Last year, was my first visit to the Boston Auto Show. It brought back fond memories of when I used to attend the New York Auto Show with my Dad. I also remember the first time I went alone with friends. It was such a big deal to take the train and ride the subway by myself. Checking out the new cars was always such thrill for me.
2017 New England International Auto Show
Fast forward too many years to admit, and I’m thrilled to be back back at the show known to locals as the Boston Auto Show. This year, I’ve helped select some fantastic Boston Influencers to help share what we learn on January 12 for the media preview day. Follow along with the hashtag #ToyotaBoston on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc.
Top Stories from Toyota
Why Toyota? Because they are our wonderful sponsor this year. One of their top stories is the new Toyota Prius Prime. It’s Toyota’s newest super fuel efficient car. Perfect for both suburban and city car owners, the Prime has the ability to be both a hybrid as well as an electric plug-in. I can’t wait to check it out. Toyota will also showcase the hybrid Highlander, the hybrid RAV4 and the entire lineup of Prius models. Started in 1924 as a gas station, Boston-area Toyota dealer Grappone Toyota will be our hosts to tell us all about what’s new.
A Dealership with Heart
We’ll also hear about how Toyota provides its dealers a matching grant they can use to benefit local charities. Grappone works with Five Rivers Conservation Trust as well as a number of other local non-profits. The Fiver Rivers’ mission is to protect the land along the Blackwater, Contoocook, Merrimack, Soucook, and Warner rivers. The goal is to help communities to maintain a clean water supply and to share their ideas with other river communities as well. We’ll learn more about Grappone’s mission from Amanda Osmer and about Five Rivers mission from Beth McGuinn.
