quote: I'm pretty sure Toyota has the horse and the cart ready to go; they certainly have the capability to do so if its feasible for them.
quote: if they were selling out everywhere, if there was profit; do you really see Toyota making this statement? Hell no.
quote: Hell yes. They are spreading FUD to protect their Prius line from the coming threat of plugins which beat them at their own game of being green.
quote: When the Spark EV comes out, you can buy it for about the same as a Prius-C, save more on gas every month, and go 0-60 in 7.6s instead of 11. The Leaf already quadruples the sales of Toyota's EVs.
quote: Toyota's plugin options simply suck. The Prius Plug-in is way overpriced for what is basically a Prius with an extra 3.1 kWh of battery and a plug, and the RAV4 EV costs $50k.
quote: What EV does Toyota make? I'm not familiar with it.
quote: The Pruis C has WAY more space than the Spark
quote: Toyota's plug-ins are hybrids and are in a different category than the Spark.
quote: However Toyota isn't a Government funded research company
quote: Their Hybrid R&D was funding by the Japanese Government. I believe NiCD battery was partially funded by the US government.
quote: Uhhh that isn't even on topic or rebukes anything I've said.
quote: Regardless of who helped fund the technology, every car Toyota produces represents an investment in capital.
