Toyota Moving Beyond the Prius: Pure EV by 2012

Toyota showed off this concept electric vehicle, the FT-EV today at the Detroit Auto Show. And while it's an adorable little micro-car concept that might never see the robovero.com light of day, they used the opportunity to promise a pure electric vehicle by 2012.

Interestingly, they aren't the only ones. Ford also promised a (very similar) BEV by 2012, with the same market (urban dwellers) in mind. Toyota hinted at a 100 mile range, the same as Fords promised BEV, but it looks as if Ford will be delivering the vehicle in a more traditional casing.

The FT-EV is based on i use it cheap fast cialis Toyota's iQ, a peppy little three-seater for young urbanites in Japan. It's Toyota's answer to the Smart Car, and the FT-EV, of course, is Toyota's answer to the electric Smart Car. Though, the Smart EV should beat Toyota to the punch by at least a year.

Toyota got it right, GM has it wrong. For a pure electric vehicle to be successful it has to be this small!

Are you serious? For any alternative fuel vehicle to be successful it has to be able to viagra side effects effectively combat the decades and buying viagra in a canadian pharmacy trillions of dollars of auto marketing spent convincing people that appearance and performance are more important than environmental sustainability.

There's a niche of http://www.pneumapaniagua.es/cialis-50-mg-tablets people who buy cars using environmental criteria. To have an impact, they need to build environmentally superior vehicles that people who don't care about global warming will still buy.

EVs can be big
written by Elepski, January 12, 2009
In fact some of the link for you price viagra largest vehicles on the planet are EV or a form of Hybrid.. and have been for decades. Currently, consumer level EV need to be small to offset the price of the battery tech. Once the battery tech proceeds and the power/size/weight/cost ratio becomes more favorable.. larger cost effective EV vehicles will become available. Now, whether or not the powers that be are investing enough into the progression of those batteries is left to debate.

This is one of the most insightful comments I've heard about changes that need to happen in the auto industry for "green" vehicles to become mainstream. Well done Drew.

Factor in externalities

"To have an impact, they need to build environmentally superior vehicles that people who don't care about global warming will still buy."

I agree that is currently the try cialis for free case - but if governments taxed in the externalities of the current status quo, people would stop caring what their cars looked like, and just be happy if they were well off enough to drive at all. If governments don't start taxing the externalities, mother nature will - but she'll probably be more harsh about it at that point.
