A main goal of the planned technology is to develop quieter components that keep pace with EV engines, which make significantly less noise than combustion engines. Toyo has identified the importance of developing rubber products that hush noise over uneven road surfaces while maintaining performance as a key element of EV development. The company sees its automotive products, such as tires and air suspension, as an integral part of vibration control that play an important role in maintaining quietness, comfort, and safety.

GLM launched full-scale mass-production of their Tommykaira ZZ electric sports car in October 2015. The following year, GLM attracted attention when it presented its concept car –  GLM G4 – as a futuristic electric supercar at the Paris Motor Show 2016.
