Toyota To Launch 10 Electric Vehicles From 2020 Onwards


Toyota targets 50 per cent of its global sales from EVs by 2025

  • Will introduce 10 EVs from 2020 onwards, consisting of SUVs, crossovers, sedans and an MPV.
  • Will partner with battery manufacturers CATL and BYD.
  • To partner with Subaru to develop an AWD electric crossover on the e-TNGA platform.

Toyota has had some valuable experience in the world of electric vehicles. The Japanese carmaker began the electrification of its vehicles with the petrol-hybrid Prius being one of the first commercially launched fuel-cell vehicles. It was followed by the Mirai, running on hydrogen. While Toyota pioneered hybridisation in the automotive industry, it hasn’t had a proper crack at a fully-electric model yet. Now, however, it looks set to change that with the introduction of a new lineup of electric vehicles under its 2025 roadmap. 

From 2020 onwards, Toyota will introduce at least 10 BEVs (Battery Electric Vehicle). Out of these, six will be underpinned by an electrified version of the TNGA platform called the e-TNGA, which will be sold globally. The new lineup will consist of SUVs, MPVs, crossovers, and a sedan. 

With its new emphasis on EVs, Toyota aims to sell up to 4.5 million or more hybrids and plug-in hybrid vehicles along with 1 million fully-electric and fuel-cell cars by 2025. This equates to around half of its global sales. And thanks to this aggressive approach, it expects a high demand for batteries with better durability, life and reusability. Toyota will be partnering with battery manufacturers BYD as well as China’s CATL to help achieve its targets.

Toyota will also partner with Subaru to co-develop an AWD electric crossover which is likely to be one of the six models to be announced. Its partnership will extend to the creation of the e-TNGA platform as the architecture for its future electric vehicles. The new platform is expected to support front-wheel and rear-wheel drive as well as all-wheel drive with a variety of motor configurations.

Toyota is also working on a compact EV with the collective partnership of Suzuki and Daihatsu. Stay tuned to ZigWheels for the latest news on Toyota’s future electric vision.
