  1. 1. TOWARD THE U LTI M ATE ECO- CAR Toyota Powertrain Technology for Sustainable Mobility
  2. 2. 2
  3. 3. MAKING THE WOR LD GR EENER, ONE ST EP AT A TIME T oyota believes in doing what we can “today for tomorrow”. That belief led to the launch in 1997 of the world’s first mass-produced gasoline-electric hybrid car, the Toyota Prius. The Prius was more than just a revolution in powertrain technology. It also catalyzed a revolution in consciousness. Sustainable mobility would never again be merely a dream. It was 3 achievable … if automakers, consumers and governments wanted it to happen. Here are the many ways Toyota is working to make the dream come true.
  4. 4. INNOVATION FOR SUSTAINABLE MOBILIT Y B y providing freedom of mobility for people and goods, automobiles make people’s lives more convenient and fulfilling. But automakers have a responsibility to minimize the negative impact of automobiles and help achieve sustainable mobility. Powertrain innovation can contribute to this endeavor in three ways: 1) by improving fuel efficiency, 2) by making exhaust emissions cleaner and 3) by supporting energy 4 diversification. 1) Greater E F F I C I E N CY – Since humans learned to harness fossil fuels to operate machines, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has steadily risen. Toyota is developing more efficient automobile engines and transmissions to help control CO 2 emissions and mitigate the dangers of global warming.
  5. 5. Powertrain innovation can contribute to sustainable mobility in three key ways. 5 2) Greater C LE A N LI N E S S – 3) Greater D I V E R S I T Y – In Japan and many other countries and regions, air quality As the world’s energy needs escalate, automotive fuels will has steadily improved since the early 1970s, thanks to also have to diversify in response to soaring petroleum prices, technological innovation, often in advance of regulatory concern about depletion of petroleum reserves and other changes. However, there is still room for improvement. The pressures. Alternative fuels, such as biofuels, hydrogen and entire Toyota Group is working toward this goal. electricity, hold promise for the future.
  6. 6. EF FICIENCY T ransportation accounts for about 20% of the world’s CO 2 emissions from energy sources, so it is critcal for the auto industry to reduce CO 2 emissions. As an automaker, Toyota is striving to raise fuel economy and thereby help control CO 2 emissions. Hybrid technology is a core technology in this endeavor. Worldwide CO2 emissions by sector — 2004 Other Household 7.0% 12.6% Power 40.4% generation 19.5% Transportation 20.5% Source: IEA/WEO 2006 Industry

  10. 10. EF FICIENCY Expanding hybrid popularity Environmental performance without sacrifice Toyota’s hybrid system, as implemented in the Prius, is a new type of powertrain that combines the Fuel efficiency Low emissions advantages of two kinds of power sources: the electric TOYOTA’S HYBRID TECHNOLOGY motor and the gasoline engine. The result is world- Driving performance Quietness class performance in terms of the fuel efficiency, clean emissions, driving excitement and quiet operation Toyota’s hybrid technology simultaneously achieves outstanding environmental performance and driving performance desired in today’s motor vehicles. 10 In May 2007, global cumulative sales of Toyota hybrid vehicles topped the 1 million mark. Over the 10 years since the Prius was launched in 1997, Toyota hybrid vehicles have produced approximately 3.5 million tons less CO2 compared with the same class of gasoline-powered vehicles of similar size and driving performance (according to Toyota calculations).

  12. 12. CLEA NLINESS C leaner emissions can be achieved in several ways: by burning conventional fuels more efficiently, by implementing technology that removes noxious substances, and by using energy sources that are clean-burning or that do not “burn” at all. Toyota’s policy for emissions reduction is to take appropriate measures based on assessment of the urban environmental conditions in each country and each region.
  13. 13. Toyota technology to improve air quality Even cleaner gasoline engines The “clean diesel” challenge Though much progress has been made in gasoline A major challenge for improving air quality today is engines, Toyota keeps setting its sights higher. Through cleaning up diesel engine exhaust gases.

Other emissions are carbon the NOx/HC of other cars of the same class equipped with monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and hydrocarbons emissions control devices.* (HC).* Hybrid technology addresses this issue in three * For Prius of 1,260kg or less kerb weight, driving under specifi c testing conditions. ways: (1) outstanding fuel efficiency, to use less fuel and thereby produce less CO2 and other emissions; (2) cleaner combustion, to suppress generation 15 of CO, NOx and HC; and (3) by employing various devices to clean the exhaust gases. As a result, hybrid technology achieves exhaust emissions that are among the cleanest in the world. * CO2 is recognized worldwide as a factor in global warming; CO/NOx can be harmful to health if inhaled; NOx/HC are factors in the production of photochemical smog; NOx is one of the substances in acid rain.
