Toyota's PIE Pro hydrogen powered pick-up makes pizzas

One-off collaboration pick-up truck between Toyota and Pizza Hut is on show at SEMA in Las Vegas

Toyota has revealed an usual pick up truck, that's debuting at this month's SEMA show in Las Vegas.

The PIE Pro is based on a Toyota Tundra pick-up truck and has been modified in order to serve oven fresh pizzas direct from its load bed, thanks to a partnership with Pizza Hut.

Described by Toyota as a “mobile pizza factory”, the PIE Pro uses a Tundra SR5 which has been stripped down to its chassis and swaps the standard internal combustion engine for a hydrogen powered fuel cell taken from the Toyota Mirai.

The pick-up’s bed has been converted into ‘The Kitchen’, a pizza factory on wheels that is capable of cooking and packaging pre made pizzas in less than seven minutes. All the equipment, including a refrigerator, computer-guided articulating robotic arms and a portable conveyor oven, can be powered using the emissions free hydrogen fuel cell, so the Pizzas should be environmentally friendly and devoid of unwanted particulate matter. 

At SEMA, Toyota will showcase the PIE Pro as well as a range of custom Corolla hatchback models plus the Supra Racing Concept that was revealed at Geneva earlier this year.
