Toyota coming up with its own EVs in America
After years of reluctance, Toyota will be coming up with its own version of one or more battery-electric powered vehicles in North America. Yet, we don’t exactly know which vehicle it would be neither which company’s brand would do so.
All we know is that Bob Carter, head of sales for Toyota North America said so : «We’re clear, has he said in an interview reported in Automotive News, the future of this industry is electrification». Right now, the core technology of Toyota is hybrids. «But, as Carter said, we will be in the BEV (Battery-Electric Vehicle) business in the short term in North America ».
Yet the automaker will still maintain its fuel-cell technology still offering such cars as the Mirai.
