How Does Toyota Stay Ahead of the Curve?

As Australia’s leading automotive company, it can be hard to stay ahead of the curve and continually come up with new innovations in technology and environmentally-friendly cars, but Toyota has been quietly making advancements on both fronts. Toyota is focused on developing even better and more sustainable vehicles and has set a target of greatly reducing sales of petrol-powered cars by 2050. Take a look at some of the strategies and ideas Toyota is working on to meet the needs of motorists now, and into the future.

Caring for the Planet

Hybrid vehicles are growing in popularity and they’re becoming more and more common on our roads. Toyota is leading the way with a range of new Hybrid models such as the Corolla and the RAV4 joining the already popular Camry, and, of course, the Prius, which was introduced over 20 years ago.

New Technology

New Toyotas have a stunning array of technology at your fingertips and they’re becoming safer, more efficient, more comfortable and greener thanks to Toyotas continual research and development. With features such as reversing cameras, blind spot monitors, traction control and vehicle stability control, Toyotas are one of the safest cars on the road. You’ll also find many features inside to make the drive more comfortable and entertaining for your passengers, especially the kids.

Hybrid Cars

The first Toyota Prius was released in 1997, and in 2020, you’ll be able to choose from eight different Hybrid models. Toyota is committed to developing the Hybrid technology to create vehicles that are more fuel efficient, reduce emissions and let you drive even further. The petrol motor and electric engine work in harmony to give you the best of both worlds: the extra power when you need it and zero emissions in city traffic.

Electric Cars

Toyota’s Mirai was the first mass-produced fuel cell vehicle to enter the market in 2014. Fuel cell vehicles are powered by electricity generated by a chemical reaction hydrogen in the car’s tanks, and oxygen from the environment. They produce no pollutants or greenhouse gases, only water. Since hydrogen and oxygen are plentiful in the atmosphere, fuel cell technology is a big win for the planet. Toyota is also planning to work with Tesla Motors to develop and build better electric vehicles for the future.
