Meanwhile, Ford, Honda, Mazda, Hyundai, Volkswagen and others have turned to gasoline direct fuel injection and turbochargers. For them, those technologies were a quick, cost-effective route to better mpg.

2013 Scion iQ EV first drive — Kelley Blue Book

2013 Scion iQ EV first drive Although Toyota recently confirmed that it will be placing a major emphasis on expanding its domination of the hybrid arena in the near future, the automaker also continues to believe that battery electric vehicles are destined to play a significant role in future mobility strategies as buyer acceptance levels rise. To that end, it will introduce the new Scion iQ EV here late in 2012 and deploy it to a number of campus and urban car-sharing programs. Known in Japan as the Toyota eQ, this micro-scaled urban commuter is not destined to be one of the world’s best-selling zero-emission vehicles. In fact, Toyota will build only 100 in total with 90 heading to ...

As Nissan charges full-speed-ahead with electric vehicles having committed in excess of $5 billion so far in global RD, production, and related costs – more than GM is known to have committed – Toyota seems content to let others develop an EV market for now, and has essentially said all-electric technology is not ready for prime time. Nissan has also said its Leaf does not need liquid heating and cooling, but with dozens of reported complaints in hot states, it has now hired Volt Customer Advisory Board member Chelsea Sexton ...
