If we talk about hybrid vehicles and ask anyone to go near us which brands are that manufacture this type of cars probably only appoint Toyota. The Japanese car maker has achieved a milestone in the automotive sector and not it is to be a reference in terms of hybrid technology. Your banner is the Prius and now that its range is much more wide is redirecting its efforts commercial towards another type of energy.
The Japanese firm has to his credit several hybrid models (not to mention your brand premium Lexus, that much of their models are driven by this technology) and has become a favorite of the public throughout the world. However would be willing to its technology hybrid could get to more brands in order improve the environment and reduce of step the pollution that emit them cars.
With this movement industrial Toyota also would be doing that its technology is sold to more brands and with it its cost of development also would decrease of form sensitive. This is very simple as to the have more brands riding his system hybrid more units has that manufacture and more low is the cost unit of development and production.
Therefore all the world would gain of produce is this opening technology. According to Toshiyuki Mizushima, Chief of development of engines of Toyota, want to approach is to more brands to globalize the use of it technology hybrid. For which they would be thinking about working with its suppliers to make it easier to share certain mechanical parts without affecting the cost of research and development increased.
Be as is the idea of Open a technology to brands rival not is new in the sector since Tesla also it is practicing. However it is something very positive for the industry since without a high investment in mechanics brands can launch hybrid more than reliable and very efficient.
Congratulations on this initiative Toyota.
