Toyota to be 100% hybrid by 2020? Could it be true? Do we want it to be?
Masatami Takimoto may just have been flexing Toyota's Eco-muscles, but when he said that he expected Toyota to be 100% hybrid by 2020, people were listening. Frankly, I'd rather that not be their goal. While hybrid systems have some marvelous advantages, by 2020, I expect Toyota to have some full-electrics on the road as well.
Frankly, with the hot sales of the uninspiring Tacoma and the Tundra, I don't really see Toyota as the eco-ideal. But I one could imagine a 20% gas, 20% electric, 60% hybrid mix by 2020. And that, in my opinion, is the kind of goal all auto-companies should be adopting.
