Toyota Motor Corp. said Wednesday it expects battery electric vehicles (BEV) and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) to make up 15% of total U.S. sales by 2030. The Japan-based auto maker said that including hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) and plug-in hybrids (PHEV), 70% of the combined Toyota and Lexus vehicles sold will be electrified by 2030. Globally, Toyota expects to sell 8 million electrified vehicles by 2030, including 2 million BEVs and FCEVs. Toyota's U.S.-listed stock rose 2.6% in premarket trading, after the company reported a fiscal fourth-quarter profit that more than doubled and was well above expectations. The stock has lost 1.5% year to date through Tuesday, while shares of U.S.-based rival General Motors Co. have soared 33.8%, the iShares MSCI Japan ETF has edged up 0.3% and the S&P 500 has gained 10.5%.
