In this video you can see the new lunar electric rover of JAXA and Toyota

Even with the limited amount of energy that can be transported to the Moon, Toyota and the Japanese space agency (JAXA) have decided to accelerate studies of a pressurized moon rover which uses electric vehicle technologies with fuel cells to conceive a total lunar surface cruising range of more than 10,000 kilometers.

You can see it in the following video.


It is a six-wheeled vehicle that looks like a van, and has the ability to deploy a large solar panel on one side to recharge the batteries. According to the president of JAXA, Hiroshi Yamakawa:

Manned rover with pressurized cabins are an element that will play an important role in the full exploration and use of the lunar surface. For this, we would like to concentrate the technological capabilities of our country and carry out technological studies.
