Giving the idea behind the introduction of the 2020 model of ‘Toyota Starlets’, Mr. Takuya Kajiura told the Ghana News Agency, that it was coined from the national Under-17 football team, the Black Starlets, which made history by defeating Brazil to win the FIFA U-17 Soccer World Cup in 1995.
The Black Starlets had a dream to make it to the top with style, performance, and speed.
“These are the attributes of this new Toyota we unveil today, with a name that resonates and attracts attention in Ghana.” Mr. Kajiura explained.
Toyota Ghana, he said, had commissioned an ultramodern facility for vehicle sales and spare parts in Tamale, to provide customers within the northern enclave an opportunity to experience the Toyota way.
He stressed the company’s resolve to strive and achieve its corporate objectives despite the challenges automobile industries had faced in the COVID-19 era.
