Climbing into a car that's been parked for a while on even a moderately sunny day can be an uncomfortable experience and is likely to provoke full-blast operation of the air conditioning, using up fuel and increasing emissions. Toyota has solved the problem with a new solar-powered ventilation system that keeps the interior cool, with no need for the engine to be running. And to make sure the temperature is just right before you get inside, it has produced the world's first Remote Air Conditioning control, operated

It is said that when you are at the top, the only way you can go is down. Not so for the remarkable Toyota Prius, which this summer takes its advanced hybrid power technology and environmental leadership on to a higher level.

Early indications are that the iconic Toyota iQ is already becoming more to its owners than purely transportation.
A good example of this is desert adventurer and author Tom Sheppard who, when he is not travelling across the Sahara or writing his new book “Quiet for a Tuesday,” is designing a unique colour scheme for his own iQ. Mocked-up on his computer and precisely executed by GSK Bodyworks, round the corner from his local Toyota Centre in Luton, it has generated nods and smiles fro
