Toyota TNGA to Adapt Powertrains for Faster Product Creation

Toyota is a company known for its unexpected offerings–think back to the Lexus LFA, the first-ever attempt at a supercar and the ensuing success. The brand is quite strategic in all aspects of operations, using advanced and flexible modular platforms in order to create new models with greater ease. The upcoming Toyota TNGA platform will gear things up further, offering a strategic base from which to build future products at a reduced cost, which ultimately leads to more.

Resources could be spared at a rate of 20% or higher with the Toyota TNGA platform, freeing up funds for more development and exciting new models. While money and funding are always an issue, TNGA is driven further by efficiency and performance qualifications. Improved laser welding and a revisit to the center of gravity have molded great expectations for future vehicle capacities. This paves the way for completely new powertrains with dramatically improved fuel economy. read more
