It goes without saying that electric and hybrid cars will be major players in the coming years and as one of the world’s largest car manufacturers, Toyota doesn’t want to be left behind. The Japanese behemoth has confirmed that it’s going to electrify its entire car lineup by 2025. This means that all of the cars it sells by then will have either an all-electric or a hybrid option.
Toyota sent out a press release today pledging that its entire fleet will be available in electric or hybrid options by 2025. It’s also hoping that its electrified models will account for more than half of its sales by 2030. It has a volume target of nearly 5.5 million electric cars annually.
The company has promised that by 2025, it’s going to develop any Toyota or Lexus-branded vehicle that doesn’t have a “dedicated electrified model or have an electrified option.” Toyota says that it has produced over 11 million cars so far that use electric technology in one way or the other.
Toyota is also planning to offer more than 10 different all-electric cars for sale starting from 2020. China will be the first target market for these cars before they’re launched in other markets across the globe. The electric range will then be expanded to Japan, the United States, Europe, and India gradually.
