Toyota hybrid race car cooks breakfast
To present its regenerative braking technologies to your public still largely unsure on how hybrid vehicles work, Toyota lately cooked break fast for 171 individuals with its TS040 racecar.
The stunt, called Toyota Barista, encouraged 171 individuals (celebrities?) in to a chamber lined with tables, espresso pots, toasters and skillets. Subsequently its 1,000-hp Le Mans racer pulled in to the chamber with motorist Kazuki Nakajima behind the wheel.
Each of the cooking contraptions were subsequently "linked" to the racecar, which hastened on a rolling dyno to what, in line with the display, was 176 miles per hour in a virtual lap around Sarthe Circuit.
6 million joules are produced each lap of the 24 hour race. In contest, this might be produced kept in onboard capacitors and fed straight back to the powertrain for additional rate when needed. But in the event that you selected to prepare breakfast with that electricity instead, you would get 171.4 glasses of of espresso, 83.3 pieces of toast, and 57.7 fried eggs.
Certainly, it is only a marketing stunt, but itis a smart demonstration of how regenerative braking functions for less technically-minded auto buyers.Read Source
