Isuzu Motors Limited,Hino Motors Ltd, and丰田汽车Corporation plan to strengthen their efforts to electrify buses toward the achievement of carbon neutrality by 2050. In collaboration with Commercial Japan Partnership Technologies Co Ltd which works to solve social issues through the spread of CASE technologies, they will expand their lineup to increase customer options and reduce vehicle cost, in addition to popularizing practical and sustainable electric vehicles. For further information see the IDTechEx report onFuel Cell Electric Vehicles 2022-2042.
Isuzu and Hino to begin production of BEV flat-floor route buses in FY2024
Toward the realization of a decarbonized society in 2050, Isuzu andHinoplan to begin production ofbattery自2002年以来，2024年在Isuzu-Hino合资企业J-Bus Ltd. Isuzu-Hino合资企业J-Bus Ltd.和Hino的电动汽车（BEV）扁平路线巴士自2002年以来一直在合作，并正常响应日本公交车运营商的要求。最近朝着碳中立的快速移动正在增强对零排放路线总线的需求，五十铃和海诺群岛打算响应这种需求。
Isuzu, Hino, and Toyota to begin study for the planning and development of next-generation FCEV route bus
Additionally, Isuzu,Hino, andToyotahave agreed to begin studying the planning and development of next-generation fuel cell electric vehicle (FCEV) route bus based on the BEV flat-floor route bus to be produced from FY2024.
The next-generation FCEV route bus will combine the platform of the BEV flat-floor route bus scheduled for launch in FY 2024, with Toyota's fully developed fuel cell system found in the Toyota Mirai and the SORA fuel cell bus. By sharing the same components between BEVs and FCEVs, Isuzu, Hino, and Toyota aim to significantly reduce costs, and by adopting new-generation fuel cell stacks and utilizing Toyota and Hino's FCEV bus development know-how to date, they aim to provide longer-life, higher-added-value electrified vehicles. Through this initiative, Isuzu, Hino, and Toyota intend to contribute to the realization of a hydrogen-based society in Japan, by applying Japan's strengths in fuel cell technology.
Isuzu is advancing its global environmental actions based on the "Isuzu Environmental Vision 2050" (announced in 2020), an Isuzu Group roadmap for addressing global environmental issues over the long term and securing a prosperous and sustainable society by the year 2050. Meanwhile, Hino, through its "Hino Environmental Challenge 2050" (announced in 2017), has set a goal of achieving zero environmental impact and is accelerating its efforts by additionally establishing the "Hino Environmental Milestone 2030" as an interim target in April 2021. Toyota has also formulated its "Toyota Environmental Challenge 2050" (announced in 2015), which aims to significantly reduce CO2 emissions during vehicle use and is endeavoring to develop and promote the use of electrified vehicle technologies.
