The Japanese automaker Toyota continues its technological strategy years after being pioneers in marketing the Prius, the first hybrid model in the market. In this line, the brand has announced that it is firmly committed to the future of cars powered by hydrogen fuel cells that only emit water vapor.
By 2025, Toyota intends to electrify each vehicle of its manufacture with some type of hybrid option. However, its objectives go further, since it considers that electric cars with batteries are not the only option to achieve a clean or zero emission propulsion. According to Andrew Lund, the brand’s chief engineer, hydrogen fuel cell technology is the cleanest-energy propulsion system that can be carried on board a vehicle.
Therefore, Toyota, in addition to its commitment to electrification, has announced a second generation of hydrogen fuel trucks with a range of almost 500 kilometers and virtually without emitting any noise. It is a continuation of the first version of the hydrogen trailer presented in April 2017.
