Toyota warns it could electric car sector

Europe has said it could away from the electric car unless it is confident that supplies will be decarbonised in the

Didier Stevens, Toyota s head of government affairs and issues told RTCC policy makers and utility also had a role to play in electric vehicles got off the ground.

We to cooperate with the electricity so that what we present to the in its totality, is a clean solution, we d prefer to step back, he

We always assess a vehicle well to wheel. If the electricity is not from renewables then it little sense.

The UK recently failed to add a decarbonisation to its new energy bill. Stevens this is the kind of policy could protect the environmental of electric vehicles in the future utility firms reduce the CO2 emitted from their either by capturing carbon or clean energy sources.

We are with some concern at the plan of having 1m electric on the road by 2020. If more and of their electricity is going to from coal, then does not solve the problem. It shifts the emissions to another

This is not how it should be, added

Toyota is currently focused on and plug in hybrid vehicles but says it will introduce an vehicle in Europe by 2015.

How it and other electric vehicles are at emissions will depend on how clean energy countries are on their grids, he added.

The EU is negotiating its 2030 climate and policies. The UK has called for a 50% reduction in but is against an EU-wide renewables

If renewable targets can help why not, said Stevens. We don t to wait till its too late. we can do it now so why If the renewable targets are removed will be serious question Some pressure is always

Look at the progress made on CO2 standards for cars, would progress be made without I doubt it.

The EU recently announced a of alternative fuel targets included a goal to build 1 electric vehicle charging and facilities for hydrogen and gas powered too. While Stevens the plans, the reception has not been positive.

We see a little reluctance the energy sector. The electricity is interested but for different purposes. The are more interested in electric as an energy storage solution anything else.

With renewable energy not generating power when it is using it to charge electric overnight would help to out the distribution of power that generate.

There are also that governments could to recoup some of the lost from fuel duties as turn to electric vehicles, by a higher rate for electricity to power electric cars. could threaten the economic of going electric and offers a poison pill that threaten the sector.


Rapid vehicle growth in the world is having a major on air quality and greenhouse gas emissions but electric and hybrid vehicles are not the best solution.

The Chinese are very much about fuel consumption and air I don t think the introduction of new technologies be an issue in China. The government can it happen.

The situation in India is We have to produce vehicles fit the market and we are considering a low cost for India, it will most be petrol. The first stage is to mobility and the infrastructure has a lot of progress to said Stevens.

That will have a modern, engine however. It will be and as clean as possible. In Brazil we focus on gas powered vehicles.

We could go to India and offer in hybrids but only a few would buy so we wouldn t achieve clean they would just to the old methods.

If we build electric nobody can afford nobody not us, not the governments, not the environment.
