In 2015, Toyota announced its Global Environmental Challenge 2050, which aims to contribute to the creation of a ‘futuristic’ sustainable society in harmony with nature. To this end, Toyota has set itself six challenges, the first three of which include goals to achieve carbon neutrality throughout the lifecycle of its products by 2050. Toyota’s aim is not only to address the impact of its vehicles, but to cover the entire value chain, including manufacturing activities.
Toyota has developed all clean technologies and believes in introducing many green energy pathways in electricity and alternative fuels based on each country’s unique needs and context, to minimize the use of fossil fuels. Coin and carbon reduction can be achieved in the fastest time. Ethanol has tremendous potential for India as it is an indigenous and clean energy source, which can significantly reduce fossil fuel consumption, energy import bills and carbon emissions. Being based in agriculture, Toyota wants to use ethanol as a fuel that will increase the income of farmers and create new jobs, thereby boosting the rural economy. The government has recently introduced second-generation technologies to produce ethanol from agricultural residues such as straw, which are currently otherwise burnt. This prospect will not only prevent serious air pollution but also help generate wealth from waste. Toyota can benefit from these and multiply by introducing Flexi Fuel Vehicle (FFV) technology, which can flexibly use higher ethanol blends from 20% to 85%.
Brazil has already introduced Toyota Brazil’s Flexi fuel-efficient hybrid electric vehicle technology (FFV – SHEV), which has the lowest wheel-to-wheel (W2W) carbon emissions of any technology in the country. Is. During the launch of Toyota’s first-of-its-kind pilot project on Flexi-Fuel Strong Hybrid Electric Vehicles (FFV-SHEV) in Delhi, the Toyota Corolla Altis FFV-SHEV, which was imported from Toyota Brazil for the pilot project. The unveiled FFV– SHEV features a Flexi Fuel engine and an electric powertrain, thus providing the dual benefit of higher ethanol consumption and greater fuel efficiency, as it can run for significant periods of time in its EV mode, which The engine shuts off. This project can play an important role in the development and introduction of flex fuel technology in India.
