Taking a page out of the T. Boone Pickens plan, Toyota is announcing a mass produced version of their popular Toyota Camry to run on compress natural gas (CNG). Toyota is set to unveil the CNG Camry at the Los Angeles auto show next month. Toyota has show increased interest in CNG going forward; “We are confirming our interest in pursuing CNG within our R&D scope”, says Irv Miller of Toyota. He goes on to say “With the combination of plentiful long-term supplies in North America, improved and more efficient recovery methods, favorable pricing and clean-burn, low emissions characteristics, CNG has become a prime energy source for the future”.
Currently Honda is the only car maker to offer a CNG vehicle model with its Civic GX NGV.
