导读:丰田汽车和福特汽车周一表示,两家公司将合作开发使用混合动力卡车和运动型多功能车(运动休旅车,SUV),并准备在十年内向市场推出这些汽车。

“开发混合动力车有助于双方在未来数年达到美国严苛的燃油经济性标准”,丰田研发副主管Takeshi Uchiyamada和福特产品开发主管Derrick Kuzak表示。

福特汽车执行长穆拉利也在声明中表示,“这是针对全球重大挑战而展开的合作,为解决能源独立及环境可持续性发展的问题。”

与此同时,Kuzak表示,目前两家的合作仅限于后轮驱动混合动力车、车载电话、导航和娱乐系统方面。未来,两家公司将制定更详细、全面的协议,预计在2012年公布更多相关情况。

Toyota Motor Corp and Ford Motor Co will work together to develop hybrid trucks and SUVs that will be ready for market by the end of the decade, the two companies said on Monday.

Ford and Toyota plan to collaborate on product development for the future rear-wheel drive hybrid vehicles, as well as for telephone, Internet and entertainment systems.

Developing the hybrids will help each automaker meet stringent U.S. fuel economy standards in coming years, said Takeshi Uchiyamada, vice president for Toyota research and development, and Derrick Kuzak, Ford's product development chief.

There are no plans for collaboration beyond rear-wheel drive hybrids and on-board phone, navigation and entertainment systems, Kuzak said.

Toyota has been the world leader in hybrids since it introduced the Prius sedan in 1997. It has since sold 3.3 million hybrid vehicles. led by the Prius, which like most fuel-efficient cars, has front-wheel drive.

Rear-wheel drive vehicles in the U.S. market include sports cars and high-performance sedans.

"This is the kind of collaborative effort that is required to address the big global challenges of energy independence and environmental sustainability," Ford Chief Executive Alan Mulally said in a prepared statement.

Toyota President Akio Toyoda, also in a prepared statement, said the tie-up "should also become an important building block for future mobility in the U.S."

While Toyota has led in hybrid sales, Ford has been a leader in pickup trucks, which are predominately sold in the United States and Canada. Its F-series pickup trucks have been the best-selling vehicle in the U.S. market since the 1970s.

The two companies will work on the details of a fuller agreement expected "sometime in 2012" that will lay out more specifically how they will collaborate, Kuzak said.

Costs and scope of the collaboration have not yet been worked out, Uchiyamada said, adding it was too early to tell if one company may bear more of the costs.

Uchiyamada led Toyota engineers in developing the Prius.
