Toyota at the Tokyo motor show – all the news and information in one place
Toyota had plenty to put in the spotlight at the Tokyo motor show, but the display of four new concept cars, together with new Prius and the C-HR crossover concept, is only part of the story. Toyota has taken the opportunity to explain more about a wide range of its technical and R&D projects and its long-term environmental ambitions.
All the media materials have been brought together on a special Toyota Media Tour 2015 micro-site here, including more about Mirai and the concept of a future hydrogen society, the progress of the all-electric i-ROAD, the development of Toyota Safety Sense and research into automated driving and ITS. There are details about all the Tokyo show cars and an insight into the Toyota New Generation Architecture – TNGA – that will provide the foundation for both new Toyota models and the methods used to manufacture them.
The content includes both text and downloadable images. In addition UK press material previewing the Tokyo show concept cars is available here.
