On April 3, 2019, Toyota Motor Corporation announced two measures related to its patents and technical knowledge to further promote the widespread use of electrified vehicles.
First, Toyota announced that it will grant royalty-free licenses on approximately 23,740 patents it holds (including some pending applications) for vehicle electrification-related technologies. The grant period will start immediately and last through the end of 2030.
The patents included are for parts and systems, such as electric motors, power control units (PCUs), and system controls. These are core technologies that can be applied to the development of various types of electrified vehicles including hybrid electric vehicles (HEV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV), and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV).
Second, Toyota will provide fee-based technical support to other manufacturers developing and selling electrified vehicles when they use Toyota's motors, batteries, PCUs, control ECUs, and other vehicle electrification system technologies as part of their powertrain systems. Specifically, the technical support includes providing overviews of vehicle electrification systems, control guides, and detailed explanations of tuning guides for vehicles that will utilize its systems.

On March 20, Polyplastics informed that its innovative resin products DURANEX (R) PBT and DURAFIDE (R) PPS materials - targeted for engine peripheral parts such power control units (PCUs) - deliver high insulating properties and lower water absorption while meeting harsh operating conditions (-40 C to 150 C, up to 95% relative humidity).
Polyplastics' DURANEX (R) PBT CG7030 provides lower water absorption and high tracking properties (CTI: 600V) for high-voltage parts such as PCUs. Polyplastics also offers DURAFIDE (R) PPS 6150T73, which provides high heat shock resistance, strong dimensional stability, and excellent heat and chemical resistance for metal insert molded applications for electric vehicles.
Polyplastics is also exploring new materials to replace metal in PCU housings. Thermoplastics would provide lighter weight and improved productivity. However, other key requirements include strength, dimensional stability, electromagnetic shielding and thermal conductivity.

On March 9, Toyota launched the FAW Toyota Corolla PHEV, Toyota’s first NEV model for the Chinese market. Four versions are available, with suggested retail prices ranging from CNY 189,800 to CNY 212,800 (after subsidies).
The vehicle is 4,635 mm long, 1,775 mm wide, 1,470 mm high, and has a wheelbase of 2,700 mm.
It is powered by a 1.8L engine that has an output of 73 kW and up to 142 Nm of torque mated to an E-CVT (electronic-continuous variable transmission), together with a permanent magnet synchronous motor that has an output of 53 kW and up to 207 Nm of torque. It adopts Toyota’s anticipated fourth-generation PCU (power control unit) and a larger capacity power battery pack, which takes 3 hours to fully charge and supports charging from home. The PHEV has an NEDC range of 55 km and a maximum range of 985 km. It has a fuel consumption of 1.3 L/100km, and 4.3 L/100 km in the absence of an external power supply.
FAW Toyota will further explore the NEV market in China based on the launch of the Corolla PHEV. It will launch its first EV in China in 2020.
