The Climate Change Commission recently proposed a ban on petrol and diesel powered vehicles by 2035.

The boss of Toyota New Zealand Neeraj Lala says that just won't work in New Zealand.

He says Electric Vehicles are in short supply worldwide and that they don't offer the versatility New Zealanders want.

"We have unprecedented demand for hybrid cars, and big challenges with battery production constraint."

Neeraj Lala joined Simon Barnett and Phil Gifford to explain.
