Toyota-Honda Tie Up on Mobile Power Generation

Honda (Tokyo) — Toyota Motor Corporation and Honda R&D Co. will create a mobile power generation/output system, Moving e, that consists of a fuel cell bus that can carry a large amount of hydrogen, portable external power output devices and portable batteries, and will begin demonstration testing of the system’s ability to deliver electricity anytime and anywhere.

When a power grid is damaged during a disaster such as typhoons and rainstorms, people suffer from an interruption in the supply of power to their homes and evacuation centers. To address this issue, Toyota and Honda will bring technologies together to create a mobile power generation/output system and conduct demonstration testing of delivering electricity to people.

Taking advantage of its mobility, the Moving e can be utilized as a “phase-free” system which can be used in times of a disaster to support disaster response by supplying electricity in an affected area, as well as in normal times for routine uses such as supplying power at an event. Through this demonstration testing, the two companies will confirm the actual needs of people and verify usability of the system.

The Moving e mobile power generation/output system will consist of:

●Toyota’s Charging Station fuel cell bus
●Honda’s Power Exporter 9000 portable external power output device
●Two types of Honda’s portable batteries: LiB-AID E500 and Honda Mobile Power Pack (MPP)
●Honda Mobile Power Pack Charge & Supply Concept charger/discharger for MPP
