The 2012 Paris Motor Show opened its doors to the public two weeks ago. Toyota and Lexus are there in full force with a range of exciting new products and concepts for the world to see. There’s still time to go. The show closes this Sunday. But, if you can’t make it to Paris, we’ve got you covered. And there’s also something very special going on for us in Paris! More after the break.
Last weekend, we brought our all-new, all-electric TMG EV P002 racer to one of the most challenging races in North America: Pikes Peak International Hill Climb. After 156 corners, 19.99 km and a 1,440 m ascent to the summit at 4,300m, we are now the proud world record holder for EVs at the historic event.
First raced in 1916, this annual event sees petrolheads from around the world taking on the gruelling challenge – also known affectionately as “The Race to the Clouds.” This year’s event was postponed until last weekend following the devastating Waldo Canyon fires in Colorado.
Happy New Year from all of us here at Toyota Motor Europe!
