Posted March 08, 2018 06:19:28 The world is in need of a powerful engine for its electric vehicles, but one that can make a more eco-friendly, less polluting, more reliable vehicle.
That’s where the Toya Electric Engine comes in.
Toya’s electric cars are the fastest-selling electric vehicles in North America.
The engine is designed to make that happen.
“Our technology is designed for the automotive industry and our mission is to provide a reliable, high-performance engine for the electric vehicle,” said Toya CEO and co-founder Kazuhiro Nogi.
Nogi and his team at Toya are the ones responsible for building the engine and the body that powers it.
They’ve built a battery that’s about the size of a coffee cup, and are using it to store energy from the battery and then convert that into electrical energy for a range of electric vehicles.
“We need an electric vehicle that will be environmentally friendly,” Nogi said.
“It will be safer than gas vehicles.
It will have better fuel economy.”
Toya is looking to partner with a company in Canada to get the technology into a production vehicle.
The company will be building a vehicle for the U.S. market.
“It will probably take about two years,” Nogi said.
Nogi hopes to begin testing the engine in the first quarter of 2019.
He estimates the vehicle will be around 40 per cent cheaper than the current model.
“This will mean a new model for the car and we will get a good price for it, especially when compared to a gasoline car,” Nagoi said of the electric-car market.
Nagoi hopes that the Toyamat engine will be a big help in the future.
“You will be able to make the next generation of electric cars very inexpensive,” he said.
“With this engine, we are hoping to become a major player in the electric car market.”
