Toyota Claims All Cars Will Be Hybrids

Jim Press, the President of Toyota North America, came out with a very bold statement recently, saying that “eventually, everything will be a hybrid.” What’s more, he’s so confident in Toyota’s ability and so proud of their product line that he’s comparing the “ground-breaking” Toyota Prius hybrid with the Ford Model T.

As I’m sure you already know, the Ford Model T is often lauded as the first of its kind, a car that became widely available to the masses. It was revolutionary for its time and it has shaped the automotive industry into what it is today. Toyota, or rather, Jim Press is saying that the Prius is equally revolutionary.

Although I agree that we will be seeing more hybrids in the coming years, I don’t believe that everything will be a hybrid. Personally, I think that our reliance on fossil fuels will have to dry up at some point, forcing us to drive cars that don’t need any sort of conventional gasoline whatsoever.
