Toyota Geneo Hybrid in Real Action
Toyota Geneo is a the world first diesel-electric hybrid vehicle. Anyway it’s a forklift, not a car. Powered by a 2.5-liter diesel engine mated up with a 26 kW electric motor and nickel metal hydride battery pack, the Geneo-Hybrid forklift is capable of lifting 3.5 tons and reportedly uses 50-percent less fuel with an equal reduction in carbon emissions.
This GENEO-HYBRID will cut CO2 emissions and fuel consumption by 50% while delivering the operational performance of an equivalent conventional diesel-powered forklift. The result is a lift truck that provides both improved environmental performance and economic benefits for customers due to lower fuel costs.
Toyota Industries Corporation (TICO) launched this model in December 2009
