Months after Nigerian man built his, Toyota set to launch wooden car


When the story of a young Nigerian man from Bida, Niger state, that built a car using wood and a motorcycle engine, was shared here, many mocked him. But just few days later, Toyota announced that it will launch its wooden car, Setsuna, made primarily of wood, at Milan Design Week in April.

While reacting to the news, Anu Busari ( @alasheyla.vvsg ): “Made in Nigeria wooden car & Toyota made wooden car. Lets encourage & support our local mades, it can get better than this. #isupportlocalmade.”…. bt will buy Setsuna….
