Toyota Manager Discusses Future in Advanced Powertrains


How Toyota is hybridizing the automobile in an efficient and affordable way to increase America’s energy diversity is the topic of “Pathway to Sustainable Mobility,” a presentation by Justin Ward, advanced powertrain program manager for Toyota’s Gardena plant. The April 28 program is the last in a series of seminars on the subject co-sponsored by Cal State Fullerton, its Mechanical Engineering Department; UC Irvine; SAE International; and General Motors Advanced Technology Center.

Toyota believes that hybrid vehicle technology is a key enabler for sustainable transportation systems and plans to offer vehicles with a number of advanced powertrains. Engineers are addressing the remaining technical hurdles for such advanced powertrains, according to Ward, who will bring a hydrogen-powered hybrid vehicle, the Toyota HCHV-adv, to the presentation.
