Sho Watabe
These days automakers just aren't making cars I'd want to drive. If you look at the way cars are designed these days, they all look the same. They all lack personality ... If automakers keep making the same types of cars, young people are going to continue turning away from

Jake Fisher - General Motors

These are auto manufacturers that are very slow and methodical as they add to that technology. With General Motors, they put out a lot of new product very recently, and they are struggling with that.

If it weren't for teachers at these schools who are so underappreciated, who are so undercompensated, putting their talents and taking the time with kids like myself, who were very difficult to work with – I was really ADD and all over the place and they were so patient with me.

Akio Toyoda - Toyota

EVs (electric vehicles) remain in focus at the moment however customers and the market will eventually choose which powertrains will achieve success. Toyota will continue to concentrate on powertrains that concentrate on hybrid technology, including fuel cell vehicles, plug-in hybrids and– although we were a bit late to the game–

Jim Ratcliffe

Workers' skills are a challenge in the UK – not an insurmountable challenge – but you would need to train a complete workforce in the UK. Nissan have done it and Toyota have done it in Derby but if you go to places like Germany, you've got a trained workforce. It was the world's most famous car. It conquered the planet in many ways. It was the world's best off-road vehicle – not the most reliable – and we lamented its demise two years ago when Jaguar Land Rover said it was stopping production. It's 67 years old but it still looks cool

Takeshi Uchiyamada - Toyota

But as laws and regulations (that encourage the development of electric vehicles) come into effect in places like China and the U.S., car makers will have no choice but to roll out electric vehicles or risk going out of business. Toyota is no exception, but we're skeptical there would be a rapid shift to pure electric vehicles, given questions over user

Oliver Hayes - Friends of the Earth

Encouraging the sale of electric VWs is clearly welcome, but knocking £10K off a £32K Golf still puts it beyond the reach of many people driving the oldest, most polluting cars that urgently need taking off the roads in order to protect our children from growing up with lungs damaged by air

Steve Gooding

Scrappage schemes are fast becoming the autumn fashion in car showrooms, with no manufacturer wanting to be left behind in either the commercial or PR stakes. There's no harm in that if the result is a good deal for consumers and a positive impact on emissions. The acid test is whether the savings on offer are large enough to make brand new models affordable to people and businesses who might normally buy

For a technology company which lacks the expertise in making cars, Mazda could look like a very interesting acquisition. They're very good, they're not too expensive. Maybe Toyota realises this.

While estimates of how long the dodgy Takata airbags take to break down vary, it's deeply concerning to think these bombs in a bag lie in wait in many popular cars, poised to explode their deadly shrapnel into unsuspecting victims.

We are regulated by the officials to have a maximum temperature that we can run at, of 32 degrees, although it could well be above that in the race.

The auto industry is undergoing big changes, and issues and ideas which we may have thought were far off in the future could affect us tomorrow. That's why we need to go on the offensive while also preserving our areas of strength.

Akito Tachibana - Toyota Kirloskar Motor

We think that hybrid and plug-in hybrid technology is the best solution in

Itsuki Kurosu

Regulations on lower emissions vehicles are changing very quickly, so we also have to respond quickly. With its small size, the new venture will be able to be more nimble in its planning and decision making, to speed up the process to develop electric

Nicholas Weindling - JPMorgan Chase & Co.

Japan has been famous for its consumer electronics and auto manufacturers, such as Panasonic or Toyota, but these sectors are highly competitive, often suffer from overcapacity, face ongoing price pressure, are dependent on overseas markets and consequently growth opportunities are likely to be limited going

Shigeki Tomoyama - Toyota Motor

We don't consider these new services to be negative for us. If increased vehicle usage increases the rate at which cars are replaced, this could increase car sales ... and if more ride-hailing companies use cars from our fleets, then our customers will

Shigeki Tomoyama - Toyota Motor

While we're a company that makes and sells cars, at the same time we're a developer of mobility

Koji Toyoshima

It's a tall order to develop a lithium-ion car battery which can perform reliably and safely for 10 years, or over hundreds of thousands of kilometers. We have double braced and triple braced our battery pack to make sure they're fail-safe ... It's all about safety, safety,

Hiroaki Takeuchi - Toyota

Our control system can identify even slight signs of a potential short-circuit in individual cells, and will either prevent it from spreading or shut down the entire

Hiroaki Takeuchi - Toyota

The environment where our lithium-ion batteries are produced is not quite like the clean rooms where semiconductors are made, but very

Eric Rask

State of charge management, safety management and algorithm development is becoming one of the higher tiers of proprietary internal development. It's very internal, very strategic, and companies are seeing management algorithms as a competitive

Jake Fisher - General Motors

If you look at the top three it is Toyotta and Lexus, no surprise there. But above any of the Japanese automakers – above Honda, above Subaru – we see Buick, and that is a big

Jim Lentz - Toyota

We will be working with over 1,000 new staff member throughout numerous functions, and our hope is that they will assist us in Toyota's mission to address mobility challenges for everybody, now and in the

Akio Toyoda - Toyota

There is a limit to the research and development that a company can do individually. In addition to the R&D which each company is working on individually, it is very important now to have partners who share the same goal and passion. We would like to always keep our doors open for new partnership opportunities, which will contribute to the making of ever-better cars as well as to the development of the automotive

Hilary Cain - Toyota Motor

If we do not do exactly what's being asked of us voluntarily by NHTSA, we can not test an automated system in the state of California. That is unbelievable which suggests testing that is happening today might be halted which indicates testing that will be started might be

Hilary Cain - Toyota Motor

The problem is there is going to be accountability and there is going to be enforcement. We need to go through this with a fine tooth

Fuminori Kataoka - Toyota Motor

He wobbles a bit, and this is meant to emulate a seated baby, which hasn't fully developed the skills to balance itself. This vulnerability is meant to invoke an emotional

Koji Toyoshima

We need to see that kind of volume with the plug-in during the upcoming 'step' phase, as we did with the second-generation conventional Prius, to achieve the momentum to get to the 'jump'

Mark Mulligan

They're making people choose between a Lexus and getting the bus with nothing in

Mike Whitfield

The new wage agreement gives us a platform on which we can plan further investment in the

Karl Brauer

Where you used to see the Accord and Camry as the iconic brands for Honda and Toyota, I think you will now see CR-Vs and RAV4 take that over. I think the SUV is now going to become the new benchmark car for the American car

Michael Lord

It's a mandate for us to produce vehicles, but there is no mandate for customers to buy

Michael Lord

It just takes time. Just as with hybrids, every generation is better the one that came

Mary Nichols

I'm concerned. It's a very ambitious goal and would require -- if you look at where we are today and where we need to go -- a big change in what consumers are seeing and what they're

Rafael Chang

A few weeks ago, we restarted our assembly operations here in the Cumana plant for our three models, Corolla, Hylux and

Mark Faber

What they produce can be produced by Mercedes, BMW, Toyota, Nissan. Anybody in the world can make it eventually, at much lower cost and probably much more

Scott Fink - Hyundai of New Port Richey

I have built my sales and my reputation at Hyundai as being the value brand. I understand the company's desire to move upstream...but now you're in the same ocean with Toyota and Honda, and Toyota and Honda most specifically in the U.S. have a much longer and better reputation than Hyundai, and we're not there

Kim Tae-nyen

This could inevitably undermine the price competitiveness of South Korean automakers in UK, as opposed to Japanese and German rivals which have production bases

Christopher Richter - CLSA

No one is going to rush out and do anything tomorrow, but rather than revamp a plant in the UK to produce a new model, they might revamp a plant somewhere else. Down the line, it could lead to job

Becky Mueller

This is an important aspect of occupant protection that needs more attention. More than 1,600 right-front passengers died in frontal crashes in

Steven Curtis - Toyota Motor North America

Looking ahead, we've incorporated enhancements on both the driver's and passenger's side for vehicles built on Toyota's new TNGA platforms, beginning with the 2016

Becky Mueller

When structural improvements are visible only on the driver side, there are large differences in performance. But the inverse is not true. Some vehicle structures look the same on both sides, but they don't perform the same. That's why we can't rely on visual analysis but need to monitor this issue and possibly begin rating vehicles for passenger-side

Jim Holder - Autocar

The electric movement really is gathering pace, legislation demands that it does and the car makers are starting to see that customers finally are willing to buy electrified

Alex Goy

There's always space for people to be imaginative because legislation and rules doing the rounds, you know, they dictate certain things: headlamp height and safety, things like that, whereas a concept car shows people that this is what cars could be, this is what we can really, actually properly do if we're given the space to do

Mario Lozoya - Toyota

Now that we have some power back in some areas, we are starting to see the real damage, and a lot of it is water

Akio Toyoda - Toyota

Earnings results in the past few years have been largely helped by foreign exchange rates. But since the start of this year the tide has

Bill Fay - Toyota

With the Prius Prime's 22 miles of electric range, over 50% of Americans can get to work and back home without using a drop of gas, and for those who can charge at work, that number jumps to 80%. And for those with longer commutes, they can rely on the most fuel efficient hybrid system in the

Karl Brauer

We're used to seeing domestic brands like Mercury, Oldsmobile and Plymouth die ... but this is the first time a U.S.-specific brand, launched by a successful Japanese automaker, has been

Jim Lentz - Toyota

This isn't a step backward for Scion; it's a leap forward for Toyota. Scion has allowed us to fast track ideas that would have been challenging to test through the Toyota network. I was there when we established Scion and our goal was to make Toyota and our dealers stronger by learning how to better attract and engage young customers. I'm very proud because that's exactly what we have

Christopher Richter - CLSA

I can easily see the Daihatsu brand used in the same way that VW uses Skoda or Renault uses Dacia or Nissan uses Datsun as a low-cost, sub-premium brand to the core brand. That could be a very effective weapon against Suzuki in places like India ... if I were Suzuki that would sound like a risk to doing business with

Akio Toyoda - Toyota

Our commitment is to have a fuel cell car in the Lexus brand around

Ken Bernard

The suspects in this crime are two male Asian adults. The males are being described as wearing white t-shirts and blue jeans. The suspects, we believe, fled in a 2009-2012 dark color, dark gray, or black, Toyota

Dana Wolman - Engadget

It is this sort of chicken and an egg situation where if people aren't replacing their hardware – their TVs – then there really isn't an urgent need right now, at least for content providers to scale up to 4K because even now though we see a lot of this at CES and it's fun to look at these really expensive TVs, most people aren't buying one right now and most people don't own a TV like

Dana Wolman - Engadget

LG is just the latest company to announce a curved gadget. In this case it's the LG Flex 2, a curved smartphone. But it's only the latest curved gadget we've seen. Samsung came out with a curved all-in-one computer for the home and so far there are already curved TVs, curved monitors, curved smart phones, curved sound bars. Really, these companies are trying to make curved happen whether you are interested or

John Gomez - Gomez

The problem is that this problem is sort of a ghost in the machine that is in the Toyota system. It doesn't leave a fault code, it doesn't leave a footprint and you can't make it happen on

Mike Michels - Toyota

While our analysis is not finalised, Toyota believes there are significant inconsistencies between the account of the event of March 8 and the findings of this investigation. To say this incident was sensationalised would be an enormous

Tony Rackauckas

Toyota knowingly sold cars and trucks with defects that caused Toyotas to accelerate suddenly and uncontrollably. These defects exist in hundreds of thousands of Toyotas sold to Californians over the last several years. Toyota has known about these defects, but intentionally did not disclose them to California

Rakhim Oshakbaev

Take South Korean company Otto, which entered the confectionery industry, or the automobile assembly industry. Several corporations like Toyota, SsangYong, or Iveco began to organise production lines in

Jesse Jackson

The vote made us feel good about ourselves. But there was another element that felt very threatened and they should not have. The south should not feel threatened by our progress. Civil rights have made the new south prosper. I mean, you could not have had the investment of Honda, Mitsubishi, Toyota, all of them have invested in the south, the new professional athletics teams in the south, the Olympics in the south – the new south has been born again because of the civil rights laws. And so the irony is those who would benefit the most become oftentimes the most mean or the most

Shinya Uchiyama - Honda

The battery that is under the boot in the Insight we've moved to the centre of the car, freeing up space at the back. We've also improved the car's performance and balance by placing the heavy battery in the

Jim Lentz - Toyota

If you notice that your accelerator pedal is slow to return or if it begins to stick, please contact your Toyota dealer as soon as possible. If that's not taking place, go to the Toyota website at and it will explain which vehicles are affected by this

Graham Caroll - Tesla Motors

The combustion engine is a dinosaur and I think it is absolutely the right time to introduce a new technology

Trevor Finn

It's nothing to do with Britain booming. It's to do with car manufacturers doing better deals because they

Dominick Chiumento

Despite Senior Investigator Vescio's own injuries, he remained focused and committed to saving the life of the operator of that Toyota. If not for his swift response, the situation could have turned much

John Vescio

It happened so quick. It was hard to think. I pretty much just

Katsuaki Watanabe - Toyota

While there are some signs in some countries – such as China and India of a recovery – Europe and the US still need time to recover economically and normalise their financial markets, and therefore we are preparing ourselves, for the foreseeable future, for difficult times

Akio Toyoda - Toyota

I realised again that our products are our lives, and the quality of the products – especially those related to safety – is our

The company is committed to becoming the leader in the world of electric vehicles and we are doing all we can to achieve that goal together with our alliance partner,

Koji Endo

The last time we had protests like this in 2010, the effects only lasted about a month, but I think this time is going to be different. This is going to have a serious

Daniel Coppens

In the future, it's going to be increasingly difficult to buy an engine which does pollute, so people will spend more money on a little more comfort, on how the vehicle's interior is fitted

Satoshi Ozawa

We are not going to change our thinking towards China and, obviously, we will carry on making and launching cars that please Chinese drivers and contribute to the development of Chinese

Cody Lusk

We're trying to reassure as many customers as we can that the fix is going to come sooner rather than later, but the most important thing is we want to get it

Katsuaki Watanabe - Toyota

The world market is currently contracting and that is the environment we have to operate in, so new plant expansion is just not possible right

Ray LaHood

If anybody owns one of these vehicles, stop driving it, take it to a Toyota dealer because they believe they have a fix for

Takahiko Ijichi - Toyota

Cost performance and quality are not mutually conflicting. Something that is high quality has a better cost performance. And so, we have no plans to lower quality in order to increase cost

Michael Kirsch

The bottom line is that NASA analysis and testing did not find evidence of that malfunctions in electronic and throttle control caused large unintended accelerations as described by consumer

Akio Toyoda - Toyota

The new platform of sustainable growth has just begun. I really hope this year will be peaceful so that our efforts start showing tangible

The important thing is to put the greatest effort into trying to sell

François Roudier - Comité des Constructeurs Français d'Automobiles

We are happy sales have stopped plummeting. They've hit the lowest point and are starting to recover. But realistically sales this year will be the worst since the crisis the French industry suffered in

Koichi Kondo - Honda

As Toyota has been the forerunner of the Japanese car industry, we are concerned about the impact that the huge recall by Toyota could have on consumer sentiment towards Japanese

Takahiko Ijichi - Toyota

We have seen increases in the number of car orders from areas such as Japan, Asia and Russia. Additionally, our efforts in dealing with the strong yen have paid off, and our efforts to reduce costs have been more successful than our original

Taro Aso

I sincerely apologize for my failure to unite the LDP. I think the LDP party should humbly reflect upon the nation's criticism and make a fresh

The world's changed drastically in a year, and faces a once-in-a-hundred years crisis, with a far faster, wider, and deeper impact than

Taro Aso

I think the global economy has just embarked on building a new world order after such financial chaos, and I understand that Japan has a responsibility to meet expectations it will contribute to finding an answer. Decisive action is called for to tackle such a
