Toyota presented its vision for the future of mobility at this year’s Tokyo Motor Show, where three very different new concept cars were revealed. While some of the vehicles on display represented the development and commercialization of groundbreaking new technologies, others seeked to explore and strengthen the emotional bond between car and driver.

Toyota’s commitment to advanced powertrain technology was represented by three models: the all-new Prius, the Toyota C-HR Concept, a compact hybrid crossover, and the Toyota FCV Plus, a fuel cell concept that embodies Toyota’s vision of a hydrogen-based society.

While the above vehicles represented the ever-changing nature of mobility, Toyota also showed two concepts created to reaffirm the fundamental relationship between car and driver: the Toyota S-FR, a fun-to-drive entry-level lightweight sports car, and the Toyota KIKAI, a design concept that reminds us of the innate beauty of machinery.

Main vehicles on the display

  • The all-new Prius (Japan premiere), the bold next generation of Toyota’s hybrid pioneer
  • The Toyota C-HR Concept (Japan premiere), a compact hybrid crossover set to go into production soon
  • The Toyota S-FR (world premiere), a lightweight, sporty concept offering a fun, responsive driving experience
  • The Toyota FCV Plus (world premiere), a concept vehicle created with a future hydrogen-based society in mind
  • The Toyota KIKAI (world premiere), a concept that encourages us to appreciate the beauty of machines

Also on display was a test vehicle currently under development with a view to participation in the FIA World Rally Championship, and a Land Cruiser (Australian specifications) used in the Toyota Discovery Tour, an employee driving project launched in June 2015. Toyota also introduced Kirobo Mini, a robotic communication partner always at the customer’s side.
