TOKYO - Toyota Motor Corp. is boosting its green vehicle lineup, with 21 new hybrids in the next three years, a new electric car later this year and a fuel cell vehicle by 2015.

Japan's top automaker outlined its green vehicle plans Monday amid growing concerns about global warming and surging gas prices.

Toyota will offer an electric compact called eQ, based on its iQ model, in Japan and the U.S. in December though the number of the vehicles made will be extremely limited — about 100.

The fuel cell vehicle, which runs on hydrogen, will be offered from 2015.
