Corolla Cross H2 Hydrogen Concept Vehicle
Toyota is calling it the Cross H2 Concept and the test vehicle has been showcased at the Auto Expo 2023. The crossover comes with a 1.6-litre turbo 3-cylinder engine that uses compressed gaseous hydrogen as the fuel. The traditional IC engine produces water vapour as the exhaust which is the speciality of hydrogen cars, in general. The power is sent to the Front Wheels and there will be 2 tanks on board to store gaseous hydrogen with an operating pressure of 70 MPa. The transmission duties are carried by a 6-speed Intelligent Manual Transmission which could mean that there will be manual gearshifts without pressing the clutch.
