Toyota is working overtime to create a flying car by 2020. Toyota is investing resources in the startup, Cartivator, by “chipping in 40 million yen ($353,000) and offering the expertise of its mechanical engineers.”
According to Engadget:
Thedrone-like vehicle would soar 10 meters (33 feet) above the ground at speeds up to 100 km/h (62 mph). The “Skydrive” is being developed by Cartivator, a startup with around 30 young volunteers working with drone expert Masafumi Miwa from Tokushima University. The aim is to get the car flying by next year and have it commercialized in time to light the 2020 Tokyo Olympic games torch.
Hi, I’m Christina Colosimo from Oak Lawn Toyota’s oaklawntoyotablog.com.
As a small family-owned business on Chicago’s Southwest side, we’re honored to take part in initiatives that positively impact our community. From donations to local food pantries to sponsoring little league teams and more, we do what we can to better our surrounding neighborhoods.
When crisis strikes another community, it’s our duty as Americans to rise up and support our friends by easing their pain until a solution is put in place for them. That’s why we’re collecting cases of water to donate to Flint, Michigan, through their local Catholic Charities chapter. For every case donated, we’ll match that contribution. So stop in with your case of water and let’s show our friends in Flint how much we care about them.
On behalf of Ronnie Colosimo and the entire Oak Lawn Toyota family, thank you for your generosity and let’s do our part to make a difference in the lives of Flint residents.
According to Catholic Charities’ Flint Water Recovery Site, water must come in cases, not individual bottles. If you’d like to make a monetary contribution to their water recovery efforts, please click here and scroll down to the bottom of the page.

According to Bloomberg News, “U.S. car thefts with keys left inside jumped 14 percent from 2012 to 2014, reaching 44,828 last year, according to a study issued Monday by the National Insurance Crime Bureau. The actual number is probably higher because some people don’t admit their carelessness to police or their insurer, the NICB said.”
Toyota has officially announced the addition of the Toyota Rav4 Hybrid to the lineup! More details will be revealed at the New York Auto Show on April 2. In the mean time, let’s get super excited for this news!
