WASHINGTON, May 2 (Reuters) - White House senior adviser John Podesta said Toyota Motor Corp is "fully committed" to electric vehicles after he met recently with senior company officials.

Podesta told Reuters reporters and editors in a roundtable meeting on Tuesday the Japanese automaker "had been the laggard" but was now committed to electric vehicles.

"I think they're going to stick with plug-in hybrids for a while, maybe longer than some of the other companies but they're fully now committed under their new leadership to electrification," he said. (Reporting by David Shepardson Editing by Chris Reese)
