Toyota is Most Awarded Automaker at 2016 R&D100 Awards

In a press release issued earlier today, Toyota proudly reported that it was the most awarded automaker in R&D Magazine's R&D100 awards. The annual awards recognize the year's top 100 innovations in the global research and development space. It's fitting that Toyota would do well, given that the company has been awarded more patents than any other automaker over the past eight years.

At the November 3rd event, which was held in Washington, D.C., Toyota was recognized twice for its advancement in hybrid and electric vehicle technologies, including a dynamic wireless charging system and a traction inversion system that allows for more efficient use of battery power. Toyota's third award was for advances in thermal cooling in the Land Cruiser Prado.

“As companies in the automotive industry transform themselves into broader mobility providers, no auto company better demonstrates innovation and technology for the future than Toyota,” said Jeff Makarewicz, senior vice president, Toyota Technical Center (TTC), Toyota’s North American research & development headquarters. “We’re focused on delivering great experiences for our customers, a cornerstone of Toyota’s product commitment, and this recognition is proof we’re living up to that promise.”
