With all auto inventors, Toyota has a different way of examining its latest hydrogen engine – by sending it racing in the Super Taikyu Series near month. Toyota announces the move intends at being able to produce a next-generation clean engine.
For those questioning, the engine will be under the bonnet of a Corolla hatchback. Toyota announces that the construction of hydrogen engines is “an aim to move towards a carbon-neutral mobility community,” as reported by a Toyota executive.
“By setting its prototype hydrogen engine in the harsh atmosphere of motorsports, Toyota intends to add to the success of a sustainable and flourishing mobility community.”
The 1.6 liter, three-cylinder race engine moves on reduced hydrogen sourced from the Fukushima Hydrogen Power Research Field. The Japanese auto creator announced it only requires expanding hydrogen infrastructure and reviving the Tohoku region’s economy.
Toyota’s unusual action towards ‘carbon-neutral mobility culture’ might take a hit by the absence of charging stations of this kind, mainly in some countries of Asia and Europe.
However, if the largest auto giants like Hyundai, Toyota, and Kia are into this tech, we might view more of them around shortly.
