Toyota Ramping Up Hybrid Development

The Prius and C-HR is just the beginning for Toyota. The automaker plans to increase their hybrid development team by 30% by 2021 in an effort to lower emissions.

RoadShow was told that 10% of Toyota's global sales are made up of hybrids and the automaker want's to double that by 2025.

I wouldn't mind seeing better hybrid power-trains on the market soon because the currently C-HR hybrid could use more power.

At the rate they're going, we may see a hybrid version for all of their SUVs, crossover, sedans, basically everything but their pickup trucks.

They'll easily be able to double that by 2025. With the way the industry is advancing, and people getting a lot more comfortable and accepting of hybrid powertrains and full EVs, sales of hybrids will dramatically increase over the next 10 years.

If you look on most automotive news websites you'll see this is the norm, if anything it's a few steps behind other brands. Apparently BMW was to push hard on EV's, something to the extend of over 3/4 of what they sell being EV's.

It's a great direction for the auto industry to move in, this way we'll get more range thanks to the hybrid systems and they aren't always under-powered. Yea, the powerful hybrids aren't exactly cheap, but I'm sure Toyota can develop one that won't break the bank.

That's what Toyota kinda does I find. Provide a great all around package, good range, good performance, good handling, etc.

Probably not going to be really great performance and really great handling. But it'll be good for what we can use on the roads.

It will be sportier than any Toyota CUV before it, this time their goal is to stick to what they always did but this time around make it FUN. During this shift things will just happen slowly, its risky going hard and then failing hard.

Fortunately aftermarket has picked up some momentum when it comes to exterior mods, maybe that`s a sign we`ll see enough performance related items come to marke.t
