    Toyota has wasted time and money on hydrogen and algae-based Diesel, and now is wasting more effort on biofuels. If Toyota really wants to bet on the continued viability of hybrids in the face of EVs they should get serious about pure-synthetic e-gasoline, as Porsche and others are doing.

    Seriously? In an era when US states and whole nations are planning to entirely ban internal combustion engines for passenger cars in the next 10-20 years you think they're gonna get around that limit on their companies lifespan by putting snake oil in the tank rather than simply switching to pure electric like every single other auto maker has already been doing for years?

    TOYOTA IS DOOMED & THEIR STOCK IS GONNA TANK WAY SOONER THAN YOU THINK:

    "For the first time ever, an all-electric vehicle — specifically the Tesla Model Y — is now the world's bestselling car. According to analyst data from Jato Dynamics (published by Motor1), the Tesla Model Y has surpassed Toyota's RAV4 and Corolla models to top global sales rankings in the first quarter of 2023."
