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

 
Toyota will debut a particularly interesting concept car at Milan Design Week this year, making a point of being both environmentally friendly and emotionally valuable to the individual that buys it. The Toyota Setsuna, powered by an electric motor and with a retro open-wheel and open-cabin design, is built from Japanese wood — cedar and birch, with no nails or screws to hold it together — and is built to last a century of use.
