  • Micro-Hybrid Vehicles In Japan 2 comments
    Sep 29, 2012 11:03 AM | about stocks: AXPW

    During the Dynamic Charge Acceptance workshop that preceded the European Lead Battery Conference we received a handout prepared by CSIRO that summarized micro-hybrid vehicle offerings in Japan. I was quite surprised at the number of different vehicles that were being offered with stop-start as either standard equipment or an option.

    The following table summarizes the number of stop-start vehicle offerings from each of the Japanese manufacturers, and breaks the total down by standard equipment or optional equipment.

    Manufacturer Total Standard Optional
    Toyota 8 4 4
    Honda 4 3 1
    Nissan 4 3 1
    Suzuki 7 5 2
    Subaru 5 4 1
    Mazda 5 5 0
    Mitsubishi 4 4 0
    Daihatsu 7 7 0

    The three page handout from CSIRO has been uploaded to my Dropbox. -

    Hope at least one of them knows the merits of PbC and wants to provide their customers with quality products. And it seems to me asian OEMs move faster.

    Well Bugeye, we know that at least one Asian automaker (either Toyota or Hyundai) is fast tracking the testing of the PbC based off of BMW's testing success.
