Toyota Could Be Done With Diesels In Europe

While he did say this was his personal view rather than company policy, Leroy said that the manufacturer's success with petrol engines and plug-in hybrids had proved that it was unnecessary to offers consumers a diesel alternative.

At a press conference hosted by the company at the 2017 Tokyo Motor Show today, Toyota's Chief Safety Technology Officer Kiyotaka Ise noted that this is their anticipated time frame for ending the production of gas and diesel cars.

Toyota might not be introducing new diesel cars anymore, a recent report claims. "There are some diesels for fleet customers because they asked for them, but retail customers can not buy it with a diesel".

Toyota sees dedicated gas and diesel engines in its vehicles lineup reducing down to zero by the 2040s, on its path to its goal of reducing the Carbon dioxide emissions of its vehicles by 90 percent by 2050 (compared to 2010).

"We took the view, a long time ago, that we would not sell the C-HR [crossover] with a diesel engine".

Of course, Toyota do offer diesels, especially in stuff like the Hilux and Land Cruiser or where Fleet buyers insist, but they really aren't front and centre. But I said, 'No! No! Leroy is regarded as the second most powerful decision-maker at Toyota, behind CEO Ako Toyoda. "No!' We needed to follow the long-term trend and that is eco-vehicles".

"We know the plan until 2020", he said, "and there is a proposal from European auto makers to continue the current rate of reduction between 2021 and 2030". We are waiting to see on this. "There is still a question mark on the next target".

But as well as declaring diesel is all but dead at Toyota, Toyota also revealed that the next-generation hydrogen fuel cell technology will mean Toyota can deliver a hydrogen-powered auto for the same price as a hybrid vehicle. Let us know what you think!
