It won’t beam you up, but Toyota Motor Corporation’s personal transport unit will get you from point A to B. And now the Winglet is headed to the “streets” – actually public sidewalks – in a real-world test of functionality, convenience and safety. Overall, the trials should help determine how the Winglet supports public mobility, improves the environment and invigorates local communities…in other words how it helps us live long and prosper.
1. What is Toyota 100 Cars for Good? Toyota’s 100 Cars for Good program is a Facebook-enabled philanthropy initiative whereby Toyota will give 100 cars in 100 days to 100 deserving charitable organizations. The 100 Cars for Good program is the first Toyota initiative that engages the public to determine how corporate philanthropic donations will be awarded. 100 Cars for Good was introduced in 2011, and Toyota has brought the program back in 2012 due to the success and popularity in its inaugural year.
