Toyota and Kenworth have taken the wraps off a collaboration that will see the two companies jointly developing 10 zero-emission trucks powered by Toyota's hydrogen fuel cell energy storage technology. The partnership between Toyota Motor North America and Kenworth Truck Company will see 10 of Kenworth's T680s injected with a similar hydrogen energy storage, fuel cell, … [Read more...] about Toyota Partners With Kenworth To Develop Next Generation Hydrogen Trucks #CES2019

Electric trucks are a hot topic these days. Elon Musk says the Tesla Semi will be shown publicly on October 26. It will have a range of 200 to 300 miles, according to reports. Musk says interest from the trucking industry is so strong, most company executives only ask how many can they get and how soon can they get them. Cummins announced earlier this month that it also is hard … [Read more...] about Nikola Motors And Bosch Team Up For Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Trucks
This story about the Alt Car Expo for EV automobiles was first published on CleanTechnica The Santa Monica Alt Car Expo is consistently packed to the brim with useful people and experiences, which makes it one of the best events at promoting EV culture, including plug-in and alternative fuel vehicles. Year after year, I look forward to attending to not only see and drive the … [Read more...] about Alt Car Expo Introduces SoCal Residents To EV Culture
The Honda Clarity is to Honda what the Hyundai Ioniq is to Hyundai — a single chassis that can accommodate several different powertrains. For Hyundai, that means a hybrid, a plug-in hybrid, and a fully battery-electric version built on the same platform. For Honda, it means a fuel cell, a plug-in hybrid, and a fully battery-electric version are available, all based on the same p … [Read more...] about Honda Clarity PHEV And EV Debut At New York Auto Show
Good news, hydrogen fuel cell fans. You can lease a Toyota Mirai -- if you live in southern California and within 25 miles of a functioning hydrogen refueling station -- for just $499 a month. You can also lease a Hyundai Tucson FCEV for $499 a month. Now, Honda says its new hydrogen fuel cell powered sedan, the Clarity, will lease for "under $500 a month." How much you want to … [Read more...] about Honda Announces Prices For Hydrogen Powered Clarity
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F3DfryeUUuU The electric car revolution promises a sharp decrease in the amount of carbon emissions added to the atmosphere by automobiles. But there is one remaining problem at the moment. All around the world, much of the electricity used to recharge our beloved electrics and plug-ins is generated by burning coal or other fossil … [Read more...] about Quant Salt Water Powered Car Ready For Production
I've been planning to write this article for months. Maybe a year? Toyota has been perhaps the most anti-EV mass-market car company out there by some standards (perhaps excluding Fiat due to Sergio Marchionne). As I noted yesterday, its foray into plug-in electric cars was essentially the lamest of all, bringing a Prius Plug-in to market that just has 11 miles of bat … [Read more...] about Is This Why Toyota Is Really So Anti-BEV?
A team of scientist in England have proposed a new idea that involves getting hydrogen from ammonia to power fuel cell cars that could cut costs and make hydrogen fuel cells much more viable, reports The Engineer: The science behind their idea is old, having first been discovered by British chemist Arthur Titherley in 1894. His process reacts ammonia with sodium to produce … [Read more...] about Hydrogen From Ammonia – Will It Work?
As part of the 2010 Olympic Games in British Columbia, the city of Vancouver added 20 hydrogen fuel cell powered buses to its transportation system. The $90 million worth of hydrogen buses were paid for in part by grants from the Canadian government and were intended to showcase Vancouver as a modern city in tune with a sustainable world. After all, we know the only thing that … [Read more...] about Vancouver Ends Hydrogen Bus Program Amid High Costs
This is not going to be your typical “Chris complains that hydrogen cars are inefficient and silly” story. No, today I want to take some time and complain about the Toyota’s seeming lack of enthusiasm for its own product. The Toyota Mirai has managed to take a technology a lot of people should be excited for, and made it boring. These videos are a perfect example of how it seems … [Read more...] about The Biggest Problem With The Toyota Mirai? It’s Boring
