A 10,000 km Hydrogen Journey Linking Thailand and Hokkaido


As Toyota partners with Thai conglomerate CP in the pursuit of carbon neutrality, commercial vehicles are set to play a leading role in shaping the future.

“Let’s do what we can right now.”

This was the key phrase during last December’s announcement of a collaboration between Toyota and the Charoen Pokphand Group (CP), Thailand’s largest private company. A few months on, Toyota Times News delivers the latest update on carbon neutrality in Thailand.

Kicking off with must-see scenes

With Toyota’s vision of a hydrogen society, this spectacle may become an everyday sight.

Despite its Thailand location, this shop floor may look very familiar to Japanese viewers...

And who could this be, wishing good luck for the long journey ahead?
