Racing around the world
Akio Toyoda braves some of the world's toughest races, pushing the limits of his cars and loving
every turn. “Akio's Drive” includes several legs, with special stages, in a special journey
that takes him and Toyota employees on the world's most challenging roads. Each year Akio drives
the same continent as Toyota employees. In 2014, we tackled Australia. Moving on, we traversed
North America in 2015. Then, in 2016, we rolled through Latin America. In 2017, we raced across Europe,
and most recently we journeyed across Africa.
By 2020, the drive will have forged through five continents. An experience from which the true DNA of
Toyota will emerge, ever better.
