More facts on Toyota

  1. 1. ==== ====For part 2 of this article and to read more about Toyota and other brands visit: ====Hybrid cars are fast becoming more and more popular due to the rising fuel costs and the prices ofhybrid cars are becoming more and more affordable. The performances of hybrid cars are alsocomparable to diesel/petrol cars so there is no reason not to get it.Major car manufacturers have made claims that the hybrids are the vehicles of the future. This isdue to the demand that people are now making as a way of negotiating the overpriced gas pricesthat have risen steadily over the past few years. The hybrid vehicle is certainly the solution thatmany people have been searching.The reason why hybrid cars save fuel is because the car is not permanently running on petrol.There are times when the car is powered by the electricity from the batteries. This is the reasonwhy the consumption of gasoline is dramatically lowered thus reducing the petrol bills of theowner.The Toyota Prius hybrid car is my top pick because it offers the best performance for the price youget. It cost around $19,000 which is the cheapest out of the three. It has more horsepower at 110hp and can do 60 city mpg and 51 highway mpg. It is a family sized car which can hold 5 peoplequite comfortably with some space left in the trunk. It also get a 4.5 score for its crash test rating.For price and performance, you cant beat the Toyota Prius.Lets take a closer look at the Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive vehicles.Toyotas HYBRID SYNERGY DRIVE is the new type of power train that combines the strongattributes of two kinds of power sources: the electric motors and the gas/petrol engine. HYBRIDSYNERGY DRIVE delivers world class performances in terms of the fuel efficiency, low emissions,drive ability and quietness desired of cars today.The HYBRID SYNERGY DRIVE power unit integrates the strong elements of an electric motorsand a gas/petrol engine. It is not merely a package that has an electric motor and a gas/petrolengine on board. Toyota applied cutting edge technologies based on our latest research tointegrate the dual power sources in the most ideal way.There are other models called "hybrid vehicles" in existence, but Toyota is fully confident that ourHYBRID SYNERGY DRIVE is the most advanced hybrid powertrain in the world. In fact, HYBRIDSYNERGY DRIVE is one of the very few systems in the world in 2005 that fully complies with theUNs definition of a "hybrid vehicle".At least two different energy converters and two different energy storage systems
  2. 2. In 2003, the UN defined a "hybrid vehicle" as follows: "A hybrid vehicle is a vehicle with at leasttwo different energy converters and two different energy storage systems (on-board the vehicle)for the purpose of vehicle propulsion."HYBRID SYNERGY DRIVE carries a gas/petrol engine and electric motors as energy convertersand a gas/petrol tank and battery as storage systems, thus satisfying the UN definition.There are several ways in which electric motors and a gas/petrol engine can be combined.HYBRID SYNERGY DRIVE uses what is called a "Series Parallel Hybrid System". This is an idealcombination of the "Series Hybrid System" that Toyota has been developing and the "ParallelHybrid System", which has a different approach. HYBRID SYNERGY DRIVE takes the best ofwhat each system has to offer and integrated them into a single system, the best of both.By adopting the "Series Parallel Hybrid System" and incorporating cutting edge technologies,Toyota has improved and developed the powertrain, electricity generation and control systems. Asa result, we are offering many benefits never before possible with a conventional powertrain.HYBRID SYNERGY DRIVE makes intelligent selective use of its electric motors and gas/petrolengine to deliver fuel efficiency comparable to cars of one class smaller in enginedisplacement/body size, and at the same time the power comparable to cars one class larger.HYBRID SYNERGY DRIVE delivers the highest level of fuel efficiency for cars of the same-sizeengine displacement.Although HYBRID SYNERGY DRIVE delivers outstanding fuel efficiency, it also offers drivingperformance, the original appeal of cars. In particular, "the seamless acceleration", "powerful takeoff and overtaking acceleration" and "undiminishing G-force" are new driving sensations which canonly be experienced with a hybrid car.HYBRID SYNERGY DRIVE pursued outstanding fuel efficiency with the goal to reduce CO2emissions, and also realized a significant reduction in emissions of other substances in its exhaustgas.For example, Prius not only complies with the worlds most stringent regulation, "AT-PZEV(Advanced Technology Partial Zero Emissions Vehicle) Regulation" of the State of California ofthe USA, but it also complies with "EURO-IV" regulation implemented in EU from 2005.*Highlander Hybrid has also been certified "SULEV" compatible, meeting the most stringent ofCalifornias automobile exhaust emissions regulations "LEV II".All the models equipped with HYBRID SYNERGY DRIVE, including the two models mentionedabove, have cleared the stringent exhaust gas regulations enforced in various countries of theworld.Quiet running is one of the benefits of electric motors powered HYBRID SYNERGY DRIVE -- forinstance, early in the morning or late at night through a residential area. You can even movequietly in and out of a parking garage, where sound is often amplified.One example is our Fuel Cell Hybrid Vehicle (FCHV) that was released on a limited distributionbasis in Japan and the U.S.A. in 2002. It employs a FUEL CELL, in which electricity is producedby allowing hydrogen and oxygen to react chemically. We delivered a very clean car that only

It aims to achieve optimal total energy efficiency byoptimal management of the combination of two or more of viable powertrains available at the time.It holds endless potential that extends to the following generations, far into the future. Our goal isto take hybrid technology to the next phase of its evolutionary progress and to disseminate itthroughout the world.If you are looking for Toyota Hybrid vehicles within the Toyota Detroit Michigan market you canfind them at Rinke Toyota.
