    LOL from the read;
    I hope it could be true despite similar claims regarding their expensive hydrogen experiment ( they should have practically been ubiquitous by now) - where they extolled the virtues of the tech - while overstating a huge downside of electric cars published in dishonest EV bashing ads.
    Crossing fingers that this time it's true.

    No reason to think the new cars of today will not be updated and outdated like always, just this is at a faster clip.

    Damn, I’m older than you two combined then :eek::p:confused:

    In all seriousness, is this different from Toyota’s stated plans in 2017?
    https://electrek.co/2017/12/18/toyota-electric-car-plans/

    Then, they stated they planned to have 10 models of BEVs by “the early 2020s”.
    They are running short on time:sleep:

    How many years ago did all the other automakers reveal their "plans" for the EV transition? Kinda reminds me of how we celebrate the last person to cross the finish line of a marathon before the race shuts down and all the runners behind that person are not able to officially complete the race.

    CONGRATULATIONS TOYOTA!

    WHAT AN IMPRESSIVE ACCOMPLISHMENT!

    Of course in Toyotas case, it's still years and years away from actually happening, which always takes longer than expected.

    And if you work at one of those frozen head facilities and the freezer fails for a little while and the heads thaw out, do you get the whole business shut down by telling someone? Or just keep collecting payments as though the heads were still kept continuously frozen for centuries?
