Toyota will not switch to selling only electric cars

The manufacturer will continue to invest in other alternatives in addition to electric operation. “The lack of sufficient infrastructure is holding back the transition to electric power,” Toyota CEO Akio Toyoda said.

The Toyota bZ4X is the manufacturer’s first electric car based on the eTNGA electric car platform.

Toyota does not believe in a future where the manufacturer will focus solely on selling electric cars. Despite the fact that many competitors aim to switch to electric cars only in the long run.

Toyotachefen Akio Toyoda adheres to the fact that a continued wide range consisting of, among other things, electric cars, hydrogen cars, internal combustion cars and hybrids is the right choice, reports Bloomberg.

It was at an event in Las Vegas that Toyoda spoke to dealers about the future of the manufacturer and the strategy they will use. Toyoda believes that electric cars will take longer to adopt than the media wants it to appear.

– The lack of sufficient infrastructure holds back the conversion to electric operation and that is one of the reasons why we will not only invest in electric operation, said Akio Toyoda.

Furthermore, the Toyota manager added that the manufacturer’s strategy will continue to be to offer such a wide range of powertrains as possible.

Toyota has received some criticism from both environmental activists and shareholders where the perception is that Toyota has been late to the ball when it comes to the conversion to electric operation. Greenpeace has put Toyota at the bottom of its list of global car manufacturers vars measures have reduced carbon dioxide emissions.

But it is not an opinion as Toyoda parts, he means the manufacturer has invested in hybrids for more than two decades which he says puts the manufacturer at the top of the list when it comes to the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions from vehicles.

Last year, Toyota pledged to spend $28 billion, approximately SEK 311 billion, to roll out 30 new electric cars until 2030. Something that can be compared to Ford’s 50 billion dollars, approximately SEK 555 billion, which will be used to develop electric cars until 2026.
