Πλησιάζει η έκθεση της Φρανκφούρτης και η Toyota μας δίνει ακόμα μια teaser φωτογραφία από το Hybrid-R Concept, που θα παρουσιαστεί εκεί, δείχνοντας μας αυτή τη φορά όλο το αυτοκίνητο.

Το concept βασίζεται στο τριθυρο Yaris και μηχανικά χρησιμοποιεί παρόμοια τεχνολογία με αυτή του αγωνιστικού TS030 Hybrid και αποτελείται από έναν κινητήρα εσωτερικής καύσης και ηλεκτροκινητήρες, αποδίδοντας συνολικά 400 άλογα (298 kW), στέλνοντας όλη αυτή τη δύναμη και στους τέσσερις τροχούς. Μάλιστα ο κινητήρας διαθέτει δύο προγράμματα λειτουργίας ένα για χρήση δρόμου και ένα για χρήση εντός πίστας.

Το ενδιαφέρον την υπόθεσης είναι ότι η Toyota αναφέρει ότι αυτή η τεχνολογία “είναι κατάλληλη για χρήση σε ένα αυτοκίνητο σπορ”, που είναι πιθανό αργά ή γρήγορα θα ενσωματωθεί από το GT86 ή το άλλο coupe που εξελίσσει με την BMW.

Ακόμα, η ιαπωνική εταιρία θα παρουσιάσει στη Φρανκφούρτη τις τελευταίες εξελίξεις της σχετικά με τις κυψέλες υδρογόνου, πριν βγάλει στη παραγωγή το FCHV το 2015, έχοντας δηλώσει ότι μέχρι το τέλος εκείνης της χρονιάς θα έχει παρουσιάσει 16 νέα ή ανανεωμένα υβριδικά μοντέλα.

  • Toyota devotes its Frankfurt motor show presentation to hybrid technology
  • World premiere of the Yaris Hybrid-R concept
  • Latest development of Toyota hydrogen fuel cell technology
  • 16 years and more than 5.5 million worldwide sales of Toyota hybrids

Toyota will bring together its past achievements and future plans for hybrid power in a Frankfurt motor show presentation devoted entirely to its industry-leading technology. Since it introduced the original Prius saloon in Japan in 1997, Toyota has sold more than 5.5 million hybrid vehicles world wide and continues to extend its portfolio, currently offering 23 models worldwide.

Yaris Hybrid-R concept

Frankfurt will mark the world debut of the new Yaris Hybrid-R concept, created as a showcase for possible future hybrid development ideas that can deliver greater performance and driver rewards.

Based on the three-door Yaris, Hybrid-R features a 1.6-litre GRE (Global Race Engine) developed by Toyota Motorsport, combined with two powerful electric motors that give the car intelligent all-wheel drive capability. Using technology like that featured in Toyota’s TS030 Hybrid race car, energy recovered under braking is stored in a super capacitor, a unit that’s particularly suitable for use in a sports car thanks to its high power density and quick charge and discharge speeds.

The result is a highly focused machine, designed to deliver the maximum driving pleasure, both on road and track.

Fuel cell technology: next steps towards the ultimate zero-emission car

Toyota will show the latest status of its Fuel Cell Hybrid Vehicle (FCHV) technology at Frankfurt, ahead of the market launch of a production car by 2015. Toyota considers the energy and emissions benefits make this the best technology yet to deliver the ultimate zero-emission car, with hydrogen as an ideal, ultra-clean energy source.

16 years of Toyota hybrid technology

Toyota has been researching and developing environmentally efficient transport solutions for more than 40 years, building world leadership in the design and production of full hybrid powertrain technology.

It made the science a marketplace reality in 1997, when the first Prius went on sale in Japan. Since then, Toyota Motor Corporation has amassed sales of more than 5.5 million hybrids and today has a portfolio 23 different models – four times more than any other competitor – available in 80 countries and regions around the world.

Toyota calculates that its global hybrid fleet has already saved 12 billion litres of fuel and 34 million tonnes of CO2emissions, compared to the same number of equivalent, conventionally powered vehicles.

The story does not end here: by the end of 2015 Toyota will have introduced a further 16 new or revised hybrid models.

Toyota will host a press conference on its stand in Hall 8 at the Frankfurt motor show, at 12.45pm on Tuesday, 10 September.
