Toyota says ALL their cars will be hybrids by 2020

Cars > Toyota


I'm not sure if this is a good or bad decision on Toyota's part, but they claim 100% of their product lineup will be on a Hybrid drivetrain by 2020. This bold claim was made by Toyota’s vice president in charge of powertrain development, Masatami Takimoto. He states that Toyota's efforts in reducing the costs of motors, batteries, and inverters will make hybrid cars about as cost effective as standard engined cars.

I'm not sure I like where all this is going. I'm sure it'll be a huge boost in cleaner cars and less dependence on oils and all that.. but.. I'm still a skeptic. What about performance? What about that deep rumble of a high powered gasoline burning engine? I just think it's a HUGE gamble on Toyota's part if this rumor is true. But then again, this is the world's #1 selling carmaker. I'm SURE they know what they're doing.

So what do you think? Let's hear your comments on this bold claim.
