Toyota develops vehicle for use on the Moon

By Faiming_low on 09 Mar 2019 in New technology

Attached Image Toyota has been reported to be working with Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency to develop a new vehicle for use on the moon.

As reported by Sky News, the lunar rover will be used on their manned mission to the moon in 2030.

Not much is known about the vehicle and how Toyota is involved in it, but if the information is true, Toyota could become the second automaker to put a vehicle on the moon. The first lunar vehicle was produced with the help of General Motors and it landed on the moon in 1971.

Back it the day, it had four electric motors that produced 0.25bhp each and were powered by two 36 volt silver-zinc potassium hydroxide batteries. It allowed the crew of Apollo 17 to drive it for a total of 35.9 km with a total runtime of 4 hours and 26 minutes.

More details about the moon vehicle is expected to emerge in a couple of weeks' time.

Since young, Fai Ming has always centered his life around cars. In fact his first word was 'car' and not 'mum' or 'dad'. Aren't kids cute?
