    Going into full production mode in about a week. They're gonna Crank out ICE vehicles and consumers will #$%$ them up. That's Kinda what they do isn't it?Folks are a little over the top with the shaming in regard to BEV's - that will happen in due time I'm sure, but in meantime they have built out an enormous infrastructure to produce Gas Engine vehicles (over Decades) Now in the span of 6,8, - 12 months people on chat boards would have them scrap all that - you know, ignoring the fact that America doesn't have the infrastructure in place to charge BEV's if they get to a double digit presence ~ It'll happen eventually. But for now, let's continue doing the business that got us to No.1 in auto sales and reliability. Let's continue succeeding.Some folks might do well to Google this query;'What percentage of cars are Battery operated'? (United States)The answer might give some Clarity.

    Well, here in NC, Toyota supposedly going to build a brand new EV car manufacturing plant but they are keeping that news from press...

    I think Toyota is going to quietly sneak up on everyone in this race. They have the most reliable and popular combustion and hybrid vehicles on the planet. The just rolled out their first EV and they have Hydrogen. Don't be against Toyota. They will ultimately take the same market share in this new revolution that they have in the past.

    looking for an entry point on Toyota, they make the most sense regarding EV vehicles and i think in time their action will also make the most sense as they produce for the masses... at cost structure that makes sense for the masses. #1 for a reason.. I'm looking at Toyota for my upcoming purchase of a Hybrid or simply a regular I C E vehicle, my current 2009 camry has been a reliable cost efficient car :)

    Not invested in TM yet, but soon. I don't get the TSLA valuation at all. Not knocking the company as they do exciting things, but it strikes me that Toyota does them far more sensibly. The produced IC and hybrids at the time of cheap gasoline, and are ramping up more into EV now that gas prices are climbing and are expected to stay high. They're also way ahead of the curve on hydrogen. Tesla is the Louis Vuitton handbag of the EV market. Toyota will produce it for the masses. I have no doubt Toyota will make my first EV.

    Toyota is rolling out EV SUV - BZ4X, very impressive entry into EV field! Nobody pay attention to such big news? I believe such move will compete head-to-head with Tesla and GM, Ford, etc…. Any comments?

    Toyota was 30 years a head on hybrid cars, they are now 25 years ahead on competition regarding clean hydrogen.
    First electric car was built in 1892.
    Not by $tsla , didn't work than, it will not work now.
    Wait until there are 1 million EV cars in a single state trying to charge at the same time. Blackouts would be the norms
    China has over 3 millions cars on roads now, they are experiencing blackouts daily. Demands for natural gas and coal is soaring.
    Power stations can't cope with increasing demand for electricity.
    Sorry an other blackout, can't finish typing ....,............?

    Toyota projections in capturing the EV market by 2030?

    My prediction: 4%

    Toyota is led by idiots. What used to be iconic brand is now brand of dinosaurs who lost contact with reality. They spent billions for R&D of hydrogen. Everyone who isn't brain dead knows, that this is dead end. While cost and capacity of batteries keeps significantly improving, hydrogen is still a hydrogen, which means cramped space in cabin, very short range even compared to BEVs, astronomical operating costs, terrible performance, inherent danger, no infrastructure, frequent servicing and filter replacements and very high CO2 emissions. You would think that they will finally realize their mistake and abandon this BS, but they are doubling down and keep wasting R&D budget while they are getting more and more behind the competition in BEVs. Their bZ4X has terrible specs and their software is now one of the worst in the industry. Their brand name is stained and viewed as the last fossil brand. They are also the last in the race for autonomous driving. They are actually getting so desperate they acquired Lyft AV division. How bad it is, when you have to buy one of the worst AV project out there? Their solid states batteries have absolutely no commercial potential because they are not anode-free, their separator is extremely hard to manufacture and uses expensive materials and it doesn't even solve dendrites. I have no idea how can this company justify twice higher market cap compared to VW group that has higher revenues, is 2nd biggest BEV maker, has the best solid state battery tech and owns significant chunk of Argo AI (one of the AV leaders). Incredible, really.

    What could happen to automobile stocks like TM when the news comes out that the chip shortage is over?

    In some of my past lives - I studied Toyota. Throughout my career Toyota's business strategies were helpful : just-in-time, continuous improvement, pulling the andon cord, a focus on developing people, and their intimate supplier relationships, and so much more.

    Toyota's competitiveness, as they saw it, was in their human resources development.

    So - these factors played into their response to the EV threat. An inability to pivot away from making 8 million internal combustion engine cars.

    Looking at some of the Toyota Way - and how this played how as Tesla emerged - is as follows:

    TOYOTA: Base your management decisions on a long-term philosophy, even at the expense of short-term financial goals

    Mr Toyoda violated this first rule - by ignoring the Tesla threat. This one is stunning. Toyota/Tesla had partnership to build EV RAV4 from 2014. Musk invited Mr Toyota to his house. He drove a model S.

    And Toyota exited the Tesla partnership.

    TOYOTA: The right process will produce the right results

    Toyota kept with existing processes - which have become inferior to the manufacturability of Teslas due to Toyota's need to stick to ICE cars. They are on the wrong processes. Sunk costs are sinking Toyota.

    TOYOTA: Create a continuous process flow to bring problems to the surface

    problem: EV cars will become cheaper, have better performance, require less maintenance, and unlock new customer service benefits (entertainment in car while not having the drive for example).

    This is a problem. Has this been brought to the surface at Toyota?

    TOYOTA: Build a culture of stopping to fix problems, to get quality right the first time

    Tesla had panel gaps, and inferior quality in first batch of cars. Tesla implemented fail-fast mentality to deliver cars - but built in processes to fix issues. Up front quality sacrificed by Tesla to establish new industry. Now they have matured - quality is no longer issue on cars produced after 6 months (I know - have a model Y with no problems except a squeaky turn signal)

    TOYOTA: Standardized tasks and processes are the foundation for continuous improvement and employee empowerment

    Tesla built in extensive robotic automation. Tesla is more interested in throughput over employee empowerment. Employees get empowered with Tesla stock options go up. Continuous improvement and bring Tesla's mission is adopted by employees. That is how they are empowered.

    TOYOTA: Respect your extended network of partners and suppliers by challenging them and helping them improve

    Tesla vertically integrated. Do mining, make their own car seats, have largest casting equipment on planet to create cars. Result is quicker time to market. Toyota cannot budge because of their supplier relationships.

    They can't pivot quick enough

    TOYOTA: Make decisions slowly by consensus, thoroughly considering all options; implement decisions rapidly

    business death in the 21st century when innovation occurs quickly

    TOYOTA: Become a learning organization through relentless reflection (hansei) and continuous improvement (kaizen)

    Toyota must follow this now above all else - and make decisions today.

    Toyota is Japan's largest company. Employing 70,000 plus all supplier jobs. Toyota will always be around. Question is, will Toyota survive through government charity, or will it thrive by following hansei and kaizen.

    Not much time left to tell.

    If you post that Janet Yellen is proposing to tax unrealized gains on stock positions, your post is deleted. But it's possible to see that on the net. How funny, huh?

    TM is correct to continue Hybrid and battery innovation and technology. Also, hydrogen is a technology that can the real game changer, TM is is on the leading technology of this. Government should not pick winners - they should support all technology and then let the market decide. Many years to get EV to be a majority of cars in USA - other technology will compete. TM is in a great position to capture and develop multiple technologies. A well run company with a very low evaluation. Time to buy and hold - in my case just keep adding.
