There is no doubt that globally, we are at a turning point. The automotive
industry has been experiencing disruption from non-traditional players and
will continue to do so in the future.
While maintaining our position as the top selling automotive company in Australia for the 16th consecutive year, 2019 is shaping up to be a year of forward momentum in Toyota Australia’s transformation from an automotive company into a mobility company.
In the face of disruption and change, we are staying true to the values that have long
guided the way we do business, that of respect for people and continuous improvement. It’s through these lenses that we now further delve into areas such as alternative fuels or drivetrains, carshare services, autonomous driving trials and connected vehicles, to ultimately contribute to a zero-carbon society.
As we undergo unprecedented changes, the focus on our guests is as important as ever, particularly in the face of eroding trust in business in general. And similarly, we are placing more effort and resources into enriching the community around us, through the Toyota Community Trust, sponsorships, and sharing the Toyota Production System through the TSSC Australia team.
As our vision of ‘creating innovative mobility solutions for all Australians’ is beginning to take shape, I am confident that through the strength of One Toyota – together with our dealer network and Toyota Finance Australia – that the future of Toyota Australia will be bright.
