Toyota, Mazda, Subaru, Yamaha and Kawasaki have announced a partnership to jointly explore the viability of alternative green fuels for cars and motorcycles with internal combustion engines, including hydrogen and synthetic fuels derived from biofuels. extend the life of internal combustion engines.

Toyota and Mazda will develop a 1,500-horsepower Skyactiv-D engine that will consume next-generation biodiesel. Specifically, Mazda will participate in the ST-Q category of the Super Taikyu Race with the Mazda Spirit Racing Bio concept Demio that consumes next generation biodiesel.

Toyota and Subaru will use biomass-based synthetic fuels in next year’s Super Taikyu Series, with the two companies competing in the GR 86 and BRZ races. Yamaha and Kawasaki will do joint research on the evolution of hydrogen engines for motorcycles.

The announcement was made at a racetrack in Okayama, western Japan, where Toyota is racing there in a hydrogen racing Corolla driven by Toyota chief Akio Toyoda, along with other Toyota drivers. The five companies announced that they will participate in races using carbon-neutral fuels.

Converting internal combustion engines to green fuels such as hydrogen is technologically difficult, experts say. However, if it succeeds, it will allow companies to support decades-old supply chains that employ hundreds of thousands of workers who would otherwise have to leave as they move into electric vehicle manufacturing.

As governments and international organizations tighten environmental regulations to reduce carbon emissions, automakers are increasing production of electric vehicles. Japan has stated that it intends to be carbon neutral by 2050 and is promoting the use of hydrogen fuel.

Toyota plans to build 15 all-electric models by 2025 and invest $ 13.5 billion over the next decade to expand battery capacity. At the same time, however, it continues to develop hydrogen-powered vehicles.
