Towards the Ultimate Eco-Car

The ultimate eco-car emits no harmful emissions and has no negative impact on the environment.

If we pursue our efforts, we believe we will fulfill our ambition to create such a car. The vehicles that we make today, with their Toyota Optimal Drive and Hybrid Synergy Drive technologies, are all steps forward. But there is much more to do, and there is much more to come from Toyota.

Plug-in Hybrid

This allows battery recharging from the mains electrical supply, boosting fuel efficiency, reducing running costs and lowering CO2 emissions, particularly when the electricity used comes from renewable sources.

Electric Vehicles (EVs)

Powered by an electric motor and battery, EVs are ideal for short journeys around town. And if renewable energy is used for charging, driving is totally emissions-free. Our electric iQ concept showcases the technology in a compact package.

Fuel Cell Vehicles (FCV)

These are powered by fuel cells that create electricity by combining oxygen with hydrogen. The only by-products are heat and water. Our FCHV-adv SUV has proven the technology's strengths in real-world conditions, and sales are due to start from 2015.
