Toyota Motor Corp. President Akio Toyoda, left, Vice Chairman Takeshi Uchiyamada, center, and Chairman Fujio Cho pose for photos after a press briefing at the company's showroom in Tokyo Wednesday, March 6, 2013. Toyota has tapped a former executive at U.S. rival General Motors to be on its board, the first time in the Japanese automaker's 76-year history it is appointing board members from outside the company. Former President Cho will become honorary chairman and leave the board, while Uchiyamada, a board member and engineer known as "the father of the Prius," Toyota's prized hybrid model, will become chairman.
