Toyota launch first of its kind Flexi-Fuel Strong Hybrid Electric Vehicles (FFV-SHEV) project in India
Toyota has started the Flexi-Fuel Strong Hybrid Electric Vehicles (FFV-SHEV) pilot project in India as part of its future aspirations for a sustainable society. The Toyota Corolla Altis FFV-SHEV, which was imported from Toyota Brazil for this endeavour, was introduced by the business.
The project is the business's initial step in introducing and developing ethanol awareness. Furthermore, TKM and the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, inked an agreement of collaboration. In accordance with the agreement, the Indian Institute of Science will get the collected data in order to carry out a more thorough investigation of the well-to-wheel carbon emissions of FFV and FFV-SHEV in the Indian context.
Five months earlier than expected, India allegedly blended 10 percent ethanol. By implementing a 20 percent ethanol mix in gasoline by 20252026, the amount of gasoline produced will be reduced by around 86 million barrels. Additionally, it's anticipated that the program would help save Rs 30,000 in foreign exchange.
