NEW YORK ? Toyota has launched a new global corporate advertising campaign, highlighting the company?s leadership in developing environmental technologies now and for the future.
Over an image of a Toyota Prius, the television commercial states:
It?s earned the love of millions of Toyota owners.
And has saved an estimated billion gallons of gas.
And it?s paving the way for the next generation of vehicles.
Like cars charged at home, or that run solely on electricity,
or consume hydrogen and emit only water.
Even more solutions and the shape of ideas to come, from Toyota
