Honda chief doesn’t believe Toyota plans to use hydrogen as fuel for internal combustion engines

The source said that Honda CEO Toshihiro Mibe is skeptical about the possibility of producing cars with a hydrogen-burning engine. He said that Honda explored the potential of this technology, which Toyota is now about to implement, a decade ago. Honda considered it unpromising. Instead, the choice was made in favor of hydrogen fuel cells. Hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles remain a key part of Honda’s strategy.

Meanwhile, Toyota believes its hybrid models will remain competitive for the next 30 years alongside hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicles and continues to push the idea of ​​hydrogen vehicles.

The interest of Japanese manufacturers in the “new energy” is due to support from the state, which has made big bets on hydrogen in order to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050.

The source recalls that Honda Motor has a subsidiary for the production of jet aircraft. For aircraft, switching to a cleaner fuel like hydrogen may be a better choice.
