Hybrid Service & Repair

Hybrid vehicle's continue to improve and with over a million prius's on the road since 2001 it seems as though every Manufacturer today has a hybrid of some kind in their model line up to offer. With technology changing so fast the early hybrids are somewhat elementary compared to today's models. Hybrids come in many different designs, for example: Series Hybrid Systems, Parallel Hybrid Systems, Series/Parallel Hybrid Systems. Then you have electric hybrid systems or plug and play systems. To fuel cell hybrids which use a chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen to produce electricity.  

High-pressure Hydrogen Tank

A 70 MPa high-pressure hydrogen tank developed by Toyota is installed in the TOYOTA FCHV-adv. The latest 70 MPa tank features a polyamide resin liner in the inner most layer of the tank due to its high strength and excellent hydrogen permeation prevention performance. Increased tank capacity and reduced weight have been achieved by using optimum materials, improving design and production methods, and minimizing wall thickness by optimizing the winding angle, tension and volume of the carbon fiber. This has contributed to significant improvement in cruising range
