Toyota Announces EV Plans
June 10, 2019—Instead of selling 1 million electric vehicles per year by 2030, the target year is now 2025 for some automakers, according to a report by CleanTechnica. Tesla plans to sell 1 million BEVs per year by 2021, at least 4 years ahead of Toyota. Even Volkswagen expects to reach that goal in 2022.
Other newsworthy and related notes:
- Toyota BEVs will sell in China in 2020 and other markets later.
- The 2017 master plan for 5.5 million “electric and electrified” vehicles by 2030 is now advanced to 2025.
- Half of the 1 million BEV total will be in China, the rest split between Europe and US, according to industry estimates.
