Honda creates a demand-port change map for brand-new EVs. Toyota has revealed plans to build hydrogen gas-cell pickup trucks and is ready to buy its biggest U.S. port “off the grid.” And would more than 4 out of every 5 new EVs sold in North Dakota actually need to be refuelled with petrol? right here at Green Auto Stories, plus more.

Toyota is developing its own gasoline-cell technology for its massive Extended Seaside port as part of a distributed hydrogen programme, which is a rather all-encompassing solution for cutting its energy use and emissions. The process, which starts with piped-in agricultural methane, not only reduces dependency on grid electricity but also produces hydrogen for port semis and new Mirai gasoline-mobile vehicles coming at port as well as drinking water for washing cars and trucks.

A hydrogen gas-mobile electrical pickup truck was also introduced by Toyota; it was based on the Hilux, the Tacoma’s closest competitor in the U.K. market. Despite the fact that it is only a prototype project that is partially financed by government funds, Toyota claims that this sort of truck may be released in the following ten years.

The deadline for implementing Tesla NACS charging has been specified by Honda. And that implies, it would appear, that dealerships will need to support the CCS standard in the very first EVs entering the next year, even though those vehicles arriving a year later in 2025 would have a different NACS charge port.

According to a study released this week by J.D. Power, the adoption of EVs is also becoming increasingly polarised by state, with EVs becoming far more popular in states that have encouraged their use through regulations and incentives. It predicts that by 2035, EVs will surprisingly be a minority in states like North Dakota due primarily to this passion.
