At a media briefing in Japan in mid December 2021, Akio Toyoda, global president of Toyota Motor Corporation, shared his vision for the future of mobility.
With the goal of achieving a carbon-neutral society, Toyoda reconfirmed his commitment to providing solutions and options to as many customers around the world as possible. In addition to continuing to develop hybrids (HEVs), plug-in hybrids (PHEVs), and fuel-cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), Toyota will expand its offering of battery electric vehicles (BEVs), providing safety, security and convenience for Toyota and Lexus customers.

Regarding carbon neutrality and Toyota, during the briefing Toyoda shared several targets, including:
- By 2030, global sales of battery electric vehicles (BEVs) will reach 3.5 million vehicles annually.
- By 2030, Toyota will offer 30 BEV models across the Toyota and Lexus brands, globally, with more on the way.
- With this expanded global BEV lineup, Toyota and Lexus will offer BEVs in all segments, including sedans, SUVs, K-Cars, commercial vehicles and other segments.
To reach these targets, Toyota plans to invest approximately $70 billion globally in electrified vehicles including HEVs, PHEVs, FCEVs and BEVs. Of that amount, approximately $35 billion will be invested in BEVs starting in 2022 through 2030.
