Toyota, the Japanese auto major, claimed this week that it will roll out over 10 battery electric cars by the beginning of 2020s commencing in China, with India to be amongst the initial markets in addition to Europe and the U.S. apart from its home ground. The firm claimed that it plans to trade over 5.5 Million electrified cars, comprising over 1 Million zero-emission cars BEVs (battery electric vehicles), and FCEVs (fuel cell electric vehicles) by the end of 2030.
Declaring its 2020–2030 strategies for popularization of electrified cars, Toyota Motor Corp. claimed its plan aims on an important pace in the launch and development plans of PHEVs (plug-in hybrid electric vehicles), HEVs (hybrid electric vehicles), FCEVs, and BEVs. The electrification will be all over the complete Lexus and Toyota line-ups, it claimed. “Toyota will pace the popularization of BEVs with over 10 BEV models to be all over the world by the beginning of 2020s, commencing in China, prior to making an entry into other markets. The gradual launch to India, Japan, Europe, and the U.S. is anticipated,” the company claimed to the media in an interview.
The FCEV collection will be extended for both commercial and passenger cars in the 2020s, it claimed further. The firm added that by end of 2025, each model in the Lexus and Toyota line-ups all over the world will have an electrified option or will be obtainable as a devoted electrified model. “This will be attained by raising the quantity of devoted PHEV, HEV, FCEV, and BEV models and by generalizing the accessibility of PHEV, HEV, and BEV alternatives to all its cars,” it claimed.
Consequently, no models will be designed without an electrified iteration, it claimed. Toyota has already declared strategies for collaboration with neighbor Suzuki Motor Corporation to roll out electric vehicles.
