Electrek have presented their own take on what the C.E.O. of Toyota Canada had to say, but David Booth here presents it in the CEO of Toyota Canada, Larry Hutchinson's own words. Mr Hutchinson presents an evangelical crusade on behalf of the Hybrid, with some interesting tab packet maths to boot.
Regards NeilToyota's master plan for a low-carbon future
Toyota is the greenest automaker on the planet, and their plan for reducing tailpipe emissions is ambitious
...This will be a Motor Mouth unique in the 20-plus years of Driving. Rather than presenting my view on the most pressing topic affecting the auto industry — the most efficient path to a lower carbon future — I’m going to present the speech (abridged, but mostly verbatim) Larry Hutchinson, president and CEO of Toyota Canada, used to open Toyota’s participation in the 2020 Canadian International Auto Show.
Toyota, if anyone needs reminding, is the industry leader in electrification — 13 million hybrids, and counting — and if you judge environmental-friendliness by how much carbon dioxide has been eliminated from the atmosphere, the greenest automaker in existence. So, without further ado, here is how the biggest, most successful, and most environmentally conscious traditional automaker thinks we can reduce the greenhouse gasses in our atmosphere most quickly.
