IS CONVERTING EXISTING PETROL AND DIESEL CARS TO HYDROGEN GATHERING PACE.

Toyota’s solution is to convert existing vehicles to carbon-neutral propulsion – either by converting them into full electric or with a hydrogen engine.
Toyota has shown how it’s done at the Tokyo Auto Salon where the automaker showcased two AE86 Concepts. One’s all-electric while the other is powered by hydrogen. Dressed up with the iconic black and white body, the hydrogen-powered AE86 H2 Concept was equipped with two Mirai-sourced hydrogen storages positioned in the trunk. The four-cylinder engine under the hood came with modified fuel injectors, fuel pipes, and spark plugs to meet the specifications of the hydrogen system. The Toyota AE86 BEV Concept, on the other hand, used an electric motor sourced from a Tundra hybrid, a battery pack from a Prius plug-in hybrid, and components from other production Toyota and Lexus models. Surprisingly, it came with a manual transmission.
