I’ve seen my share of vehicle manufacturing facilities, and many are alike. Some are more heavily roboticised than others, many are remarkably pristine environments, most are sprawling sites best traversed by buggy, and each runs to a rigorous regiment. Not surprisingly, Toyota’s Motomachi plant is all of these things. The site’s ground was broken in […]

Sedans are losing their appeal in America as SUVs and crossovers take a lion’s share of the market, but this sedan will get you to look twice.

In this Toyota commercial, a woman is singing a Christmas-themed song about cars. Near the end of the commercial you can see that her right eyebrow is falling off. Did Toyota not notice?

THAT NEW CAR SMELL: Toyota’s New Power Plant Will Create Clean Energy from Manure.
Toyota first confirmed joint-development of a new sports car with BMW way back in 2012.
