Toyota CEO says car manufacturers are not sold on electric vehicles


With politicians being driven by a green agenda, there seems to be a complete lack of common sense in what is taking place.

Several governments are already legislating an end to the sale of gas-powered vehicles in their jurisdictions over the next decade or so.

Meanwhile, car manufacturers, the ones who actually know what they are doing, are suggesting it is a bad idea.

While on a visit to Thailand, Akio Toyoda, the head of Toyota, recently commented that he remains skeptical of the push towards only producing electric vehicles, the Daily Wire reports.

He said that most working in the car industry agree with him but are too scared to speak out.

“People involved in the auto industry are largely a silent majority,” Toyoda said. “That silent majority is wondering whether EVs are really OK to have as a single option. But they think it’s the trend so they can’t speak out loudly.”

He added that the infrastructure, technology, and economics are not in place for such a radical shift.

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, agrees. Speaking to reporters while attending an energy conference in Norway in August 2022, Musk said the world needs more oil and gas, not less. He added that it will take decades to transition to a green economy:

“At this time, we actually need more oil and gas, not less,” Musk said. “Realistically I think we need to use oil and gas in the short term, because otherwise civilization will crumble. One of the biggest challenges the world has ever faced is the transition to sustainable energy and to a sustainable economy. That will take some decades to complete.”
