Once more, with feeling, from Geneva: all Toyotas will get hybrid option

The Asia-only Toyota Crown model (pictured) is the latest Toyota to get a hybrid powertrain option but it certainly won't be the last. Toyota president Katsuaki Watanabe told Automotive News (subs req'd) in Geneva today that sometime in the 2020s, every Toyota will be available with a hybrid engine. If you think you might have read this before somewhere, you're right. Back in January, Watanabe said the same thing and even that wasn't the first time. Toyota's "all-hybrid" message is repeated at pretty much every major auto show. We're not against a line-up like this, we just hope these hybrid powertrains - when they arrive - will actually save fuel, instead of adding questionable value to vehicles like the Lexus LS 600h.
