SPONSORED VIDEO: Toyota Dominoes!!!




Recently, Toyota has release a campaign of Toyota Dominoes which depicts the positive outlook of Toyota being a prominent environmental conscious car company. It is a very nice and interesting campaign as shown in the video below. We usually associate dominoes with falling effect, but in this video, Toyota has come up with in an interesting effect of dominoes picking up themselves with featuring of a stunning imaginary. 

From this unique and innovative video, we can grasp the innovative culture of Toyota which has achieved previously “unimaginable and impossible” goals of the launching the Toyota hybrid system. Toyota which celebrates its 75th anniversary two years ago has come a long way to achieve such a feat and this can be cemented with the rolling out of more than ten million vehicles per year which is a world first. 

Another feat of Toyota innovations is the Toyota’s Hybrid creation that challenges the notion of car with environmental credential and proves the impossible is now possible and this can be seen with the launch of the Toyota Prius in 1997. With its green initiatives, Toyota was the first car manufacturer to commercially mass-produce and sell hybrid electric vehicles and this can been seen as a huge success with millions of hybrid car sold all over the worlds. 

This amazing feat doesn’t stop here, but Toyota push even further with the effort to make “Sustainable Mobility” with the launch of Toyota FCHV in 2002 with world’s first limited sales in Japan and US. This effort has made Toyota set it sight in Fuel Cell Vehicle development whereby “Fuel Cell” generates electricity through chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen which eventually powers the motor. The future is here and hydrogen is set to replace the gasoline as fuel, and Toyota shows that, this innovative future will eventually benefits the environment as the FCV has absolutely zero emission and its environmental friendly energy source can be produced from various raw materials. Now the future is here!!!

Reprising its participation in previous instalments of IGEM since its inception in 2010, UMW Toyota Motor will showcase green technological breakthroughs in the motoring industry through Lexus and Toyota vehicles on display at the highly anticipated event. 

History will be made as UMW Toyota Motor unveils at IGEM 2014 for the first time on Malaysian soil a special display of the Lexus NX 300h. Powered by the iconic Lexus Hybrid Drive – a full hybrid technology that balances powerful performance and environmental efficiency - the Lexus NX 300h will join the ranks of Lexus Malaysia’s existing and highly esteemed range of hybrid models including the CT, ES, IS, GS, LS and RX. 

UMW Toyota Motor announced the order taking of the all new Lexus NX starts on 16 October 2014 onwards. Below is the summary of the estimated On-The Road prices (OTR) that are available for the All New Lexus NX variants. 




Seamlessly blending agility and stability, the Lexus NX represents a highly innovative luxury compact cross over vehicle into the Sports Utility Vehicle (SUV) market. The NX answers the call of a new generation of consumers who discern sportiness and individuality without compromising on comfort and practicality. 

The Lexus NX features world firsts for the Lexus marque. Besides the hybrid variant, the 2.0L Turbo variant features an industry-leading turbocharged gasoline engine which is developed in-house by Lexus with a combination of top-level fuel economy and exhilarating performance. 

Malaysian residents will be able to place orders for the Lexus NX vehicle at all Lexus centres in Malaysia from 16 October 2014 onwards.

This is made possible thanks to reduced mass at just 786 kg, reduced road and air resistance, a highly efficient powertrain, effective thermal energy management and reduced power consumption by half of that of traditional B-segment cars of its kind.

“We are truly glad to be participating yet again in another instalment of IGEM. As can be testified by both the Lexus NX 300h and the Toyota FT-Bh on display, as we showcase Toyota’s commitment to continue developing even better cars to benefit the people and the environment,” said Datuk Ismet Suki, President of UMW Toyota Motor.

Datuk Ismet Suki also commented on consumer speculation that vehicle prices will go down following the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) in April 2015. He stressed that consumers should not adopt a “wait-and-see” approach in buying cars as year-end promotions could be more attractive than a probable zero to minimal price change following the GST implementation.

“Now is the best time to buy a car. The affect GST will have on car prices is relatively uncertain. To say that prices will go down because the 6% GST will replace the existing 10% Sales and Service tax is too simplistic. There are more factors at play, especially in the automotive market. We cannot be too sure until the GST is fully implemented,” he explained.
