As the Wall Street Journal reports, "People involved in the auto industry are largely a silent majority," Toyoda said. "That silent majority is wondering whether EVs are really OK to have as a single option. But they think it's the trend, so they can't speak out loudly. Because the right answer is still unclear, we shouldn't limit ourselves to just one option."

Although that sentiment is controversial, it merits consideration. All-electrics amount to only a fraction of the total new car market, which leaves the market open for another kind of vehicle, which is the direction Toyota has chosen. Let's take a closer look at this type of engine, the hydrogen combustion engine, and see why Toyota executives think it can potentially make EVs obsolete.

Updated October 19, 2023: With Toyota quickly developing hydrogen vehicles across its global production line, there are pros and cons to the technology. This post has been expanded to reflect that, as well as insight into what the future could be for hydrogen/fuel-cell


Toyota’s Hydrogen Combustion Engine Has The Potential To Make EVs Obsolete

The quest for alternative fuel sources has captivated the automotive industry, and Toyota's recent patent for a water-cooled hydrogen combustion engine throws open a new chapter in this dynamic narrative. This innovation signifies a bold departure from the dominant electric vehicle (EV) narrative, venturing into the uncharted territory of high-performance, clean-burning hydrogen engines.

Unlike its fossil fuel counterparts, hydrogen burns cleanly, producing only water vapor as a byproduct. However, hydrogen's appeal extends beyond its environmental credentials. Compared to batteries, hydrogen boasts a significantly higher energy density, translating to extended driving ranges and rapid refueling times.

Yet, harnessing the potential of hydrogen isn't without its challenges. Building a robust hydrogen infrastructure remains a daunting task, with hydrogen refueling stations lagging far behind their gasoline and EV counterparts. Against this backdrop, Toyota's new technology emerges as a beacon of hope. The key features of this innovation – strategically placed water injection valves, dual injection timing, and evaporation management – represent a significant leap forward in tackling the inherent heat challenges of hydrogen combustion.

By dynamically regulating engine temperature through precise water injection, this technology unlocks the potential for high-performance hydrogen engines.
