Toyota goes racing with Hydrogen! 

While Toyota Motor Corporation has invested heavily in becoming the global leader in hybrid technology , which is becoming more and more affordable and available locally, it has also announced that a hydrogen engine is under development.

Toyota has made it no secret that they are moving towards a carbon-neutral mobility society, and technology such as hydrogen-fuelled engines are an important step in this direction. Hydrogen can be used in two ways to generate power: Fuel cell electrified vehicles (FCEVs) such as Toyota's Mirai use a fuel cell in which hydrogen chemically reacts with oxygen in the air to produce electricity that powers an electric motor. Meanwhile, hydrogen engines generate power through the combustion of hydrogen using fuel supply and injection systems that have been modified from those used with petrol engines. Except for the combustion of minute amounts of engine oil during driving, which is also the case with petrol engines, hydrogen engines emit zero CO2 when in use.

Toyota is so confident in their hydrogen combustion engine that they have now entered it into motorsport, where it will be trialled and improved before evaluation for production. Using motorsport for testing and refining technologies is an application that Toyota firmly believes in, the latest example being the development of the GR Yaris, recently launched in South Africa.

The hydrogen-engine-powered race vehicle will use a 1.6-litre in-line 3-cylinder engine with a turbo and intercooler. It will be fuelled with compressed hydrogen produced at the Fukushima Hydrogen Energy Research Field in Namie Town, Fukushima Prefecture, Japan. The vehicle itself is based on a Toyota Corolla Sport, and it will enter in competition under the ORC ROOKIE Racing banner.
