Two weeks ago, Toyota Motor Europe participated as Main Partner at the EBS, a yearly gathering of leading European politicians, business leaders and opinion formers. This year’s theme – “Putting Europe back on track” – focused on issues mainly related to economic recovery and clean technologies.
Yesterday, I came back from Strasbourg where I had been for the launch of a large-scale Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle (PHV) demonstration in Strasbourg together with the French energy provider EDF, and the City and the Urban Community of Strasbourg. We’ve were lucky to have beautiful weather in a wonderfully picturesque city. There will soon be about 100 PHVs zooming around the region. They are not being driven by Toyota people, but by a group of partners who have decided they want to be involved in this trail-blazing activity, and are willing to commit their own resources to be involved (and a huge thanks to them all).
