    Speaking of brakes, a significant improvement is the introduction of an electronic parking brake, replacing the outdated foot brake that previously attracted criticism for its perceived old-fashioned technology.

With a nod to carbon neutrality and electrification, he underscored Toyota's commitment to diverse mobility solutions, keeping in line with the "Mobility for All" philosophy.
