In addition, TMC is also pursuing a carbon-neutral system by using plant-based materials, which grow by absorbing the CO2 in the natural environment, for interior and exterior components. As a result, even if these components are incinerated upon disposal (thermal recycling), there will be no overall addition to the amount of CO2 in the environment. <br> ▪ The latest IT/ITS peripheral-monitoring technology makes driving easier</B> <p>Source - Toyota.co.jp

I don't know about that, if they make it to production there could be a bit of pick-up, but I don't forsee anything major in the auto industry in terms of sales because of the ideas from this show.
