India must look at multiple options and not just EVs to curb carbon emissions: Toyota official

India must look at multiple technology options, including hybrids, to tackle carbon emissions and not just restrict to electric vehicles, a senior company official of Japanese auto major Toyota said on Friday.

In May, the company announced plans to invest Rs 4,800 crore in Karnataka for local production of powertrain parts and other components of Electric Vehicles (EVs). It is preparing to develop an ecosystem for electrified vehicles in the country as part of its path towards carbon neutrality.”For India, we should have a diversified way to tackle carbon neutrality, not only BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle), not only A or B or C (technology). We have to tackle with A and B and C,” Toyota Kirloskar Motor (TKM) Managing Director Masakazu Yoshimura told PTI in an interview.

To do so, he said, “We need to have a good rich resource of technology backup … we need good skilled manpower supported by some investments of course, and the government support.” Yoshimura said all stakeholders must get together to decide what is best suited for India.
