Toyota Motor Corp. has announced a plan to make 1.3 million electric vehicles by 2025, the automaker said Monday.
The announcement is the second in two years for the Japanese automaker, which is one of the biggest players in the electric vehicle market, and the first to include a total of more than 1.5 million vehicles.
The goal is to create a total fleet of more then 1.1 million electric cars by 2020, Toyota said.
The automaker also said it will be able to build 1.6 million hybrid electric cars.
Toyota, which sells about 90% of the world’s electric vehicles, is the biggest producer of hybrid cars in the world.
The company has been struggling to make enough electric cars to fill a need for those vehicles.
Toyko Motor Corp., another automaker that makes electric cars, is also making progress, with a total vehicle fleet of about 600,000 vehicles.
