    Toyota supports a variety of strategies for attaining carbon neutrality quickly and on a large scale. Across the globe, Toyota offers a wide selection of xEVs, including HEVs, plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV), battery electric vehicles (BEV), and hydrogen-powered fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV). These vehicles are being introduced in various regions based on the readiness of the market and infrastructure to power these cars with clean energy.

    By selling more than 20 million of their electrified cars to date, Toyota and Lexus have contributed to a global CO2 emissions reduction of more than 160 million metric tons.

    TMP President Atsuhiro Okamoto welcomes this development and believes the Philippines will soon be making significant contributions to one of the ultimate global goals of reaching net-zero carbon dioxide emissions in transportation.

    “We are optimistic that we can experience the environmental benefits of electrified vehicles with Toyota taking the lead while always ensuring ‘Mobility for All’ where no one is left behind,” Okamoto said.

    TMP's range of HEVs are positioned to offer affordable access to electrified technology. HEVs do not rely on charging from fossil-based power sources, but instead generate their own power through self-charging systems.

    “Additionally, we have been making ownership of electrified vehicles more attractive with incentives like the extended eight-year battery warrant, Okamoto added.

    “Looking toward the future, we hope to further expand our xEV line-up and offer more choices This is in line with Toyota’s challenge of achieving Carbon Neutrality by 2050 and continuing our pioneering role in environmental leadership towards all of society.”
