On the sidelines of Auto Expo 2023, while interacting with PTI, the company noted that the automaker is conscious of the fact that a huge amount of forex goes into the import of fossil fuels. "So that is perhaps one of the biggest problems for the country. So, we are trying to do whatever possible to support what the government wants to solve," Yoshimura stated.

The company has committed to carbon neutrality by 2050 and aims to achieve net zero carbon in manufacturing operations by 2035. In India, Toyota recently launched the pilot project on Flexi-Fuel Strong Hybrid Electric Vehicle (FFV-SHEV) Technology.
