Toyota Prius Plug in Prototype 2007-2010

Toyota Corporation President Katsuaki has committed the company to launching a battery Plug-in Hybrid (PHV) by the year 2010. has developed the Toyota Hybrid as a solution for lower fuel and lower emissions for the automobile The Toyota Prius was first in Japan in 1997, then in America and Europe in 2000.

A generation was introduced in 2003 and sales have increased for a total of 1,2 million units 1997 and 2008. Toyota is that by 2020 it will all models with a Hybrid Drive powertrain derivative. Synergy Drive will as a core technology applicable to all models.

The system has been specifically to be readily adaptable to use in both electric and hydrogen fuel vehicles.

Verification tests are in Japan since 2007 for a in Hybrid Prius with battery capacity ( 12 kWh rather 6,5 kWh) and an on board charging This evolution is intended to fuel efficiency by increasing the in gasoline-free full electric Yoshikazu Tanaka, PHV Chief explains: Like early developed hybrid cars, the Plug-in Hybrid runs on a gasoline powered internal engine and an electric motor.

what sets the PHV apart is the battery capacity that a longer electric motor cruising range, and a battery function that allows to recharge the batteries externally household electricity.

The present limitation for full propulsion is the high cost of the the limited cruising range on one the time for charging and the need for an of electric filling stations. has selected a gradual approach takes into account the technologies and infrastructure. The PHV solution is easy to charge from power outlet and it takes one and a to two hours to fully charge it. the vehicle at night, in countries evening electricity rates are allows cutting further the costs of the PHV. For driving of less than ten kilometres recharges, actual driving zero emissions.

The same car can also cover the with a distance of several kilometres without the necessity to be since the power train is based on the Toyota Hybrid This vehicle represents the of the automobile, a real shift in how are powered, says Yoshikazu Until now, evolutionary were made inside the but the Plug-in Hybrid vehicle is in the sense that energy can be from outside the car.

In to effectively measure the PHV’s range and battery capacity, has begun to conduct public tests in Japan, the United and Europe. One of the immediate challenge is to market trend for the EV cruising and to find optimal balance the battery capacity. Earlier were still using Metal Hydride batteries but in 2008 Lithium-ion batteries adapted. Some 500 prototypes are for public road testing. EDF company and Toyota have partnership for Plug-in Hybrid in France and the United Kingdom.

100 prototypes will be part of the years Strasbourg based PHV with innovative charging that ensures safe communication between the plug and the identification of the vehicle and automatic of electricity. A large number of points will also be in users homes, the offices of partners, in public parking and on roads. Toyota will over 500 new PHV globally including in Japan and the USA by 2010. 150 vehicles in the States.

150 in Europe, in France, the United the Netherlands and Germany.

One of t he key elements for the of a Plug-in Hybrid is the sales that customers are ready to pay for the Operating cost is reduced by the of the additional battery capacity and in charging system have to be
