Porters 5 Forces
1. Rivalry among competitors

High: competition in the auto industry is very strong
2. Threat of new entrants

Low: products within the auto industry require a lot of revenue and special attention. The auto industry is dominated by a few widely known firms, so entry into the industry is very difficult.
3. Threat of substitutes

High: when auto prices rise, there are many different substitutes for transportation. Walking, biking, taking a train and riding a bus would all be examples.
4. Bargaining power of suppliers

Low: there are many different suppliers for the auto industry. Cooling systems, breaking systems, and fuel supply systems are distributed through countless suppliers around the globe.
5. Bargaining power of buyers

Very High: the more informed a buyer is, the more bargaining power they have. Automobile buyers have easy access to information on how to purchase the right vehicle, thus the bargaining power of buyers is very high.
Strategic Implementation
Invest more time and capital into research for compressed natural gas and hydrogen cell technologies in cars
Continuing to establish partnerships with companies that have the skills and technologies to pursue alternative fuel sources
Strategic Recommendations

3. We believe that Toyota should continue to develop processes that will increase the fuel efficiency and longevity of the vehicle.   One such process will be the implementation of start/stop technology in more of their cars
1. Invest more capital into cars that are targeted towards younger people

Focus on PR in order to gain back customer trust

Longer warranties

Advertising strategy targeted towards younger market
3. Focus on innovative transmissions. Expansion of monocoque frames in SUVs.

What makes a young automobile buyer interested in a purchase?
CNW Marketing Research discovered that young car purchasers were primarily concerned with:
Low price
Good Value
Long Warranties
The average price for the segment purchases was $15,000.
Toyota’s Vehicles Aimed Towards the Young Demographic
The Yaris – starting at $14,115
The Prius C – starts at $18,950
The Yaris
The main vehicle for Toyota’s attempts to win the young target market segment
Faces competition from:
Kia Rio
Ford Fiesta
Hyundai Accent
Honda Fit
Chevy Sonic
The Toyota is losing the market compared to competitors
Currently Still Losing
Sales for the Yaris have decreased over 50% compared to last year
Honda’s equivalent to the Yaris, the Fit, has seen 32% sales growth in the same period
This is evidence that Toyota needs to do something to compete more effectively in this target market segment
Our strategy for Toyota is to:
Invest more time and capital into research for alternative fuel sources
Continue to develop processes that will increase fuel efficiency and longevity
Better target the young market segment of car buyers
