At the Reuters Events Automotive Summit last week, Gill Pratt, chief scientist for Toyota Motor Group, acknowledged that battery electric cars will play a significant role in reducing carbon emissions in the transportation sector, but cautioned that the world should adopt an “all of the above” strategy that includes good old fashioned self-charging hybrids and fuel cell powered vehicles.

Pratt said Toyota believes in “diversity of drivetrains” to give customers different ways to reduce carbon dioxide. “It’s not for us to predict which solution is the best or say only this will work.” He added that government incentives should be aimed at reducing carbon emissions, not picking which car technology is the best way to achieve those goals.
