Toyota’s vehicles are created using our unique Life Cycle Assessment methodology, leading to some exciting developments. Important steps forward include lightweight engineering for maximum fuel efficiency, the use of recycled materials, and the development of eco-plastic, a world first.

The Prius – which is pioneering the use of eco-plastic – demonstrates the effectiveness of our methods with 95% of the car (including the battery), being recoverable, while 85% can be recycled.

Ecological Plastic - A world first

Toyota’s eco-plastic is the world’s first injection-moulded material to be derived from plants, meeting every safety criteria for vehicle interiors, including heat and shock resistance.
20% less CO2

Ecological plastic emits 20% less CO2 during a product’s life cycle. CO2, which is emitted at disposal, is captured during photosynthesis as the plant grows.
