Toyota FCHV-adv (Fuel Cell Hybrid Vehicle-advanced) is a use of  “Toyota FC Stack” high-performance fuel cell hybrid five-seater and with our understanding of high-performance fuel cell R&D is to improve the energy efficiency and reduce carbon dioxide and other gases from air pollution.

Toyota FCHV-adv Concept

Toyota FCHV-adv fuel efficiency by 25%, and in order to improve the performance of life vehicles, Toyota has also developed the high-pressure hydrogen storage 70Mpa, to life after hydrogen charging from the extension of 2 times, and reached about 830 km alarming level. In addition, Toyota is also very cold, especially in low-temperature environment to test the performance of the FCHV-adv, and the Toyota data also showed that even at 30 ℃ environment, FCHV-adv can start and normal running . Cold zone, but also ensure that the vehicles start with the normal traffic.

Since 2006, the RX-8 Hydrogen RE for the leasing business released, in contrast to the Mazda5 Hydrogen RE Hybrid, but it is only by its rotary engine and no additional electric motor on board.

Mazda Premacy Hydrogen RE Hybrid

The Premacy Hydrogen RE Hybrid features a series-type hybrid drivetrain, which combines Mazda’s hydrogen rotary engine with an electric motor. The engine output is converted to electricity, which then powers the motor that drives the wheels. This hybrid system boosts the hydrogen fuel range of the Premacy Hydrogen RE Hybrid to 200 kilometers, twice the range of the RX-8 Hydrogen RE, and increases the maximum output by approximately 40 percent, to 110 kilowatts.

The variant of the Mazda Series Hybrid drive combines the familiar hydrogen rotary engine, the push of a button on either gasoline or hydrogen (Dual Fuel System) is working with an electric motor. The system converts the energy derived from combustion engine into electric current, then the electric motor and thereby driving the vehicle.
