There is no doubt 2020 has been a challenging year, with the COVID-19 global crisis having a significant impact on business, retail, our working lives, and most importantly, to family and friends. We are navigating through uncharted waters, where the situation is fluid and little is certain.
Amidst the challenges of COVID-19, Toyota Australia has reached a significant milestone this year, celebrating 60 years of operations. We have maintained our position as the top selling automotive company in Australia for the 17th consecutive year and we are transforming to become the most admired mobility business.
We have a leading role in the transition to a decarbonised future and we are committed to electrification, with our strategy built on hybrid vehicles and other alternative powertrain technologies such as hydrogen powered fuel cells.
Whilst we currently find ourselves in uncharted territory, our focus remains on our people. We are placing emphasis on our employee’s and dealer’s mental health, along with supporting our customers as they face challenges as a result of COVID-19.
I am confident that through the strength of One Toyota that we will come out of this storm stronger. COVID-19 will pass, and we will get through this together.
