Toyota condemns the Electric Car

6, 2009 By Cars UK

Electric — like the Reva NXG are not a viable mass-market option.

believes that the electric car never be a mass-market phenomenon, and that the lies with petrol

I suppose we shouldn t be too surprised the company that has put all its might the hybrid car says that cars plug-ins are not a viable nor likely to be in the future. It concurrs our opinion at Cars UK Towers, but it s to see that Toyota has much the mindset as we do although not on Hybrids.

Toyota s head of RD in Europe Katsumata said in a speech the electric vehicle won t be a mass-market phenomenon, and the future at least in the coming will be petrol engine We don t see any short-term breakthrough in battery he said.

Dirk Breuer a advisor for Toyota in Germany that the energy density of battery technology made the car a non-starter for anything other city cars and commercial He pointed out that to store as energy as a 12 gallon petrol would take a battery of over 400 gallons in size. He went on to say that heating and were a major problem in cars, with heating up to 5kw and cooling 4kw even in a very car.

He also sees the infrastructure as a obstacle. Quick recharging offering a top-up in 20 minutes or cost around £30k and 50% of the electrical energy is lost in the transfer to the And home charging points are a big problem in cities as the majority don t access to off-road parking and up to 80% of in cities don t know where will park overnight one day to the next.

The next bit we re not exactly in agreement Breuer says mild offer too little for too much (which is probably true in cars, but it does work in like the Mercedes S400 and the BMW 7 Series Hybrid ) and he claims suffer from too much within the powertrain (which may be true, but we feel it is the most solution).

He also went on to add diesel engines are going to less viable with the raft of EU6 legislation. He says in order to comply with NOx and emmission requirements diesel will have to have an 11 chemical processing plant in, making them very to produce. And diesel engines cost more to produce petrol ones.

We re with Breuer on plug-in A very limited personal option. But we believe that the extender as featured in the BMW Vision ED and the XJ Limo Green are the future, at for the next couple of decades.

As for they have become a good option and they are now drivable but we have always that the big issue is with and NOx emissions. That can be addressed, but the of doing so may well sound the knell for the diesel.

The debate rolls on.
