TOKYO, Japan: During an industry event for customized autos in Chiba, east of Tokyo, Toyota Motor showcased zero-emission versions of its 1980s sports range, which are still popular around the world.

The Japanese automaker unveiled two cars of the AE86 generation, one modified as a battery-electric vehicle and the other with a hydrogen-engine.

“Re-modelling existing cars must be explored as an option to achieve a goal of zero carbon emissions by 2050. In Japan, only one in about 20 cars on the road are new, and older ones are mainly powered at least partly by gasoline,” said Toyota President Akio Toyoda.

“It is important to leave a choice for cars that are already loved or owned by someone,” he added.

Toyota aims to sell at least 3.5 million battery electric models (BEVs) in 2030, and plans to invest $70 billion to electrify vehicles and expand its battery production.
