Toyota Australia tracking steady path to zero emissions

Australia's runaway market leader Toyota doesn’t offer a fully-electric car, but its role in reducing emissions is a big one thanks to its hybrid rollout. This is the argument of its vice-president of sales and marketing Sean Hanley, who last week reaffirmed a goal to grow sales of its petrol-electric hybrids from a record 28,000 last year to 40,000 this year. That's equivalent to about 20 per cent of its total expected sales, or nearly one-third of its projected passenger and SUV sales.

Formula E reveals Gen 2 Evo car for 2020

The EVO will be revealed at the Geneva motor show, and features a new front wing, a new fin behind the driver, and a fresh rear wing. Unlike Formula 1, where teams invest millions developing their own aerodynamics packages, the entire Formula E grid has the same bodywork fitted to their cars.
