Toyota Motor Corp goals to introduce 10 new battery electrical car fashions by 2026, a senior government mentioned on Friday, because the Japanese automaker seems to catch up in electrical autos.
Toyota may also arrange a brand new, specialised unit to give attention to battery EVs and is concentrating on annual manufacturing of 1.5 million battery-powered automobiles by 2026, Hiroki Nakajima, the corporate’s chief know-how officer, mentioned at a briefing.
The rise would mark a pointy upturn from Toyota’s present ranges of electrical autos.
The automaker, the world’s largest by gross sales, has pushed again towards criticism it has been too sluggish to embrace battery-powered autos. Toyota argues that a mixture of choices – together with gasoline-electric hybrids, makes extra sense for its international buyer base.
