US-bound Toyota EVs, battery supplier drama, EVs not the whole solution: Today’s Car News

U.S. electric vehicle battery supply is in upheaval due to an ITC ruling. Toyota reveals two electric vehicles, and we sum all we know about them so far. And is a U.S. shift to electric vehicles enough to achieve climate goals? This and more, here at Green Car Reports. 

Toyota made an about-face on EVs for America Wednesday, with a confirmation that two electric vehicle models will arrive in the U.S. in 2021—as well as one additional plug-in hybrid. 

Separately, we summed up what we know about these two upcoming Toyota electric vehicles, which appear to be a crossover and a sedan, and the e-TNGA platform underpinning them. 

A ruling from the U.S. ITC is putting a Georgia electric vehicle battery plant in jeopardy, and complicating the potential domestic supply of EV batteries for much of a decade if LG Chem and SK Innovation don’t reach a settlement. 

And an analysis from experts at the Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) underscore that a U.S. shift to electric vehicles alone won’t solve climate goals. People also need to drive less.
