Toyota has announced its new battery electric vehicle plans that will mark the coming period.
According to the statement, an important electric vehicle attack begins with the strategy announced to the whole world at the press conference held by Toyota President Akio Toyoda.
At the meeting, 16 all-electric models were shown, representing future vehicles, including the all-new bZ4X, and preparing for market launch.
President Akio Toyoda also announced that they aim to achieve annual sales of 3.5 million battery electric vehicles globally by 2030. Offering more than 100 only internal combustion engine, hybrid, plug-in hybrid and fuel cell electric models globally, Toyota operates in 170 countries and regions. Having invested approximately 1 trillion yen in the past 26 years, Toyota has produced more than 19 million batteries. Toyota also announced its decision to increase its investment to 2 trillion yen for more advanced, high quality and more accessible batteries.
In addition to battery electric vehicles, Toyota continues to develop alternative solutions such as fuel cell hydrogen powered vehicles and hydrogen internal combustion engines. The vehicles exhibited at the meeting gave clues about the ever-expanding bZ (beyond Zero) product range. The product range, which started with the bZ4X, will gradually expand globally. The new bZ series models that will join the bZ4X will consist of options such as bZ's compact crossover model, bZ compact SUV, bZ Sedan and bZ large SUV, and will expand the bZ product range in all areas.
Toyota will also expand its fully electric product range with life style products. These will include electric sports cars, off-road vehicles, pick-up models and commercial vehicles. As part of this strategy, Toyota plans to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 100 percent in new vehicle sales in Western Europe by 2035.
