Toyota joins Clean Energy Partnership

fchvadv

Toyota has further shown its commitment to the development of sustainable mobility by joining the Clean Energy Partnership (CEP).

As a new international auto partner for CEP, Toyota will contribute five of its zero-emissions FCHV-adv hydrogen fuel cell vehicles to CEP’s hydrogen filling station and fuel supply programme in Germany.

Tadashi Arashima, President and CEO Toyota Motor Europe, stated: “We firmly believe that fuel cell hybrid vehicles will play a major role in reducing emissions and achieving sustainable mobility, alongside petrol and plug-in hybrids and pure electric vehicles. These various applications of full hybrid technology will each play their role and co-exist in the future.”

This exciting development confirms Toyota’s aim for the commercialisation of hydrogen-powered vehicles by 2015.

  1. Can someone tell me how do you get in touch with Toyota for technical queries. The web site does not have a contact section?? Anyway great to see Toyota joining the Clean Energy Partnership. Could do with more work though. Five years ago i asked if i could get an LPG conversion for my Avensis, answer was only in France, or else my warrenty was void. So now i’d like to ask can i use bio diesel in my Avensis diesel?? Only thing is i cant’t get an answer. SAAB, Volvo, BMW, Audi, Nissan etc all say yes on thier vehicles, why not Toyota. A ittle move to make life cheaper and greener for us diesel drivers would go a long way. Come on Toyota get greener across the board….

    1. Hi again Andrew,

      I just spoke to a technical specialist who confirmed that you can use biodiesel in a Toyota diesel car produced from January 2003. However, the blend must be 5% maximum. It goes without saying that it must also comply with British and European standards.

      I’m afraid that Toyota does not support LPG conversions on any of its vehicles.

      Thanks for your question, and I’m glad you enjoyed this post.
