Western European sales to be zero-emission cars by 2035, says Toyota

Toyota Motor said all new vehicle sales in Western Europe are going to be zero-emission models by 2035.

The statement comes as the world’s biggest automaker adheres to tighter emission rules in the region.

By 2030, at least half of the automaker’s model mix will be zero-emission, including electric vehicles (EV) and hydrogen fuel cell cars, the automaker said in a press release on Thursday.

Toyota, like other automakers, has been releasing a range of electric cars to meet tougher emission regulations in major markets such as Western Europe.

Toyota has not committed to fully abandoning gasoline cars, arguing that some regions are not yet ready for a switch to EVs or any other alternative technology.

Toyota said sales of electrified vehicles help it increase vehicle sales in the region to about 1.3 million units in 2022 from 1.07 million this year.
