Toyota plans flex-fuel versions of Tundra, said a Japanese newspaper
Toyota plans to roll out flexible-fuel versions of the Tundra by 2008, according to a Japanese newspaper.
The newspaper did not quote any sources but said the trucks would be built in San Antonio or at the company's Princeton, Ind., pickup plant.
Toyota has been a leader in the development of hybrid gas and electric technologies. But domestic automakers Ford Motor Co. and General Motors Corp. have been leading the way with ethanol-powered pickup trucks. Ford, GM and DaimlerChrysler have said they want to increase their production of ethanol-powered models to 2 million vehicles by 2010.
Toyota plans to introduce an ethanlol-powered Corolla in Brazil, which is the largest ethanol-producing country in the world.
