Toyota Plans Three New EV Models

By Staff Writer February 11, 2021

Toyota Motor North America announced plans to debut three new electrified models – two BEVs and a PHEV – in the U.S. this year.

“We continue to be leaders in electrification that began with our pioneering introduction of the Prius nearly 25 years ago,” said Bob Carter, Toyota executive vice president of sales. “Toyota’s new electrified product offerings will give customers multiple choices of powertrain that best suits their needs.”

Toyota has over 40 percent share of the total alternative fuel vehicle market, which includes a 75 percent share of the fuel cell market and a 64 percent share of hybrids and plug-ins. By 2025, Toyota’s goal is to have 25 percent of new-vehicle sales be electrified models, and by 2030 expects that to increase to nearly 70 percent.

Globally, sold Toyota hybrid vehicles have prevented an estimated 139 million tons of greenhouse gas (GHG) from entering the atmosphere. In the U.S., we have avoided approximately 38 million tons of GHG. This achievement is the result of Toyota’s long-standing commitment to the environment and creating a net positive impact on the planet and society.
