How Long Does The Toyota Prius Have Left?

By  | 

The most popular vehicles on the market at the moment are the electric ones and some offer a range of 300 miles. Toyota is worried about this and they don’t know how long the Toyota Prius has left as it cannot compete.

Toyota has now set up an in-house company that has staff from four of their companies and they are focusing on researching and developing electric vehicles. In the past Toyota has focused on fuel cell technology and hybrid vehicles but now is the time to come up an electric vehicle that can offer up a range of 300 miles or more.

Toyota has said that they hope for the first of the electric vehicles to be released by 2020 in Japan. While they are working on offering up an electric vehicle that is able to compete with the ones already on the market, they won’t give up on eco-cars. The Toyota Mirai is known to be the ultimate in eco-cars and they are not going to give up on this.

When Toyota does come up with an electric vehicle, the Toyota Prius may be doomed and may not last long.

    1. Less than 1% of vehicles sold last year were EV’S
    2. Toyota Hybrids just clocked in its 10 MILLIONTH sale.
    3. Every journo has called each EV released the Prius Killer – yet it keeps on growing sales exponentially.
    4. Prius was never meant to be forever, it is a 20-30 year platform until EV’s become more long term viable cost wise, and range wise.
    5. Toyota has been working on EV tech for 20+ years and FCV (Hydrogen) powered vehicles for over 15 years.

    “When Toyota does come up with an electric vehicle, the Toyota Prius may be doomed and may not last long.”
    Depends on:
    – Cost
    – Range
    – Chargeability (*sp)
    – Speed of charging
    – Individual country government support
    – Real world impact – ie: charging with coal power, hydro, nuclear etc.
