Toyota threatens to halt production in the UK

Toyota is apparently threatening to stop its UK car production if the ban on new hybrid cars in the UK is indeed brought forward to 2030, a move the UK government had brought forward by five years to 2030 for pure electric cars and announced the end of hybrid cars by 2035.

However, there have been more frequent rumours recently that the government could also bring forward the hybrid phase-out by five years to 2030, and according to now-surfaced documents from Toyota, the Japanese carmaker is threatening to halt all of its production in the UK if the date is brought forward.
