Joining the ranks of other auto manufacturers who have combined forces to enhance EV technology, Toyota and BMW have announced a plan to collaborate for the development of hybrid systems and diesel technology.

This collaboration will likely prove beneficial to both sides of the deal. BMW has been working on its hybrid technology and is known for its diesel vehicles, while Toyota has been in the hybrid game for over a decade, since it released the first generation Prius almost twelve years ago.

According to Nitro Bahn, both companies are excited about the relationship. While BMW Chairman Norbert Reithofer is looking forward to the “development of environment-friendly technologies and the expansion of sales”, Toyota CEO Akio Toyoda is especially pleased about the sharing of knowledge and cooperation between the companies.
