Following widespread criticism for their opposition to electric vehicles, Toyota Motor Corporation announced in January a major reshuffling of senior executives.

Now, Toyota’s incoming CEO said the automaker would release “next-generation” electric cars under the Lexus brand by 2026.

The Verge ::

Toyota will also be expanding its current EV lineup, which currently consists of the bZ4X crossover SUV (which required a recall to make sure its wheels don’t fall off) and the Subaru Solterra EV built on top of Toyota’s e-TNGA flexible EV platform. Lexus has yet to release its RZ 450e SUV that’s based on the same platform.
