While electric vehicles may seem to be all the rage in the automotive space, Toyota Motor Corporation president Akio Toyoda is pumping the breaks on the idea of an all-in approach.

“People involved in the auto industry are largely a silent majority,” Toyoda told reporters during a trip to Thailand, according to the Wall Street Journal. “That silent majority is wondering whether EVs are really OK to have as a single option. But they think it’s the trend so they can’t speak out loudly.”

Because the right answer is still unclear, we shouldn’t limit ourselves to just one option,” he said, according to the outlet — during the prior few years, he said, he has attempted to communicate this idea to stakeholders in the automotive space, including government figures, but he indicated that his effort had been tiring at points.

Is there interest in electric vehicles? Yes. Is it more than 10% to 15% of our customer base? No way,” Ryan Gremore, a dealer based in Illinois who owns a number of brand franchises, said, according to the outlet.

According to the Journal, Toyoda said that other options like hydrogen-powered vehicles were starting to receive a better reception from government leaders, media figures, and people in the vehicle industry. [More]

  1. Ethanol or methanol works well, just need different lines and can make it at home. Just like alcohol, make it from pretty much any fruit or vege and even certain plants matter. Just put in some oil, to keep alcohol more stable which can be also made from plants.

  2. Haha! Yep. But if we have a future with cars in it, I believe it’ll be Hydrogen. Electric is a dead end, and these guys know it. Just a political scam.

  3. The answer is unequivocally, NO. EV’s are pussy cars. So, if you’re a feggethole butt-puncher, you will really enjoy your EV.
