Toyota branches out into ethanol

Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:39 am

Hybrid cars aren’t the only fuel-efficient concept to have grabbed Toyota’s interest.

The Japanese company, now the second-biggest automaker in the world, will come out with a car in Brazil in Spring 2007 that can run on 100 percent ethanol, as well as on a blend of gas and ethanol

The pricing and the name of the car have not been revealed yet, he added. Brazil is a natural spot to launch the car. Brazilians produce ethanol there from sugar cane, and a number of gas stations sell it.
