Tokyo — TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION (TMC) announces that its new “iQ” ultra compact—a vehicle that dispels conventional notions about small cars—has made the Good Design Award 2008 Best 15* list and is in the running for this year’s Good Design Grand Award*, to be announced on November 6.

Additionally, the Lexus “IS F” and the Toyota Partner Robot “MOBIRO” mobility robot and “Winglet” personal transport assistance robot have each won a Good Design Award, while the “Crown Comfort” has received a Good Design Long Life Design Award.
