Toyota Motor Philippines (TMP) continues to showcase the benefits of vehicle electrification in the latest leg of the Hybrid Campus Tour series at the Don Bosco Technical College in Mandaluyong, Metro Manila.
TMP brought its all-new Corolla Altis Hybrid units for its first public test drive since its introduction in September. About 50 students signed up to try out the Prius C and the All-New Corolla Altis hybrid variant.
A total of 465 Bosconian students from different fields joined three batches of educational seminars conducted by Toyota during the October tour – the highest participation record to date for the Hybrid Campus Tour series since its inception in March 2019.
Toyota’s technical experts also gave experiential lessons to the students and faculty through a whole day test drive activity inside the school grounds.
“Toyota’s initiative reflects the global shift to cleaner energy sources, and addresses the numerous crises we are experiencing now,” said TMP First Vice President Cristina Arevalo in the TMP report sent to Good News Pilipinas.
“From energy conservation, transportation, and global warming, TMP wants to make sure that we are doing our part for a more sustainable future. We chose to start with university students because they are the shapers of tomorrow.”
Both faculty and students of Mechanical Engineering, Architecture, Electronics & Communication Engineering, Computer Science, and Aviation Mechanical Technology were able to experience firsthand Toyota’s hybrid technology.
Student-trainees from Don Bosco’s Technical Vocational courses were also given the chance to drive the hybrid vehicles and discover the inner workings behind each model’s seamless driving.
In their press statement, DBTC Director Engr. Winston Dereje expounded: “We educate for life—this is the mission of all Don Bosco Educational Centers. Through this partnership between Don Bosco and Toyota, our students were able to understand the science behind hybrid tech, and how it helps the environment by lowering our carbon footprint. It is truly a technology with a soul, and an inspiration for the young to be lifelong learners.”
Aside from the hybrid electric cars, attendees at the Toyota Hybrid Campus Tour in Don Bosco Technical College Mandaluyong were also treated to interactive displays like the stationary bike charger and multimedia exhibits.
To know more about the Prius, Prius C, and the Corolla Altis Hybrid, please go to any of Toyota’s 70 dealerships nationwide.
The Toyota Hybrid Campus Tour was also hosted at De La Salle University Manila.
TMP initiatives for schools also include the recently-concluded Toyota Young Marketeers Challenge which was won by students of the University of the Philippines.
