Toyota Shares 2016 Environmental Report

Toyota Shares 2016 Environmental Report

By | Toyota News | No Comments

Toyota Shares 2016 Environmental Report. We’ve reported numerous times about Toyota’s focus on the environment, whether its through supporting the WWF, partnering with the EMA, donating to Yellowstone National Park Youth Programs, or working to expand the knowledge on biodiversity threats. Their work for the environment has even lead to Toyota being named the EPA Energy Star Partner of the Year for 12 consecutive years. Last year we shared Toyota’s Environmental Report and outlined how they had moved forward with their goals during 2015, but now we are excited to share how Toyota has further positively impacted our environment in 2016. 

Toyota Motor North America Regional Environmental Director Kevin Butt said about these initiatives, “To achieve our 2050 goal of net positive impact, we’ll continue to make consistent, incremental improvements. These constant improvements, supported by innovative projects across Toyota operations in North America, will create positive change and a more sustainable future.”

During the past year, Toyota’s North American operations have reduced water usage by nearly 100 million gallons, which is the equivalent to the annual water use of more than 900 average American families, and announced plans for a 7.75 megawatt solar array at Toyota’s new headquarters campus in Plano, Texas, which will reduce annual carbon dioxide emissions by 7,122 metric tons, or the equivalent of the electricity used by almost 1,000 homes in a year.  Toyota has set six important objectives it hopes to achieve by 2050, and its aggressiveness in meeting these goals has allowed Toyota to meet, and in some cases exceed, its 2014 and 2016 targets. 

Some important ways Toyota has positively impacted the environment include:
 
Objective- Getting to Zero Emissions

  • The Toyota Mirai fuel cell vehicle was released in California, boasting one of the highest ranges of any zero emission vehicle on the road. 
  • Toyota also established an in-house venture company for EV development
  • Toyota introduced the Prius Prime plug-in hybrid, the most fuel-efficient vehicle on the road with a 26% enhancement in MPG over its predecessor.

Minimizing and Optimizing Water Usage:

  • Northern California Toyota Dealers saved 8.4 million gallons by encouraging  customers to skip the complimentary car wash after service.
  • Toyota reduced water withdrawals by 99.8 million gallons

Establishing a Recycling-Based Society and Systems:

  • Toyota’s North American facilities reduced, reused or recycled 96 percent of non-regulated waste during calendar year 2015.

Establishing a Future Society in Harmony with Nature:

  • Toyota has more than 1,000 acres across 10 North American sites certified by the Wildlife Habitat Council.
  • Toyota has been the national corporate sponsor of National Public Lands Day since 1999. The 2015 event contributed an estimated $18 million in volunteer services to improve public lands across the U.S.

Community and Dealer/Facilities Outreach:

  • With 54 and counting, Toyota and Lexus have more dealership facilities certified to LEED® standards in the U.S. and Canada than any other auto manufacturer.
  • Residents from more than 4,100 U.S. cities pledged to save over 1.9 billion gallons of water as part of the annual National Mayor’s Challenge for Water Conservation, sponsored by Toyota.
  • Last year, Toyota sites collected 267,818 pounds of household waste and donations from team members and local residents, equal to the weight of 20 full-size male African elephants.

Consumer Guide Names Toyota Yaris and Prius Best Buys for 2017

Consumer Guide Names Toyota Yaris and Prius Best Buys for 2017

By | Toyota News | No Comments

Consumer Guide Names Toyota Yaris and Prius Best Buys for 2017! The editors test drove more than 150 new vehicles and then selected the top ones in each class as the best buy; however, a vehicle must also distinguish itself as having a good dollar value compared to others in the class. Toyota topped the list in two different categories: Subcompact Cars and Compact Cars.

In the Subcompact Car category, the Toyota Yaris was named the best buy of 2017. The editors write about this category, “It used to be that “subcompact” denoted a cheap, stripped-to-the-basics econobox whose only attraction was price—and maybe fuel economy. That kind of subcompact is almost extinct. Most now come standard with a host of features that weren’t even offered in the segment ten years ago, accompanied in some cases by surprising levels of refinement and available amenities.”

Why exactly was the Yaris chosen? Consumer Guide shares, “With its commendable fuel-economy figures, generous level of standard equipment, affordable pricing, and fun-to-drive character, the Toyota Yaris iA is a subcompact-class standout. The Yaris iA is the product of a partnership between Toyota and Mazda; it’s essentially a re-trimmed version of the current-generation Mazda 2 sedan, which isn’t being sold in the U.S.”

In the Compact Car category, the Toyota Prius was named the best buy of 2017. The editors write about this category: “Not too big, not too small, but just right. That’s the way many people feel about compact cars—which aren’t nearly as “compact” as they used to be. Many are roomy enough to be family sedans while still getting good fuel economy, which is a large part of their appeal.”

Why did they choose the Prius for the Compact Category? Consumer Guide writes, “The Toyota Prius is the perennial fuel-economy champ among mainstream passenger cars, and it delivers those standout numbers while maintaining high levels of day-to-day practicality, driving ease, and all-around comfort. A plug-in hybrid model called Prius Prime—with an 8.8 kWh battery pack and an estimated all-electric range of up to 25 miles—debuts for 2017.”

Toyota Finds Accident Reduction in ICS-Equipped Models

Toyota Finds Accident Reduction in ICS-Equipped Models

By | Toyota News | No Comments

Toyota Finds Accident Reduction in ICS-Equipped Models. Toyota recently conducted a survey of accidents occurring in parking lots (involving the Alphard, Vellfire, and the Prius) which were equipped with the Intelligent Clearance Sonar (ICS) system. The survey took place over an 18-month period from January 2015 to June 2016 and aimed to determine how the ICS system helps prevent or mitigate collision damage in parking lots. 

According to the survey of data concerning approximately 2,500 accidents from insurance companies that cover the policies for about 60,000 of these above mentioned vehicles, pedal misapplication accidents fell by approximately 70%, and accidents related to reversing have been reduced by approximately 40%. No clear reduction in accidents has been confirmed with regards to accidents in vehicles moving forward. 

The ICS system works by using clearance sonar to detect obstacles during sudden start caused by pedal misapplication and supports collision avoidance with adjacent vehicles and obstacles, mitigating damage when moving at low speeds within a parking lot or pulling into a parking space even without pedal misapplication.
