Greener Toyota: 21 hybrids by and $46k eQ EV in December

Toyota launch 21 new hybrids before the end of and an all-electric compact car, the eQ, in Japan and the US later this as part of a significant investment in transportation. The roll-out will with a new 2.5-liter gas engine Toyota claims, achieves a setting thermal efficiency of and be followed by a smaller capacity, version, a Prius that can your fridge in an emergency, and a fuel-cell system in 2015.

Thermal efficiency is how much of the produced by fuel combustion gets converted to mechanical and is something traditional gasoline are particularly bad at. Toyota says its new engine should appear in in 2013, followed by a 2.0-liter version for even better in 2014.

Meanwhile, the existing PHV plug-in hybrid which at the start of this year, soon get an accessory that allow the car to provide power to devices in an emergency. The system be positioned as a way to use the Prius PHV as a standby during power-cuts, though unclear what limits might be on what can be plugged in.

Toyota will also wireless battery charging in Toyota City come using wireless coils in the road and in the chassis of the car, to see they’re efficient enough.

As for the eQ, the all-electric vehicle is based on gas-powered iQ city car, seating for four and a range of up to (62 miles) on a single charge of its new 12 kWh battery. The updated power delivers the best electric consumption rate in the world, claims, keeping bulk low but delivering usable range.

It also charges swiftly, the says, with a complete in around three hours a 200V AC outlet. That to 8hrs if you’re stuck a 100V AC connection, however, a quick DC charge up to 80-percent can be in just 15 minutes.

Toyota doesn’t talk or acceleration for the eQ, which doesn’t bode well for urban but the car isn’t really intended for use. When it hits in December it will be priced at yen (the equivalent of $46,000 in the US, it will launch as the iQ EV) and be targeted at customers rather than

Finally, Toyota says it is to launch its own fuel-cell vehicle 2015, powering the FCV (Fuel Vehicle) initially, and then up in a bus on track for a 2016 debut. The new has the world’s highest power density, Toyota claims, and can 3 kW/L which is double the company’s current prototype can

That’s despite being the size and half the weight of the prototype. It’s in part to a new boost converter, which voltage and thus allows for fuel-cells and a smaller motor: and bulk goes down, performance goes up.
