Toyota Australia flags hybrid growth, demands action on emissions mitigation

Toyota Australia’s (TMCA) hybrid rollout continues at pace, with one-in-five vehicles it sells here next year expected to be petrol-electric. That’s equivalent to 40,000 cars. Moreover, the company’s local arm — which sells about double the number of cars as its closest competitors Mazda and Hyundai — says it continues to lobby government to formulate more stringent regulations on CO2 output across industry.

2019 Toyota Tarago recalled

Toyota has recalled the 2019 Tarago over concerns about the boot door stay damper. According to the company, the plating process for the damper in the gas struts supporting the boot might have been conducted at the wrong temperature. If that's the case the gas in the damper may leak, and the strut might not correctly support the boot. A total of 86 vehicles are included in the campaign – a VIN list is contained within the recall notice here.

Toyota wants everyone to own a tiny sports car

Industry followers know the endless talk of autonomous vans and electric ride-share services taking over congested cities in place of conventional cars. Clearly self-proclaimed 'mobility provider' Toyota does as well, since one of the gems at its Tokyo motor show stand — called a ‘theme park’, bereft of any production cars and instead filled with ride-sharing pods, robots, and virtual reality tech — was a topless single-seater called the e-Racer (above).
