Toyota based on the GR Yaris has made a prototype experimental ad hydrogen, which goes to power the heat engine traditional. The hydrogen, the tanks and the refueling process of the experimental vehicle are the same as those found in the Mirai, Toyota’s flagship fuel cell electric car.
Toyota hydrogen heat engine
The hydrogen heat engine Will Toyota be the one of the future and who will save petrol engines? In fact, if in the Mirai hydrogen is used to obtain the chemical reaction in fuel cells to generate energy, in the experimental GR Yaris on the contrary it is used as a fuel to power a internal combustion engine.
The development of this engine started in 2017 but is not yet ready for commercialization.
Up to now he has equipped the prototype of Toyota Corolla, which is already providing interesting performance in the series competitions Super Taikyu in Japan, with almost zero tailpipe emissions.
Toyota GR Yaris hydrogen, characteristics
The hydrogen-powered GR Yaris and Corolla both have an engine 1.6 liter G16E-GTS inline 3-cylinder turbo, the same that comes equipped on the GR Yaris, but with modified fuel supply and adapted injection system the use of hydrogen.
Hydrogen burns to one faster speed than gasoline, resulting in good reactivity and excellent environmental performance.
In addition to being extremely clean, the combustion of hydrogen has the additional potential to convey an enjoyable driving experience, with the acoustic and sensory feel of a internal combustion.
