Toyota commemorates British support with donation

Japanese motor manufacturer Toyota is celebrating its contribution to the British motor industry with a vehicle donation.

The company is to hand over the Carina E model, the first to be manufactured in Europe, to Heritage Motor Centre in Gaydon, Warwickshire.

Since 1992, some three million motor engines have come off production lines at its plant in Burnaston, in addition to 2.5 million vehicles.

Rt Hon John Hutton stated that the British motor industry has "gone from strength to strength over the past decade", singling out manufacturers such as Toyota major contributors to the sector.

"We’re now making nearly twice as many cars every year compared with 25 years ago – and around a fifth of these are made by Toyota here in the UK," said the expert.

Toyota’s philosophy, which it refers to as zeronise, concerns the reduction of traffic deaths, road congestion and pollution.
