Toyota boss thinks she is overhyped
According to The Wall Street Journal said Toyota boss Akio Toyoda Thursday that electric cars are ‘overhyped’ and that proponents do not see how much CO2 they do emit. EV advocates are ignoring the CO2 emissions associated with energy generation and the costs of transitioning to EVs. He seems to be talking mainly about the situation in Japan, where electricity mainly comes from coal and gas plants. “So the more EVs we build, the worse the CO2 emissions get,” Toyoda says.
The second problem has to do with the infrastructure that would be needed to facilitate a country with only electric cars. In the case of Japan, this would require EUR 111 billion to EUR 293 billion. The current business model of the auto industry would ‘collapse’, resulting in the loss of millions of jobs.techzle.com/toyota-boss-electric-cars...
