The question mark was my addition to the headline. I wonder if this what the motivation behind this comment from Toyota’s Jim Press was, saying “technology is key” or if he even said it at all.
“…a high-ranking Toyota executive said Tuesday that technology and innovation have the industry well-positioned for long-term growth.”
But to sum it up as “technology is key” sounds something more like a GM or Ford comment. Toyota normally talks about people and employees being key, how technology is something to support their people, not the primary driver. I doubt that’s really changing, regardless of what the headline said here.
What do you think?
