Claiming the company the market, Toyota (NYSE:TM) is its plans for a global roll-out of an mini-car called the eQ.

To be honest, not particularly surprised. Toyota has not very aggressive, or interested in pursuing the electric vehicle market. And I get it. When it comes to a superior conventional hybrid Toyota still runs the The Prius is one of the most popular in the marketplace, with more 3 million units sold the hybrid superstar first

My point is, it doesn’t need EVs to fuel economy-conscious drivers showrooms.

Look, it’s no that when gas prices north, so do Prius sales.

back when oil crossed the mark and gasoline was well $4.00 a gallon, folks running to Toyota dealers and above sticker price to get one of vehicles. Even today, 50 miles-per-gallon can certainly help a nice hedge against gas prices.

So when it comes to superior economy, Toyota’s got a good going. And I suspect the company has no in pouring a bunch of capital EV development, when all it has to do to keep economy-conscious drivers coming in, is to inch those miles-per-gallon up few years with Prius

That being said, I do company reps would off the anti-EV rhetoric – however it may be.

Here’s what I mean.

In to this recent decision, vice chairman Takeshi said:

“The current of electric vehicles do not meet needs, whether it may be the distance the can run, or the costs, or how it takes a time to charge.”

Do not meet society’s needs?

70 percent of US consumers drive no than 40 miles per day. all-electric car from a major on the road today can deliver – and then some.

How long it to charge?

This is such a argument. Every EV owner I charges while he sleeps, up, drives to work, returns and plugs back in. It ain’t science, and unless you only for four hours a night, charging times are really not the issue that some have you believe.

Look, the thing is, Toyota need to come at it this The company does not need to its decision to anyone. And certainly doesn’t need to recite the and inaccurate arguments of the anti-EV

Truth is, Toyota has done a lot to integrate fuel economy the car-buying lexicon. The company forward with its hybrid when a lot of folks mocked the and the ability of Toyota to even it work economically.

The company the naysayers wrong, and today gets the last laugh.

So if Toyota decides not to pursue vehicles right now, fine. This doesn’t my opinion of the company or of the Prius, is a superior vehicle. And it definitely change my opinion regarding leadership role in providing that can help us reduce our oil consumption.

But putting out those and untrue comments about the vehicle market? Come on, You’re better than
