Toyota Prius, Hydrogen Combustion Engine Possibility – Technology

Toyota He will do everything Save internal combustion engine technology. To achieve this goal, and to face with greater calm the reduction of global emissions from the automotive system, Engines that run on hydrogen instead of petrol are constantly being tested, And hopes customers can place a safer and financially cheaper version soon.

The first step in this strategy was accomplished through the track process (and still going on). The Toyota Corolla Super Taiku with the above technology is in the race for the championship., And to test the possibilities, President Akio Toyota (albeit nicknamed ‘Morriso’) drives around. But after the first tests, what happens? A few weeks ago, Forbes announced that Toyota was preparing to release the fifth generation Prius; By the end of 2022 it will do so. It may be a petrol-electric hybrid, but according to Carscoops The second variant (It will be delivered in 2023) This will connect the internal combustion engine to the hydrogen. It will basically be a hydrogen-powered PHEV, which is scheduled to be produced only after 2025.

Unlike the fuel cell powertrains used in the Toyota Mirage, converting a combustion engine from gasoline to hydrogen mode is not that complicated, even with a battery and two electric motors combined. The prototype of the engine fitted to the racing Corolla, in particular, Toyota GR Yaris is based on a 1.6-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine, With many modifications that make it possible to use compressed hydrogen as a fuel. On the Corolla, the presence of four carbon fiber hydrogen tanks located at the rear should not be underestimated. Thanks to the track, Japanese brand safety systems design well for both decay tests and tests for sophisticated refueling stages.

Toyota says the engine is very responsive, Combustion of hydrogen occurs at a higher speed than gasoline. Therefore, this car retains most of the features of petrol-powered cars, but does not emit CO2. Unfortunately it is not completely clean: In fact, NOx emissions from oil must be recorded.

Choice Prius It is clear that the first pillar of this ‘new’ technology: with the storage of ‘mechanical’ components already incorporated in the manufacturing process, the car will be a great choice for a large customer base given its low cost compared to electricity.
