Toyota confirms new EV venture company for electric car push

Thu Nov 17, 2016 5:02 pm

Toyota has confirmed plans to launch an “in-house venture company” that will be responsible for developing electric vehicles. The start-up will begin work next month, and consists of just four people, each from a different branch of the Toyota group.

I read something about this last week. They were hung up on the lithium batteries but now have a grasp of what they need to achieve

Toyota EV sounds interesting. Their cars are quite cheap. It would be great if they can produce EVs in cheap ranges too.

Yes, mass production of EVs by different cheaper car brands can definitely increase their sells.

They've had a great turn around with the Prius I wonder why they haven't introduced a lot more models

I don't think Toyota's are cheaply priced vehicles, however, they do have a good name for themselves as far a quality and longevity of their vehicles is concerned. I'm not sure the car companies are that interested in the environment and becoming green. It is government standards that are being mandated that is making this type of thing a reality. I am glad for it and believe that as a society we are better off the greener we are. The Toyota brand has always been reliable and they make cars and trucks that look good so this is good news for the consumer.
