Representatives of three Japanese brands held a press conference, during which they announced that they plan to join forces in creating units in order to speed up development, optimize the electrification process, and also reduce production costs. The main goal of automakers is to create universal internal combustion engines that will be compatible with several types of fuel – mainly carbon-neutral ones.

The company’s engineers will work on branded engines, each of which will reflect the brand’s concept. For example, Toyota is developing new in-line fours, Mazda is relying on rotary engines, and Subaru continues to improve boxer units. During the conference, Mazda representatives showed a new line of rotary engines for electric cars. Units not connected to wheels are designed to charge batteries.

Toyota has found a way to preserve sports cars with internal combustion engines Porsche believes that the European Union will change its mind about banning internal combustion engines In the USA, the average annual mileage of electric cars and cars with internal combustion engines was compared

The result of cooperation between Toyota, Mazda and Subaru should be a new generation of engines that can run on liquid hydrogen, bio- or synthetic fuel. These engines will be more compact than the current ones, which will allow us to completely reconsider the layout and, for example, change the design for the sake of aerodynamics. But the matter will not be limited to internal combustion engines alone, and the partners will jointly develop electrical systems, from electric motors to batteries. At the same time, despite common efforts, all three companies will continue to compete with each other.

At the beginning of February, Toyota announced that it was working on a new line of internal combustion engines. At the same time, representatives of the Japanese brand said that electric cars were overpriced.
