What about hybrids?
While there’s been a lot of talk from automakers about plans for an all-electric future, some major manufacturers will continue producing hybrid models that operate at least partially gasoline.
For example, Toyota has said that it sees electrified vehicles making up 70% of sales by 2030 with a majority of those being hybrid models.
Honda plans to achieve 100% zero-emission vehicle sales in North America by 2040, though the company plans to add hybrid-electric systems to more U.S. models in the nearterm.
To see how hybrids will slow the transition to a zero-emissions fleet, let’s add a hybrid to the model.
