Toyota Encumbers Mass Distribution of Electric Cars in the USA
According to the presidential administration's decree, the state will allocate $ 174 billion to popularize electric vehicles: $ 100 billion will go to subsidies to buyers, 45 to electrify bus fleets, 15 to expand the infrastructure of charging stations, and the remaining 10 to stimulate sales of green trucks. Toyota, in turn, demanded that hybrids and hydrogen cars be included in the list of financial support.
According to The New York Times, the Japanese automaker is pursuing a similar policy not only in the United States but also in other countries, including Europe, India and Japan. Experts interviewed by the publication attribute this to the fact that Toyota is lagging behind competitors in the electrification of the model range.
