 It has been almost a decade since TVR produced an automobile.

 Toyota has confirmed that it has sold the 1.43 percent share it owned in Tesla, thus ending an electric car collaboration between the two auto makers. Toyota wants to branch out on its own when it comes to producing all-electric cars.
