Celebrating El Cajon’s Tax Rollback!

Posted on: April 15, 2015

Today, April 15th, we celebrated alongside Mayor Bill Wells (El Cajon), Jill Kobe (Parkway Plaza GM), Eric Lund (East County Chamber of Commerce GM), Chris George (Valley of Cars Dealers Association President) and the El Cajon community in celebration of the half percent tax cut made in El Cajon!

El Cajon has become the only city in the state of California to cut taxes in 2015 while 45 other cities have implemented a tax increase or renewed their existing tax rate.

Taxes were originally increased to improve safety facilities such as police stations and fire departments. With goals being met through the tax increase, El Cajon has implemented a tax rollback. Reducing taxes from 9.0 percent to 8.5 percent will create a savings of $8.6 million to El Cajon residents which was demonstrated by a giant check made out to The Citizens of El Cajon.

How the Toyota Mirai is Made

Posted on: February 24, 2015

A production ceremony was held at Toyota’s Motomachi Plant in Toyota City, Japan today to mark the milestone for the future of vehicles with the production of the Toyota Mirai.

The Motomachi Plant has over 50 years of production under its belt and has produced other great vehicles such as: “Corona”, “Soarer”, “Supra”, “RAV4”, and the Lexus “LFA” supercar – among others. The highly skilled craftspeople of the Motomachi Plant are no stranger to an intricate building process, hand-building the 500 series limited Lexus supercars to some of the highest standards ever seen in the industry.

The same detail oriented craftsmanship will be shining through the production of the Toyota Mirai with an estimated 3 units produced each day.

Take a look at the care used during the entire manufacturing process of the Mirai.

Toyota Named One of “World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies”

Posted on: February 10, 2015

Leave Your Mark.

Fast Company magazine has just named Toyota as one of the world’s most innovative companies as they lead the way in fuel-cell technology. As Toyota did with the Prius, the Toyota Mirai (Japanese for ‘future’) will be the future for zero-emission vehicles.

Mirai

With 1,500 orders in Japan the first month of sales, Toyota is confident the release of this innovative vehicle in the fall of 2016 for California dealerships will have a similar success story. 3,000 units will be produced for California buyers priced at $57,000.

To fuel the Mirai, there is an obvious need for hydrogen fueling stations and it is roughly estimated for California to have 50 fueling stations by the release of the Mirai. Additional 12-25 stations are planned to be built by 2020 stimulating the growth of Toyota’s fuel-cell technology for the future. Developers are confident that 75 hydrogen fuel stations can sustain a population of 17,000 to 24,000 hydrogen-fueled vehicles.
