Japanese car brands get scolded – oppose electric cars

Japanese car brands form the absolute bottom of a new investigation into the spread of the electric car from the think tank ICCT.

Suzuki is the worst. Next comes Mazda. Then Nissan and Honda follow, because Toyota is the best of the five worst.

At least when, according to the American think tank ICCT, it will have plans to convert production to electric cars in order to reduce the brand's total CO2 emissions.

– The car manufacturers are making significant progress in converting to zero-emission cars, but there is still much to do to be competitive in the future – including expanding the model range, says Zifei Yang, who is one of the people behinda new report .

In the report, which is prepared once a year, it is especially the German brands such as Mercedes and BMW who, conversely, according to the ICCT, have made the most progress.

In fact, according to the report, only Tesla and BYD do better than the two German brands. The Stellantis group and the Volkswagen group, on the other hand, have fallen back somewhat compared to previous reports.

When the report is repeated in a year's time, starting in 2024, the numbers and ranking may look completely different. Several car brands – including BYD – have just launched major investments in hybrid cars.

BYD claims, among other things, that their latest petrol hybrid manages to get a full 2,000 kilometers out of the same tank full. Read more about it here.

On the whole, the car brands are almost in a row to be allowed to say that they are not advancing as quickly with electric cars as they had otherwise expected. Most recently, Ford has made it clear that it will not remove petrol and diesel cars from the European model program in 2030 after all.

At Mercedes, director Ola Källenius says in connection with the scrapping of an entire plan for electric cars that the brand cannot now say anything about when the electric car can compete with diesel and petrol cars.

At Toyota, which is thus beaten in the American report, it is not believed at all that electric cars are the only way to reduce CO2 emissions. In fact, the Japanese don't think the internal combustion engine is the enemy at all. Read more about it here .
