Toyota Working on Car Powered by Solar Energy

According to the Nikkei Japanese newspaper, Toyota is working on a compact-car that will be partially powered by solar energy. The newspaper said that it will be years before the Toyota’s green car ever makes it to the markets but Toyota is quickly looking for means to differentiate itself in the green car market.

Nikkei said that Japanese automaker is currently working on an eletric car that is getting it’s power partially from solar cells and will later create a similar model which will use only it’s solar power cells, mounted on the roof of the vehicle.

While Toyota forecasted its first operating loss in 70 years last month, it is still the leader in green technology and Toyota executives have emphasized that they will not cut back on environmental research despite the company’s financial troubles.
