Believe is up to its 20th issue! That’s 20 different magazines in the past 10 years. To celebrate we take a look back at where we have come from and how we have evolved in the past decade.
We unpack some of the stories that have put Believe and all its values into practice. Whether they are following our brand ambassadors and all they do or our closely aligned partnerships, each in its own way makes up the essence of Believe.
We’ve enjoyed and continue to delight in telling the story of Kiwis and what makes New Zealand a great place
Great new product updates feature too in this issue of Believe. The next-gen RAV4 – the best-selling SUV in New Zealand and the world. After 14 years Hiace takes on a new look and finally, the fun doesn’t stop with the all-new, fifth-generation Supra.
The future is closer than we think as we look at some future technology at the CES (the Consumer Electronics Show).
How to talk about: Dollars and Sense
There are some topics of conversation that people generally avoid so they don’t change the vibe of the room. It might be politics, religion or hamming on about your love of sausages while attending a conference for vegans. For lots of New Zealand families, we don’t talk about our incomes or our loans or our debts because we were brought up not to talk about it.
You don’t often sit at the dinner table with your in-laws and ask them how much of their wealth you stand to inherit and how much longer they expect to live. It’s too awkward – and inappropriate. A lot of people who struggle financially have never had the opportunity to talk about money. Our children need a safe place to discuss and learn about all of these sensitive topics. Especially if it’s about something as important as money.
Like a Diamond
As part of its plan to offer an electrified version of every vehicle in its range by 2025, Toyota will be introducing a self-charging hybrid powertrain to the facelift C-HR due in New Zealand at the end of 2019.
Hiace, the dependable ‘go-to’ van and passenger transporter for more than five decades, has been radically re-worked from top to bottom in its new, fifth-generation guise. Hiace is so ubiquitous it’s almost the household word for van.
The first New Zealand testing of Toyota Gazoo Racing New Zealand's ft-60 open-wheeler got underway in early September with the car running at both Hampton downs and Manfeild circuit Chris Amon - the venue for the country's annual grand prix event.
Start Your Impossible
What’s your goal or dream? That was Toyota’s question to more than 30,000 kids in the lead-up to and during the 2018-2019 Sanitarium Weet-bix kids Tryathlon series, where Toyota launched its ‘Start Your Impossible’ campaign.
Targa has been labelled the ultimate road race here in New Zealand. Every year Targa New Zealand organises multiple rally events across the country, including Hawke’s Bay and Taupō through to Palmerston North.
Mobility for All
Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota), worldwide partner of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, recently announced it will provide a full line-up of electrified vehicles, including unique versions of certain vehicles as well as vehicles developed specifically to support the Olympic and Paralympic Games Tokyo 2020 (Tokyo 2020).
