The hybrid singer finally decided to pass the second on the electric. Toyota, which still markets the first hybrid vehicle, the Prius in 1997 has never shown the same craze for electric cars. This time seems to be over. The Japanese manufacturer, aware of the accumulated accumulation in this market, intends to turn the tide. That's why Toyota announced not only one but six electric vehicles by 2025.
For now, few details have been leaked about the cars that will be developed. The six concepts presented at the time of the announcement give a vague indication of the direction taken by Toyota. Thus, the Japanese plan to occupy several segments, from the SUV to the sedan through the dealership. On the other hand, what is already acquired is that these six new models will share the e-TNGA platform, announced jointly with Subaru last week.
The company's goal is to electrify half of its models within five years and significantly boost its hybrid and electric sales over the next ten years. Specifically, Shikegi Terashi, the brand's R & D manager has set the course for 4.5 million hybrids and 1 million electric by 2020. Finally, in the long run, 2050 precisely, Toyota hopes to have completely removed the one from its range , producing only 0 CO2 emissions vehicles.
