Toyota Looks to Keep Environmental, Economic Focus
DETROIT - By beefing up North American production capacity and developing environmentally friendly vehicles that don't skimp on performance, Toyota Motor Corp. is looking to grab a bigger share of the U.S market.
The company on Tuesday announced it will offer a new hybrid powertrain in the Lexus RX 330 within the next two years. The combination of a gasoline engine and electric wheel motors gives the V-6 the power of a V-8 while offering low emissions and high fuel economy.
The SU-HV unveiled at the North American International Auto Show by Toyota for its Lexus division represents the RX 330 that will be sold as a hybrid. The powertrain will be adaptable so it can be used on other vehicles with different power demands.
