Toyota Just Shared its Five-year Plan About Making Hybrids Less Expensive and More Efficient

Since 1990, when Toyota came forward with its widely known Prius, it has become the most prominent extraordinary auto-making company as compared to its rival hybrid car makers. Adding more to the praise, presently, a little more than two decades later, since Toyota made its first hybrid car sale, the company is commending 15 million hybrid sales around the world.

Beating all odds

Out of those sales, almost one-fifth of all cars have been sold all across Europe, albeit the U.K. is the potential market for Toyota’s hybrid vehicles. According to the company’s data, Toyota as moved almost 356000 units on these shores to date. It is worth mentioning here that hybrid cars make up sixty-six percent of all Toyota’s new car sales in the United Kingdom.

More to come

In Britain, Yaris has made its mark as the top-rated hybrid car, nearly surpassing the Prius according to the sales report issued by the company. Furthermore, officials from the company have indicated that the vehicle’s position is set to be solidified with the appearance of brand-new Yaris this year.

The company also claimed that the car is furnished with Toyota’s most recent, fourth-generation hybrid electric framework that will provide a more remarkable zero-outflow electrical driving ability.

Serving the environment

Just 25 years ago, it was decided by the company to make hybrid vehicles, when Takeshi Uchiyamada’s group was given the task to build up a car for the 21st century that would cause less pollution in the atmosphere.

The Prius made its appearance in 1997 but was made available for selling in Europe in 2000. According to the reports shared by a third party Toyota has as of now sold over 15 million cars, and according to the claims of the company, due to these sales, its vehicles have saved over 120 million tons of CO2 discharges and emissions in contrast to its rival petrol vehicles.

Future expectations

Toyota shared their thoughts and said that HEVs are an integral part of the future worldwide vehicle fleet, along with Battery EVs, Plug-in HEVs, and hydrogen-powered FCEVs.  According to the company’s plans, they are all set to uncover 40 brand new and updated electric vehicles by the year 2025.

These vehicles will include at least ten zero-emission cars, whether BEVs or FCEVs. Shigeki Terashi, the chief official from the TMC, said that they are trying hard to improve the battery performance and to lower the cost as low as possible, but that will happen only when they will overcome the obstacles related to BEVs and FCEVs. Meanwhile, they are continuing the similar work on HEVs.
