To the Editor:
REGARDING 'Industry hesitates on 42-volt' (May 20 issue), when writing an article about a certain subject, we would expect a deeper investigation into that subject. However, the article states: 'The first 42-volt systems are not expected on production cars before 2006 at the earliest.' That shows a major failure in the knowledge of this subject. The first production car in the world equipped with a 42-volt power system has already been launched. It is the Toyota Crown Mild Hybrid and it has been on sale in Japan since August 2001.
