With help from Toyota, Romy Camargo and his wife Gaby have opened Stay In Step, a spinal-cord injury rehabilitation and recovery center designed to help paraplegics and quadriplegics from across the country. The project is especially close for the Camargos: Romy himself is paralyzed from the shoulders down, a result of a sniper’s bullet on his third tour of duty in Afghanistan. Continue Reading →
The Toyota Mirai has already been making headlines, and now the soon-to-be released hydrogen fuel cell electric vehicle has already set a record. On one fill of hydrogen, the Mirai drove 312 miles. This gives it the longest driving range of any zero emission vehicle on the market, and the only zero emission vehicle to top the 300 range milestone.
“Toyota realized in the early 90’s that electrification was key to the future of the automobile,” said Toyota North America CEO Jim Lentz. “Just as the Prius introduced hybrid-electric vehicles to millions of customers nearly twenty years ago, the Mirai is now poised to usher in a new era of efficient, hydrogen transportation.” Continue Reading →
The Democrats and Republicans may spend most of their time playing each other in the U.S. Capitol Building, but annually they move outside to the Washington Nationals stadium for the Congressional Baseball Game. This year, the score favored the Democrats, but San Francisco Toyota is proud to announce Toyota also made a valuable contribution at the event, donating $300,000 to the Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy to help expand Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) education opportunities and cultivate leadership. Toyota also presented an award to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America 2014-2015 National Youth of the Year, Maryah Sullivan. Continue Reading →
This summer, people will be taking on the road with different methods of transportation. At San Francisco Toyota we’re partial to cars, but it is important to prioritize safety and share the road with everyone.
Practicing good safety with motorcycles involves maintaining a safe distance behind them. Since motorcyclists can slow down by shifting to a lower gear, their brake lights do not always turn on. Additionally, since they are much smaller, your car poses a much bigger threat to them than they to you. Always signal what your next move will be, and take the time to look all around you before merging, braking, or turning. Continue Reading →
