What should you be watching to know that your Toyota position is safe?

In this video, Motley Fool analyst Blake Bos focuses on Toyota Motors (TM 0.79%) and tells us about the three key areas about the carmaker that investors need to watch.

The first key is to look at is the Chinese market, as China is one of the biggest markets for all Japanese auto manufacturers. The recent disputes between the two countries have affected the sales of some of the major Japanese manufacturers, which is why Toyota might have some problems reaching target sales in China.

The release of Toyota's upcoming models is the second key area to look at. The company has a reputation of making quality vehicles, with the Corolla being one of its most successful. Therefore, investors should watch Toyota's upcoming models, including its latest Corolla for the U.S market.

Green technology is the third area to monitor at Toyota. The company is famous for its green technology and is still one of the leaders in manufacturing cars loaded with it. So, investors should watch the company's current position with green technology and whether it can stay on top in this particular segment.
