    I assume that Toyota has objective reasons to target tech savvy customers for the sales of EVs. I may not be wrong to say that cost and environmental awareness are factors that customers consider before deciding to purchase an electric vehicle. The youth and the general population are more technically savvy today than ten years ago. Toyota needs a preliminary study (such as survey or else) before rolling out their ads. It is very possible that they have already completed such study.
