Toyota to showcase its multi-technology approach to sustainable mobility at Cenex LCV2022

1 September 2022

Toyota will present its multi-technology approach to cleaner mobility at the Cenex LCV2022 (low carbon vehicle) show, taking place at the Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire on 7-8 September.

The two-day event is a showcase for the UK businesses and organisations which are leading the way in developing new technologies and building awareness of and confidence in a new generation of low and zero emission vehicles.

Toyota’s stand will give visitors a first-hand insight into the company’s global technology-neutral approach to future sustainable mobility with a display of its hybrid electric (HEV), plug-in hybrid electric (PHEV), battery electric (BEV) and fuel cell electric (FCEV) models. With this broad-based approach to vehicle electrification, Toyota is better able to meet the different mobility requirements of a wide range of customers, helping accelerate the reduction in vehicle carbon emissions and progress towards the goal of zero carbon.

The models on show include Mirai, the world’s first production hydrogen fuel cell saloon. Powered by electricity generated on board in its fuel cell stack, Mirai produces no emissions when driven other than pure water. On a full tank it can cover up to 400 miles; refuelling is accomplished in just a few minutes.

Corolla Commercial is Europe’s first full hybrid electric van, developed and built by Toyota Manufacturing UK in Derbyshire. It is a practical, capable and affordable proposition for businesses who want to reduce their carbon footprint but are not in a position to move to an all-electric model.

The RAV4 Plug-in is a PHEV version of the world’s best-selling SUV. It benefits from a quarter of a century of Toyota vehicle electrification knowhow to provide a zero emission driving range of up to 46 miles. When its battery is depleted, it automatically operates as a self-charging hybrid, maintaining low emissions and fuel consumption – a unique advantage over its PHEV competitors which default to their internal combustion engine alone.

Toyota’s latest BEVs are represented by the Proace City Electric and the all-new bZ4X mid-size SUV. Proace City Electric has a range of up to 168 miles on a full charge and can carry loads up to 800kg, making it strong zero emission proposition for urban deliveries. The newly launched bZ4X is the first model in Toyota’s new bZ – Beyond Zero – sub-brand, built on a new vehicle platform dedicated to BEVs.

Together, these vehicles demonstrate Toyota’s vision for sustainable mobility in which a range of powertrains are available to suit different applications and requirements. Since the introduction of Prius, the world’s first mass-market hybrid electric vehicle, in 1997, Toyota has sold more than 20 million hybrids worldwide. It calculates the cumulative impact of these vehicles has saved more than 160 million tonnes of CO2 emissions.
