In the United States, a number of companies have developed power packs for their vehicles.
These include Ford, which announced a new version of the Power Pack concept in 2015; GM, which released a new Power Pack in 2020; and Tesla, which is now working on a similar pack.
In Japan, Taha has produced the TAH4 power pack, and it will go on sale in 2020.
The company’s chief engineer, Toshiya Takayama, told The Lad that it is the first hydraulic power unit to be designed from the ground up, and that it allows for greater efficiency and lower maintenance costs.
Taha says its new power pack is the result of a partnership with the Japanese government to help it develop a national standard.
It says the unit has a range of 100 km (62 miles), with a range-topping charge of 2,000 kW.
Taha also claims the unit can be used on a range between 200 and 1,000 km (125 and 565 miles).
“The Power Pack was designed from ground up to be an affordable power pack for Japanese drivers,” Takayami told The Beat.
“We believe it is a great step towards making our country one of the leaders in the world for electric vehicles.”
Taha is also developing the TPS1, which it says will be a larger-capacity version of its Power Pack.
It plans to produce a large-capacity model for export to the United Kingdom and Europe, and plans to launch it in 2021.
Tahoe Power, meanwhile, is also working on its own power pack that is meant to compete with the Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid.
TPS 1, which the company describes as “the world’s first electric vehicle,” is expected to go on display in Tokyo in 2021 and will be powered by the TPA-600 engine.
