Establishment of a new office to prepare for the foundation of the “International Nuclear Energy Development of Japan(tentative name)”

Friday, July 9th, 2010

Japan – A consortium of six Japanese companies comprising The Tokyo Electric Power Co., Inc., Chubu Electric Power Co., Inc., Kansai Electric Power Co., Inc., Toshiba Corporation, Hitachi, Ltd., and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd., has established a new office to set the stage for the foundation of a new company which has been tentatively named “International Nuclear Energy Development of Japan”. This new company will be engaged in the activities to establish proposals for nuclear power plants projects in the emerging countries.

A “planning committee” established by the designated Japanese entities having an interest in nuclear power (METI, electric power companies (Tokyo, Chubu and Kansai) and plant manufacturers (Toshiba, Hitachi and MHI) ) in June has been considering a public-private proposal that will aim to receive nuclear power plants project orders in Vietnam. The decision to set up the aforementioned office prior to the launch of the new corporate entity was made to ensure the swift execution of the promotion activities.

The official launch of “International Nuclear Energy Development of Japan” is scheduled for autumn of 2010 to be followed by the proposal of a comprehensive package that will allow the dissemination of Japanese technologies and know-how that have been cultivated over many years. In accordance with the needs and expectations of Vietnam and other emerging nations, these will include actual power plant construction, O&M and human resource development, all to be bolstered by legislative and financing support from the Japanese Government.

Hitachi, Toyo Engineering and Eastern Star Gas Agree to Conduct Feasibility Study on Electric-Motor-Driven Mid-Scale LNG Plant

Friday, May 28th, 2010

Tokyo, Japan, – Hitachi, Ltd. and Toyo Engineering Corporation (TOYO) announced that they have signed an agreement with Eastern Star Gas Limited (ESG), an Australian gas and coal seam gas (CSG)*1 development company, to conduct a feasibility study for an electric-motor-driven Mid-Scale LNG plant in Newcastle in the state of New South Wales, Australia. ESG has plans to export LNG starting in 2014, and this study will investigate the economic feasibility of an electric-motor-driven Mid-Scale LNG plant.

At present, multiple CSG drilling projects are being conducted in Australia. ESG owns the largest CSG block in New South Wales, and has plans in hand to begin exporting LNG in 2014. ESG will begin by exporting 1 million tons of LNG to Japan and other countries in the first year of operations, eventually raising exports to over 4 million tons a year.

The electric-motor-driven Mid-Scale LNG plant to be studied was proposed jointly by Hitachi, leveraging its strengths in electric-motor-driven technology accumulated in rolling stock, steel plants and other areas, and TOYO, drawing on its strengths in project management and system integration gained in the plant engineering field, based on the LNG liquefaction technology supplied by Chart Energy & Chemicals, Inc. Compared to large base-load plants, this type of plant is progressively scalable, and the project period from initial consideration to completion of construction can be roughly halved. Coupled with the fact that they cost less to construct, these LNG plants are ideally suited for small- to medium-sized gas fields. This joint Hitachi/TOYO feasibility study will look at the economic feasibility of the LNG plant and technology related to all-electric systems.

Toyota Extends Brake Override Feature to Provide an Additional Measure of Customer Confidence

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

Toyota Canada today announced that it will install a brake override system on an expanded range of customers’ vehicles to provide an additional measure of confidence. This braking system enhancement will automatically reduce engine power when the brake pedal and the accelerator pedal are applied simultaneously under certain driving conditions.

The following models have been added to the list of vehicles that will receive the brake override upgrade: 2005-2010 Tacoma and 2009-2010 Venza. In addition, Toyota Canada will provide the brake override system for owners of 2008-2010 Sequoia vehicles. Toyota previously announced that the system would be installed onto the 2007-2010 Camry, 2005-2010 Avalon, and the 2007-2010 Lexus ES 350, 2006-2010 IS 350 and 2006-2010 IS 250 models.

The brake override feature is not an integral part of the campaigns currently being undertaken by Toyota Canada which include Tacoma and Venza models but is being added as an extra measure of confidence for Toyota owners. It will be installed on Tacoma and Venza at the same time as the improvements previously announced for those models are performed. Notification to customers regarding brake override installation for Sequoia will be sent separately.

In addition to upgrades on existing vehicles, this feature is scheduled to be incorporated into future new production of most Toyota and Lexus models sold in Canada by the end of 2010.

Extension of the brake override system to the expanded range of models is the latest step in Toyota’s commitment to building the safest and most reliable vehicles on the road and to ensuring our customers are confident in the cars and trucks they drive.

Detailed information and answers to questions about issues related to these recalls are available to Toyota Customer Interaction Center at 1-888-TOYOTA-8.

Testimony of TMS President and COO James Lentz to House Committee on Energy and Commerce

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2010

Chairman Waxman, Subcommittee Chairman Stupak, Ranking Members Barton and Walden, members of the Committee, thank you for inviting me here today. My name is Jim Lentz, and I am the President and Chief Operating Officer of Toyota Motor Sales, USA.

In my testimony, I will address Toyota’s recent recalls and the decisive steps we are taking restore the trust of the tens of millions of Americans who purchase and drive our vehicles. two generations, we have provided Americans with cars and trucks that are safe and reliable. And we fully intend to produce even safer, high quality vehicles in the future, even as we the way with the next generation hybrid and electric vehicles that our society needs.

In recent months, we have not lived up to the high standards our customers and the public have come to expect from Toyota. Put simply, it has taken us too long to come to grips with a rare but serious set of safety issues, despite all of our good faith efforts. The problem has also been compounded by poor communications both within our company and with regulators and consumers. While all auto companies have recalls and all major auto companies have experienced complaints about unintended acceleration, Toyota’s recalls have caused concerns among our customers.

I would like to assure the Committee, and the American people, that nothing matters more to Toyota than the safety and reliability of the vehicles our customers drive. We are committed not only to fixing vehicles on the road and ensuring they are safe, but to making our new vehicles better and even more reliable through strict quality control, enhanced communication and a redoubled focus on putting our customers first.

Our 1,500 dealers are making extraordinary efforts to complete our recalls as quickly and conveniently as possible. Some dealers are staying open 24/7 and they are repairing vehicles at a rate of about 50,000 a day. To date, we have repaired close to a million vehicles.

We have rigorously tested our solutions and are confident that with these repairs, Toyota vehicles will be among the safest on the road today. Our engineers have identified two specific, mechanical causes of unintended acceleration covered by the recalls and we are currently addressing these through the open recalls. One involves floor mats that when loose

or improperly fitted can entrap the accelerator pedal. The other concerns accelerator pedals that can, over time, grow “sticky” with wear. The solutions we have developed are both effective and durable.

 

We are confident that no problems exist with the electronic throttle control system in our vehicles. We have designed our electronic throttle control system with multiple fail-safe mechanisms to shut off or reduce engine power in the event of a system failure. We have done extensive testing of this system and have never found a malfunction that caused unintended acceleration.

 

Additionally, in December we asked Exponent, a world-class engineering and scientific consulting firm, to conduct a comprehensive, independent analysis of our electronic throttle control system with an unlimited budget. Their interim report confirms that it works as designed. Toyota will make the results of this comprehensive evaluation available to the public when it is completed.

 

Why did it take so long to get to this point? With respect to pedal entrapment, Toyota conducted investigations of customer complaints which focused too narrowly on technical issues without taking full account of the way customers used our vehicles. And in the case of sticking accelerator pedals, we failed to promptly analyze and respond to information emerging from Europe and in the United States.

We acknowledge these mistakes, we apologize for them and we have learned from them. We now understand that we must think differently when investigating complaints and communicate faster, better and more effectively with our customers and our regulators. Our recent voluntary recalls of certain 2010 Prius and Lexus hybrids and of certain 2010 Tacoma trucks illustrate this new approach.

We are also going further. Our President Akio Toyoda has announced a top-to-bottom review of our operations that he will lead personally, with the support of new Chief Quality Officers for North America and our other principal regions. We will ask independent, outside experts to evaluate the findings to make sure we meet or exceed industry standards.

We are expanding our network of technical offices in the U.S. so we can gather information faster and respond more aggressively to incident reports. And, we will install advanced brake override systems in all our new models – making us one of the first full-line manufacturers to offer this customer confidence feature as standard equipment. Additionally, we are announcing that we will install this system on an expanded range of vehicles – including the Tacoma, Venza and Sequoia models – that are capable of accepting the new software. We had previously announced that the system would be installed onto the Camry, Avalon and Lexus ES 350, IS 350 and IS 250 models. These actions underscore that Toyota is going above and beyond making the necessary vehicle modifications and repairs to ensure that our customers can be completely confident in the safety and reliability of the cars and trucks they drive.

Chairman Waxman, Subcommittee Chairman Stupak, Ranking Members Barton and Walden, members of the Committee, these are only some of the steps Toyota is taking to earn back the confidence of Congress and the American people. Our 200,000 team members, dealership employees and suppliers in the United States are the backbone of that effort – and I am confident we will succeed in restoring customer trust in the quality, safety and reliability of our vehicles.

Thank you. I look forward to your questions.
