Electric Vehicles - for shorter distance mobility
Toyota believes in the feasibility of EVs as a primary mode of
transportation for shorter distances, and a mid term solution
towards sustainable mobility.
Electricity has high potential as an alternative energy source to
oil. It can be supplied easily, and produced from renewable sources
such as solar, wind and hydro-electric power.
Toyota has been strengthening its knowledge and engineering
capability in the field of electric vehicles, and continues develop
short range EVs for commercialisation.
On stage at the 2010 Paris Motorshow, the FT-EV II concept is a
compact EV with a top-speed of 100 km/h and a driving range of
over 90 km. Toyota plans to launch a lithium-ion battery equipped
EV in the United States in 2012.
