Solomon Expands Case Against Toyota to Include Camry and Lexus Hybrids
TARPON SPRINGS, Fla., Sept. 19, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Solomon Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB:SOLM) announced today that it has expanded its patent infringement case against Toyota Motor Corporation (NYSE:TM) and certain of its affiliates, for infringement of Solomon's Electric Wheel(tm) technology patent to include the Camry Hybrid and the Lexus RX400h. Solomon has previously alleged that the Hybrid Synergy Drive(r) system installed in vehicles manufactured and imported by Toyota, such as the Prius and Highlander, infringes a number of claims contained in its U.S. Patent No. 5,067,932. As a result of additional investigation into other vehicles manufactured and imported by Toyota, Solomon has determined that the Camry Hybrid and the Lexus RX400h incorporate the same Hybrid Synergy Drive(r) system and therefore also infringe the patent.
