Electric vehicles will join the hybrid prius in toyota's lineup by 20-12. The electric vehicles will be a battery powered s-u-v, and a compact car for urban use. The SUV will be much like the company's Rav 4.
However, a toyota executive says hybrids will remain popular because of electric vehicles' limited range.
Toyota plans to roll out a plug-in version of the prius in 2012 as well,,,,, and a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle by 2015.
