Toyota Motors will offer an electric or hybrid version of all of their vehicle models by 2025, company officials announced on December 18.
What’s more, Toyota officials are planning on electrified cars accounting for more than half of their worldwide sales—or 5.5 million cars per year—by 2030. The campaign will begin with the carmaker’s target market China, and will expand gradually into Japan, the U.S., and India.
Toyota leaders intend to show customers, and the world at large, that their company is committed to a clean environment by placing their focus on new hybrid electric vehicles, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles, battery electric vehicles, and fuel cell electric vehicles.
“Toyota aims to reduce global average new-vehicle CO2 emissions by 90% from 2010 levels,” according to a company press release.
In order to see this challenge through, the automobile manufacturer will begin to work with Panasonic to make “next-generation solid-state batteries” lighter and cheaper by 2020.
