14th Dec 2021

Toyota, the world’s largest automobile manufacturer by volume, has unveiled its electric vehicle goals with a press conference presented by the company’s CEO Akio Toyoda.

Toyota Motor Company produced 7.6 million vehicles world-wide up to April 2021 after a contraction of over 14% due to the global pandemic.

The company’s concept is ‘beyond Zero’, explained by CEO Toyoda as a goal to “not only reduce CO2 emissions and other negative impacts to zero. Our goal is beyond this.”

In addition to the bZ4X compact SUV that was presented at the LA motor show in November, Toyota unveiled additions to the bZ range, including a coupe-inspired SUV, a mid-size saloon car, a three-row large SUV and a small cross-over vehicle.

The Lexus range will also see the addition of a two-seat sportscar that should be able to reach 62mph from a standing start in less the 2.5 seconds.

Toyota unveiled seven new additional EVs including a pick-up truck (pictued above), an off-road SUV and an urban commuter micro-EV.

Toyoda summed up the company’s commitment to its extended EV range by saying:

“We are living in a diversified world and in an era in which it is hard to predict the future,” said the Toyota CEO. “Therefore it is difficult to make everyone happy with a ‘one-size-fits-all’ option.

“That is why Toyota wants to prepare as many options as possible for our customers around the world.”

These guys are in a league of their own! I just had a first rental experience with EV Hire and it was as smooth as one can imagine.
