We may be famous for our hybrid technology, but we know that hybrids are not the only solution we can use to help deliver better, more energy-efficient transport. We have also been developing electric vehicle technology as part of our future mobility roadmap. We believe electric vehicles are a great way to improve mobility and reduce pollution in urban areas.
Where our hybrids, plug-in hybrids and fuel cell hybrid vehicles are ideal for longer journeys, electric vehicles are best suited to short, low-speed journeys in towns and cities. Compact, zero-emissions electric vehicles powered by batteries that are quick to recharge can improve air quality and ease traffic congestion. They are quiet, easy to drive and have low running costs, making them perfect for commuting journeys or as delivery vehicles.
