme on-road in North America for more a year. The prototype has consistently a driving range of about 300 zero-to-sixty acceleration of about 10 with no emissions, other water vapor. Refueling of its tanks takes three to minutes.

“Hydrogen works beautifully oxygen to create water and and nothing more,” said “For years, the use of hydrogen gas to an electric vehicle has been by many smart people as a quest. Yes, there are challenges. The first is building the at a reasonable price for many

The second is doing what WE can to kick-start the construction of convenient refueling infrastructure. We’re a good job with both and we launch in 2015.”

For the last 20 Toyota’s investment in fuel RD has been massive. Since Toyota has been testing and a series of prototypes in North In those 11 years and more a million miles it has dramatically the cost of building a fuel powertrain.

In fact, Toyota a 95-percent cost reduction in the and fuel tanks of the vehicle it launch in 2015, compared to it cost to build the original in 2002.

The FCV represents a major achievement, where the size and of its powertrain system was significantly while maintaining an impressive power output of more 100kW. A fully-fueled vehicle be capable of supplying enough to power a house for a week in an Engineers are currently looking to an external power supply that could be used in manner.

“There’s no doubt, that the of this technology will less on the genius of the car, on the ownership experience,” said “Cost is one thing, but convenience is

Focusing on California, where the will be launched initially, has partnered with the University of Irvine’s Advanced Power and Program (APEP) to help map out locations for new hydrogen fueling

The APEP spatial model a variety of data including Polk ownership of hybrid and vehicles, traffic patterns, density, and so on. The model is based on the that owners want to a refueling station within

What the model produced was an cluster map that requires 68 station sites in the San Francisco Bay and Silicon Valley, as well as Los Orange and San Diego counties. If the mapped system could a fuel cell population estimated by APEP at about vehicles.

Already, California has more than $200 in funding to build about 20 new by 2015, a total of 40 by 2016, and as as 100 by 2024. To help guide the of new stations, the APEP model is used by:

the California Energy Commission,

the Zero Emission Vehicle

the California Air Resources Board,

the Department of Energy

and the California Cell Partnership.

“Stay added Carter, “because infrastructure thing is going to

While specific sales will be announced closer to Carter said that has revised initial market and requested additional vehicles. information will be announced in the and months ahead, including sales volume targets, the of the vehicle and comprehensive specifications and data.
