Toyota withdrew its support for the Trump administration action in February 2021 after President Joe Biden took office.

So it's discontinuing the Tundra?

Thought not.

Toyota should step up their game and start manufacturing sub $25k BEV. Japan also needs Toyota to get their head out.

California just passed a ban on selling gasoline cars from 2035, so these Japanese companies better stop playing politics and focus on innovation. Otherwise, they will be left behind.

Just fudge the results like most of the other companies.

I am not sure Toyota knows what it has accepted.

California just banned the sale of all ICE cars including hybrids from 2035 and onward.

By accepting California emissions standard, Toyota agreed to exit California(and New York) markets from 2035.

Such vehicle would only sell in Japan.

BZ4X is already a flop in the US because of its low-range, glacial charging speed at 2 hours to reach from 10% to 80% on fast charger; that was before the wheel fall off scandal and Toyota's buyback program. Hyundai has set the EV bar too high for others to follow, 10 to 80% charge in 19 minutes.

The cold hard truth is that Japan has fallen behind even the Chinese in EV race.

By 2040, Japan would completely be a post-industrial society like Britain, where most of manufactured good is imported and Japan lives off finances and tourism/hospitality, leaving China and Korea to duke it out for the supremacy of Asia.

No. 2035 is 13 years in the future and much will happen between now and then. 2035 is also the same year the EU will prohibit sales of gasoline and diesel powered cars and vans.
