On June 13, 2019, Toyota Motor Corporation announced the company will expand its Toyota ZEV Factory, which it established in October last year with the aim of speeding up decision-making, effective July 1.
In addition to the Toyota ZEV Factory's current responsibilities related to business strategy planning for battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), as well as its responsibilities related to development planning and product development for BEVs, integrating into it functions related to FCEV development and manufacturing will result in full consolidation of planning, development, and manufacturing processes for all of Toyota's zero emission vehicles (ZEVs).
Toyota will take up the challenge of constructing new business models that incorporate productization with a sense of speed together with many partner companies and groups, as well as incorporate alliances with and sales to other companies.
In addition, Toyota will establish the Vehicle Development Center, effective July 1. By consolidating the functions of advanced planning and advanced development of the TNGA Management Division and of the in-house Advanced R&D and Engineering Company with a portion of the product planning and system development fields of the in-house Powertrain Company and linking such to lean processes ranging from advanced planning and advanced development to mass production development at its in-house companies responsible for specific vehicle types, Toyota will aim to increase development speed.

On June 12, Toyota Motor North America (TMNA) announced two feature updates to its vehicle lineup, Automatic Engine Shut Off and Automatic Park.
Starting with most model year 2020 vehicles, Toyota will provide additional features such as automatic engine shut off or “Auto Shut Off” with an enhanced audible and visual warning to its Smart Key System (SKS).
The Auto Shut Off feature will automatically shut off the engine after a pre-determined period of time if the vehicle is left running.
Future enhancements will include smartphone App capabilities as an added reminder.
Also, starting from model year 2020, Toyota will begin to phase in Automatic Park, designed to help reduce the risk of roll-away.
The feature will be available in vehicles with electronic means of shifting and/or applying the parking brake, and is designed to automatically shift the vehicle into the “park” position and/or apply the electronic parking brake, in the event the driver exits the vehicle without placing the vehicle in “park.”

Reported on June 12, 2019, Toyota Motor Thailand remains keen to capture Thailand's van market, expecting to sell 9,600 vans in 2019, up 23% YoY, as the government clamps down on fixed-route public vans. This was revealed by the company on June 11 at the launching event of the CKD all-new 6th generation Toyota Commuter, which Toyota Auto Works (TAW) spent THB 2.5 billion to build the new model.
Toyota also reported that the fifth generation sold in the local market for 15 years, with total sales of 178,000 vans.
Toyota is optimistic that Thailand's tourism sector has potential enough to boost the van market.
Toyota also mentioned that Thai-made Commuter is exported to Vietnam at a clip of 2,500 vans a year. The company is also seeking new markets for the van's sixth generation.
