Next Toyota Prius Future Promise

Posted on Sep 7 2013 - 12:42pm by Admin

For its next Prius, Toyota promises to further improve the fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 10%. Some of the Japanese manufacturer announced to achieve its objective technologies.

“For years, that figure Prius leader in reducing emissions, the average rate has dropped by about 10% at each of its three generations. Now the challenge is to keep up the motivation and no shortage Toyota! ” Thus, the Japanese manufacturer announced its target for the next generation of its hybrid star, the Prius. Today credited with 3.9 l/100 km on average in the European approval NEDC, it should rise above 3.5 l/100 km for the next version.

To achieve its goal, Toyota plans to work on all points. Everything starts with a unique platform. Tnga called (for Toyota New Global Architecture), it aims to meet the needs of all markets in which Toyota operates. It will therefore serve as the basis for many models, as is the case with the MQB platform within the Volkswagen Group or the EMP2 PSA. With this new platform, Toyota hopes to improve on-road handling with a low center of gravity and improved rigidity.

From the point of view of style, too, the new Prius should clearly stand out from its predecessor. If Toyota has so far revealed no picture, he speaks of a “completely new style.” In fact, this will result in enhanced livability and further optimized aerodynamics (as a reminder, the current has a drag coefficient of 0.25, compared to 0.22 for the Mercedes-Benz CLA 180 BlueEfficiency, holder record in this regard). The interface will also be reviewed.

However, it is the mechanical standpoint the most remarkable innovations appear. Regarding batteries, Toyota promises increased energy density. That is to say, they take up less space and are lighter for the same capacity. However, the Japanese manufacturer voluntarily remains unclear as to the nature of the batteries for the next Prius. Nickel-metal-hydride as the present? Or lithium-ion battery as the Prius + and Prius battery? The mystery remains.

Toyota also announced work on other types of batteries in the future. It is thus a question of solid electrolyte batteries, like the LMP battery Bolloré Bluecar. Lithium-air batteries are also being studied in collaboration with BMW. They implement a reaction between the lithium ions in the electrolyte and suspended in the oxygen in the outside air, which acts as a cathode. Marketing still requires a lot of focus. Finally, Toyota thinks replace lithium, expensive but very high reducing power, by other elements such as magnesium, which have a low prevalence synonymous with strong reducing power.

Who said said hybrid engine. Toyota also plans to move the Prius on this point. The current four-cylinder already has an excellent yield of 38.5% for a petrol engine (averaging blocks of this type are around 35% against 45% for diesel), because of its long stroke of the cycle Atkinson and continuously variable transmission that can approach as much as possible to its point of optimum efficiency. For the next generation, Toyota announced a 40% yield, without specifying the technologies implemented.
