Is Toyota late to EVs?

Update: On January 26 2023, Toyota announced that CEO and President Akio Toyoda would step down in April and assume the role of chairman of the board.

Environmentalists and electric vehicle advocates are accusing the world's largest automaker, Toyota, for dragging its feet, and even opposing electrification. But Toyota, which sells 10.5 million cars a year in 170 countries, argues that many of those markets aren’t ready for electric vehicles.

The company announced a $35 billion investment in EVs in December 2021 along with an investment of equal size in hybrids and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. As of early 2023, the company sells only one electric vehicle, the bZ4X, which it has only sold in small quantities. It has, however, said it is planning to release 30 EV models by 2030, which would be a quarter of the total number of models it currently makes.

Will it be able to catch-up with the rest of the world, or is Toyota actually in the driver’s seat by going slow in EV adoption given how small the global market share is in total vehicle sales?

The problem as you said is that for CNBC, the world means US and Europe but for Toyota, the world includes the 150 or so remaining countries.

Toyota: issues with electric cars are battery life and recharging time, that's why I don't want an electric car. Toyota knows its customer's needs. That's what you call customer service.

You do realize that if there is no electricity there are no gas pumps as well, correct? But you can easily add solar to any location for a fraction of the cost of a gas station -- not to mention running grid lines to such a location. And charging locations with solar and battery storage are beginning to ramp up everywhere, meaning those won't need a grid soon. Do you think Toyota has given even a moments thought regarding that? Good luck competing in those less developed locations 10 years from now where people can charge their vehicles with the sun they get plenty of every day.

Excellent video. one of the things I think that you failed to recognize in your video is the fact that in 2023/2024 many more manufacturers are jumping into the game with low price entries to the EV markets. I'm sure that Elon had counted on this eventual competition materializing and as you stated in the video the the premiums were captured by Tesla while they could, but now that the competition is materializing they want to remain competitive and therefore are drastically reducing their prices to do so. The premium EV Market is established and we know who the players are. However the race for the mid-level and entry EV Vehicles is now on and Tesla wants to capture a lot of that base.

@daniel halachev Actually, the core component of an EV is not much more complex, with cooling being the most complicated part. That's why a smartphone battery company is the biggest EV producer now. That is the whole point, EVs are simpler and easier to produce. And no, EVs do not lose half their charge or heat up dangerously. Consumers ARE choosing between EVs and ICE cars and EVs are growing fast. We don't have to talk since EVs are selling out everywhere already. The problem for Toyota is not that ICE cars are losing though, but they are not growing. The last thing a company wants to do is to be in a shrinking market. Unfortunately, fuel cell cars are also not selling.

"Toyota, which sells 10.5 million cars a year in 170 countries, argues that many of those markets aren’t ready for electric vehicles" If Toyota went all EV, they truly would be abandoning a lot of developing nations with no hope of building up electric infrastructure by the time the rest of the industry transitions. They are the backbone of many commercial and domestic fleets

I've driven a 2005 Toyota Boon for a decade or so, and at 35mpg+ all this time, with little emissions and no oil burning, I'm delighted with the company. Where I live, EVs are not practical, as there are zero charging stations, and there won't be any for the foreseeable future. I suspect most of the world (at least in the global south) is in the same gas-driven boat.

Exactly, anyone who knows anything about cars would know Toyota probably makes the most fuel efficient cars in any category. All these rating agencies look at is the overall electric car production, not the overall efficiency of the products. Ford who likes making gas guzzling vehicles should be rated the worst.

@mag steel "The city life I described growing up is what living in New York City is like." Actually, I took your descriptions as accurate. I've only ever visited (once) and yeah, it was readily apparent that life there would not be for me. Genuinely curious: I wonder what percentage of vehicle-traffic there has only one or two people in it, and what percentage is some sort of mass-transit... bus, elevated, whatever. I mean... a dense population coupled with moving people around on pavement, in steel cages carrying only one or two people just can't work, right? Especially when you have a traffice signal every what... 500 feet? And mix that with pedestrians? Pedestrians and vehicles (of any sort) should never (IMO) be moving on the same level. Especially someplace like NYC. The closest thing I have to subway experience would be trains in Tokyo, so my NYC subway "awareness" is limited to movies, news clips, etc, but I understand what you're saying about a desire to avoid them. That said, I've spent a stretch of my work life bussing about twelve miles (of mostly Interstate) commuting from a satellite city into the inner city I worked in. As all in-town traffic (especially having to mix/compete with cars), that would've been abyssmal. But you're right, I don't live in-town, and wouldn't, at least here in any major city in America... unless I lived within walking distance of virtually everything I needed to do. I guess what I'm asserting is that we (as a society) need to do three things: - Stop spewing crap into the air with pollution-based-vehicles (and garden tools and generators and on)... - Find a way to make (or perhaps re-design) our existing cities move people around safely and efficiently without stealing pointless commute-hours from their lives Cuz our effect on climate change sucks... and is quickly getting suckier.

Toyota doesn't focus too much about first mover advantage. It focuses on being the most reliable and durable car in any engine type be it hybrid or internal combustion. If Toyota decides to take on the EV market with full speed it's because they are confident that it will be the most reliable and durable in that segment too. That's Toyota's DNA and it's worked very well for them and their customers. This is from a business and customer satisfaction point of view.

@Wayne Lewis VM is way different than Toyota. Besides their own EVs, they own many brands that feature full EVs -- Audi, Porsche, etc. Of all the legacy auto manufacturers, they are second only to the Hyundai/Kia/Genesis group as far as EV innovation and ramp up is concerned.
Brian Hutchinson

That's an interesting way of putting it, but Toyota didn't dive in because they are not interested in electric vehicles. They are trying to find a way to push their hydrogen fuel cell vehicle but there is a problem. There is no nationwide support for hydrogen fuel stations. They get a new CEO that's completely back peddled and will go all in. Remember what happened to Nokia, blackberry HTC and other companies that didn't change. The end result they will fall from grace or will not be here in 5-10 more years.

Pollution based vehicles eh? As long as EVs don't make pollution in developed countries, it's ok to shift it to the impoverished ones, stripping them of their resources. I don't think there will be a one size fits all solution. I can't imagine a farmer in rural Kansas has time to wait for their tractor to charge when the amount of work leaves little room for down time.

@Dynasty "you're saying is an average Joe car shop wouldn't know how to" With no reference from you about what comment of mine you're talking about, I'm gonna guess that it's the one where I called b.s. on your having seen "so many Teslas at one of the local car repair shops near where I work". That about right? I'll resist the temptation to echo your "numbnutz", though you clearly don't know what you're talking about. EVs *aren't* just another car, but they don't have to be spaceships to be totally significantly unlike the legacy autos most mechanics can work on practically blind-folded. A mechanic who's honed his skills on making the engine in, say, 911s sing is gonna open up a Taycan and pretty much say wtf. Being able to troubleshoot an ICE vehicle to determine why the lights won't come on, or why the electonic injectors are mis-behaving, etc... *is* gonna be different from tackling the high-voltage (and dangerous) systems associated with the charging, battery conditioning, power delivery, etc of an average EV. *Can* an ICE vehicle mechanic acquire the specialized knowledge to work on those? Of course. In much the same way he or she acquired some of the more specific knowledge required to work on various "new and different" ICE vechicle systems over the years: Training. But if you saw a single - even one - Tesla at some random shop near you, I'll repeat that it's *real* hard to imagine that that would've been for anything more than windshield work, tire change, maybe brakes, etc... all the vanilla stuff that *is* common to both EVs and ICE vehicles. That, or they had a Tesla-trained mechanic at the shop.

@Dynasty "failing batteries alone will create issues in the industry going forward" That's certainly an issue to be addressed. Then there's the massive climate change impact of fossil-fuel use (in all of its forms), which we desparately need to abandon in its entirety.

@StreetFighter2116 Lol, you wanted it cheap. Exactly which brand new Toyota is $5K? Remember, used EVs go even cheaper, so don't say used Toyota are cheap. EV drivetrains are also inherently more reliable since they have very few moving parts, with far less maintenance required.
W Gemini
W Gemini 11 dias atrás
@StreetFighter2116 Wuling EV Mini is about $5K. But long before it, even cheaper low speed EVs were popular in China. And long before that, electric bikes and scooters were popular. You really have no cheaper choice than EVs if you want to go faster or get more protection from the elements than a bicycle. Of course, a bicycle is really a better choice if you don't need to go that fast, but didn't want to walk. BTW, no, not everyone needs to use EVs, they can walk, bike or take public transits. Those are all preferable to EVs, especially long range western EVs which are wasteful and oftentimes unnecessary.

@fridge magnet That is the point, EVs are lot less complex. When you talk about Toyota quality, it's really about the most complex part of the car. Toyota has its share of problems from paint to rear view mirrors, but as long as the drivetrain is solid, it's worth the other cost cuttings. And it's very hard to get the ICE drivetrain reliable as it is very complex with tons of moving parts. EVs changed that. Now it's basically a smart phone on wheels. Most problems are app issues, the drivetrain for most EV builders nowadays are fairly solid since there's nothing to it. That is why there are so many Chinese EV makers yet they still don't know how to build good ICE engines. I have no doubt Toyota WILL build the best EVs, but drivetrain quality discrepancies will be small. When the barrier of entrance to a market suddenly drops, older companies are at a disadvantage. Newer companies don't have the pensions, debts, old factories, conservative executives etc... It also means innovations will be a lot faster. I guess we will see, but unless Toyota catch up soon, their stock valuation will be low as they don't have much to grow, but a lot to lose.

Will those who live in apartment buildings have to line up for hours to get a spot at a charger since it can take an hour or more to get the car fully charged 2) I doubt that our power grind can handle everyone charging a car when everyone’s fridge gets less cold in the summer when the ac’s get plugged in. Parts of our power grid are also reliant are fossil fuels 3) they don’t shoot flames

From a UK point of view we are starting to see people finding out that EV's aren't working for them and are trading in their EV's once their three year finance deals are up to either hybrid or conventional internal combustion engine cars. They have found that the battery range the manufacturers state for these EV's in the brochure aren't true, they have had many faults with the cars breaking down due to computer issues (some due over the cloud to updates) and the charging infrastructure, even though it has been increased, is still hopeless when the chargers don't work and the electricity prices in the UK have increased like they have across the globe and charging a EV is more expensive than a combustion engine car (solar/wind charging is only a possibility in the UK if you have deep pockets to pay for installation and the solar/wind power systems). Toyota are wise to stay as they are. The hybrid side does work and with the development of clean synthetic fuels it could mean that hybrid could still be a viable option for people who want to drive long distances.

Honda *so* let us down in that way. Borrowed enough to make my son's eyes roll, and bought a Tesla. I'll probably never look back or buy anything else... or at least never buy from a company trying to perpetuate pollution-based vehicles while feigning an interest in EVs.

Given the current battery supply chain shortages, it is important to note that using ~100kwh of battery material to get 4 people driving Toyota PHEVs is better for the environment than 1 person driving a 100kwh BEV and the other 3 driving an ICE vehicle.

Because he still works for Toyota, and it’s not like they replaced him with an all electric aficionado… The replaced him with the head of Gazoo Racing, you know, Toyota’s majority ICE based racing division? Based on what they’ve said, Toyota wants to expand and become more than just a car company, they want to become a transportation company, what that entails I don’t know, but a transition in the head of the company doesn’t necessarily mean it’s in dire straights.

I think the popularity of EVs are actually what will boost Hybrid sales, especially the non-plug-in ones. As other countries take a while to get charging infrastructure out, and just generally having a different lifestyle than those who originally designed them, people will lean to electrification via Hybrids which improve fuel efficiency thus cost. Charging wont be free, but finding that balance of electric and fuel efficiency is there with Hybrids

Toyota is working on a solid state battery (leads in patents) that should be out in the next few years. Those will be placed in hybrids first to test then I'm sure they'll systematically roll them to plug-in hybrids then EV's. If they hit their goal with the SSB (~350mi per charge) all of this criticism will fade. Until then, I'm all for their hybrids, and when I finally get solar added to the house I'll move to 1 plug-in and 1 EV.

@Griffin S There isn't really any meaningful competition with Tesla other than BYD (who I think will be the volume leader). Rivian, Lucid, GM, Ford and others, make a fraction of what Tesla makes, both in sales volume, margin and profits. They are all struggling to make the EVs they make, even Ford just yesterday stated that it won't be profitable until 2nd Gen of their EV lineup. What many Legacy Auto Makers are starting to realize, is that EVs require a different skill set than what they have in their system. Lucid is really struggling on all levels and may not survive (you heard it here first). Rivian will make it, but they won't be a threat to anyone for sometime. They are struggling to make vehicles and have their technology work. The other big problem for Rivian is is costs, it is really hard to control costs, while developing the company. As for Tesla and their stock price, they have a lot of runway. The company has high margins, vertically integrated, strong demand and outstanding technology. More importantly they are nimble and have a diverse product offering. In fact Tesla's Energy Business is about to shock the market in the next little while. Tesla Energy has a 2 Year back log and growing. Tesla can Make a $2 Million Megapack in minutes. This is a crucial item for Renewable energy and 1 of many products Tesla will be releasing. In terms of EV adoption, we have just passed the "First adaptors" stage and are starting to enter the Mainstream. This is where it will get interesting, because no one other than Tesla and BYD are setup for Mass Production. Most are not planning it till 2027, that gives Tesla / BYD 5 years of free air. When investing in any company, it isn't where the stock has been that matters, it is where the stock is going!!!!
Tone Mês atrás
@Griffin S OK, we have a little misunderstanding. When I say that Toyota is running out of time, that isn't an opinion I came up with. Toyota feels that they are running out of time, in the sense that they are slipping behind the other competitors. You are totally correct that they need ICE sales to fund their transition, no one is questioning that. What I was questioning was their strategy, which is putting them in a weaker position. Some at Toyota have stated that EV adoption happened much faster than they thought was possible. Secondly, they thought that other options would be given equal influence, but BEV had dominated the market. Fuel Cell which was their alternative is dying a slow and painful death. They put much energy into it to try and keep it alive but it is on life support. Then they thought they could leap frog the competition in BEVs with a Moonshot... Solid State Batteries, this was also a miscalculation because the technology will take much more time and may not be cost competitive with existing Batteries. Next Toyota realized that BEVs require a completely different platform than ICE and that set them back even more. Let's not forget that Toyota is the most in debt company in the World, so it is in a tricky position. Then it has a huge workforce that will need to retrained and will need to move on, this is a huge undertaking... even for an adapt company like Toyota. Now all this is happening while companies like Tesla and BYD are gaining strength day after day. To be specific about timing and why I feel they are running out of time, is that their planning for the future, will not meet the numbers that Tesla is making today. You see there is a deadline 2035. There are a few countries that plan to ban New ICE sales by 2035. I know this may be fancy on their part, but EV adoption may make it so that a Ban isn't needed, the consumer will talk with their $$$.

@dzcav3 If you have a tesla model 3, supercharging should get your car out in about 45 minutes, maybe 1 hr. The cool thing is, Teslas are really smart and the car will tell you how long you need to stay at the supercharger, what stalls will be available, itll obviously route you to superchargers and will do pretty much all of the planning for you. Youre never gonna find yourself in a situation where the car is dead unless youre really trying to run down the battery till its flat. Basically if you want a road trip EV, id suggest getting a tesla, but there are other great alternatives with long ranges. But for a daily car, something like a nissan leaf should offer good enough range.
TheDumbConspirator Mês atrás
@dzcav3 On a really cold day, the worst case scenario is 220 miles. Youll most likely get 250-300 miles unless your 1000 mile road trip takes place in iceland or russia. Believe it or not, cold range also affects gas cars too actually, some gasoline vehicles get up to 30% less range, this isnt something that only affects EVs. I mentioned it and ill mention it again the vast majority of people dont drive 220 miles day in and day out. So even worst case scenario of 220 miles, for a daily vehicle you should be good.

@Patrick Sweeney Toyota sold 10.5 million cars last year (2022) so they're providing what their customers want for now. The EV market, while growing, is still undergoing a need for better infrastructure and overall lower costs. Toyota I think has this pragmatic look at BEVs but realizes that their platform doesn't have the cost benefits of Tesla's so they'll benchmark Tesla to see at least some of what can bring their platform's cost down. But their mutli-platform choices are a good idea IMO. I think Toyota remains near a top player but they may not offer the leading stats or the most competitive stats on BEVs until late in the decade. But their reputation for quality, durability and reliability have a lot of car buyers sold on the brand. The one thing they have to look at is maintenance cost of the hybrids vs. BEVs. If it is lower on BEVS, then they'll need to think of ramping those BEVs up.

@SSD none of this is true. Lithium is a common element on Earth and batteries can be very easily recycled and are already being recycled. EVs are carbon lighter than an ICE car after less than a year.

The world's biggest and best will yet come out with breakthrough technology while CNBC hasta go back to KG to get their spelling right. Doubt whether CNBC has its finger on the pulse of the industry or emerging technology.

no, and I would like to enforce my opinion by educating you with: -the fact that we can't dispose lithium batteries, nor can they biodegrade -lithium mining is horrible for the environment and is beyond dangerous -the production of electric cars is worse for environment than gas vehicles -we don't have enough lithium on this planet for everyone to have an EV and on average, a tesla is only 30% better for the environment than a Honda civic in terms of emissions (since we still emit gas when we charge them)

I think the Mirai is a really great idea! Clean burning fuel is much better for the planet than batteries being charged by a coal burning power plant. Of course the infrastructure will have to be in place first. Only reason I haven't bought one yet. Also, not everyone has a garage to charge their EV. That is most certainly a privilege.

Even though GDI engines generate more power, better mileage with less weight. These engines operate under higher temperatures and pressure. Thereby i guess the long term wear/tear and life of engine will be much more compared to a MPFI 4 cylinders engine

Consumer Reports consistently strongly state a hybrid (electric-gas) is your best buy for the $$$ spent on new vehicle. Until Canada and the USA has millions and millions of public and private charging stations. My next automobile will be a Hybrid from either Toyota or Honda. BTW, why does one see a lot of Tesla stop ped on major highway in California. Lack of charging stations. We are another 20 years out for majority of automobiles being EVs. A lot of smoke and mirrors from the Gartner Group.

I think that car companies need to focus on multiple options. If all the car companies focus on the same technology, the shortages in materials are going to hike prices so high nobody can afford the EVs. So I think a focus on Hydrogen-based vehicles is legitimate. Also, Japan doesn't have its own supply of lithium, so Toyota is going to be at a disadvantage at acquiring those materials versus say China or the US.
Patrick Sweeney

@Brian H Ah. Ok. Pretty much agree with everything you said. Although I do believe that Tesla (and probably at least a *few* other EV makers) are actively interested in evolving battery tech to be able to support the need. I'm thinkin' solid-state rather than hydrogen, myself. Although, hell... even the sand supply (for chips) is becoming an issue, right? ugh

@Patrick Sweeney Hardly. If I could have influenced how we built cities in the USA I would have recommended that we not focus on building cars and highways but mass transit. At this point the US is kind of stuck with what we have for now - suburban sprawl, interstates, airplanes, and a distinct lack of viable high-speed rail. That being said, switching to vehicles that don't cause as much pollution is necessary. I was an early adopter of electric vehicles but I think our current battery tech is lacking. All the vehicles being replaced with EVs using lithium batteries is impractical and at some point not going to be economically viable either. I don't think that we have exhausted the different options for battery technologies or hydrogen based vehicles. There are probably other technologies that will become available. I just think that every car company building lithium battery vehicles isn't going to do it.

"I think that car companies need to focus on multiple options." That's an interesting perspective, and I get it. Soooooo.... Over the last however-many decades, did you also make that case (even if only to yourself) regarding all the legacy auto-makers almost religiously focusing exclusively on pollution-based engines?

The market will determine what products will survive. With the BRI projects, developing countries would be better equipped with electricity facilities and electrical high speed trains will eliminate lot of long distance trips. EV would be a big trend even in developing countries in the years to come. Affordable Chinese EV is increasing in countries like Thailand.

I think people forget they Toyotas main market is in Japan. And Japan has been heavily pushing towards hydro-nuclear fuel cell as a form of energy because solar and wind just won’t be enough for their nation. Toyota is investing into their home country, staying ahead of the curve so when hydrogen fuel becomes the norm in Japan, Toyota will already have a mass lineup of affordable vehicles.

Unfortunately, it seems no one wants to discuss this or the massive impact this creates. “O it’s so Green” they say because people think whatever power comes out of their plug (which might be fossil fuel at a plant) is cleaner than the fossil fuel in their existing vehicle, and they do not account for the lithium storage device within the vehicle itself.

I have the same concerns with EVs as Toyota has. I live in a place where it gets really really cold. Losing ranging for 5-6 mths of the year won’t cut it for me. Also EVs would not satisfy trips done during the the holidays. Too much time would be lost charging.

@sizzlacalunji , If you live in the US or Canada, only Tesla is recommended for long distance driving because the CCS network isn't very reliable and there aren't enough stations along the highways. In Europe, CCS charging is much better.

@sizzlacalunji yeah, for those longer trips, especially to or through places where you're not all that familiar some planning makes a lot of sense and will make the trip a lot more enjoyable. But that goes for all longer roadtrips as well I reckon. A lot of high power chargers, at least in Europe are placed close to restaurants or similar setups where food is available, but not all of them. Using a tool such as a better route planner aids a lot

@The Spectator Good question. First, like all Japanese companies, they pay their workers small salaries but expect them to work insanely long hours. But that is country-wide. More specifically, Toyota price gouges ALL of their suppliers. They are like Wal-Mart, take it or leave it. But they create one major supplier with 2 or 3 minor suppliers and then threaten the major to basically make no profit with the prices and if they don't agree they will drop them and promote the secondary supplier who doesn't realize the literal spider web they are being trapped in. And for the record, no, Nissan, Mistubushi, or Honda or any of the others don't do this. And the profits simply go to padding Toyota's profit statement. It goes to how you do business. Toyota is the kind that takes capitalism to the extreme where they would sell the rope to hang themselves with. I could give many examples, but another one is national holidays. Toyota doesn't recognize many of them and claims they give their employees longer vacation time, except the don't. On average, they give way less during New Years and pressure many employees not to use their vacation days. Toyota is located in the center of Japan and controls much of the middle economy which is part of the reason why the region does so poorly economically.
