Document Number: 2014-13540
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-06-11
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
In accordance with the procedures in 49 CFR part 555, Toyota Motor North America, Inc. (Toyota) has petitioned the agency for a temporary exemption from one requirement of FMVSS No. 305. That portion of FMVSS No. 305 requires manufacturers to maintain a certain level of electrical isolation (or reduce the voltage below specified levels) of high voltage electrical components of an electric vehicle (EV) in the event of a crash in order to protect the vehicle's occupants and first responders. Toyota states that a forthcoming fuel cell vehicle (FCV) model cannot meet this requirement due to certain design characteristics of their FCVs. Instead, Toyota states that it is using alternative strategies to help ensure that occupants and first responders are protected in the event of a crash. NHTSA has made no judgment on the merits of the application. This notice of receipt of an application for a temporary exemption is published in accordance with statutory and administrative provisions.
