Toyota Launches Employee Driving Project in Australia

To inspire plans for future models and provide valuable training opportunities, Toyota Motor Corporation today began a project in which Toyota employees put themselves and vehicles to the test over vast distances in Australia, a country with a famously wide variety of roads. Many consider Australia to be the birthplace of Toyota motorsports: in 1957, a Toyota Crown completed the Round Australia Rally. For this year's project, more than 30 Toyota employees, including those of Toyota's Australian subsidiary Toyota Motor Corporation Australia, will take on the country's rough terrain in Toyota Land Cruisers and other models for over 10 weeks until mid-November.
