Toyota has offered a glimpse of what’s to come at the Japan Mobility Show 2023 in Tokyo with a trio of intriguing concept cars.
Two of these concept vehicles remain shrouded in mystery, their low-slung designs hinting at the anticipation of new and innovative features. The other concept, however, is fully exposed, and it’s unlike anything we’ve seen before. Sporting a boxy design, this small-sized electric vehicle (EV) embodies the practicality of minivans and light commercial vehicles. Distinct pixel-style LED headlights are integrated into a digital panel that could potentially display messages. The car boasts an inclined windshield for improved aerodynamics, a sliding door on the profile, and narrow windows connected to the rear glass. A roof rack adorned with a kayak and adventure gear suggests it’s designed for camping and adventure enthusiasts.
Toyota’s exhibit lineup also features an array of production vehicles, some of which have already been introduced to the market. These include the IMV0 / Rangga multipurpose truck, the Toyota Hilux BEV concept, the recently launched Toyota Crown Sport, the Land Cruiser J300, J250, and J70, and the new Century SUV flagship.
Beyond showcasing vehicles, Toyota aims to entertain visitors with activities involving music, dance, and gaming. Attendees can partake in the “Capsule Bar” and stand a chance to win miniature cars in a capsule by answering a simple question. A photo spot with a moon-traversing buggy seems to reference the Baby Lunar Cruiser EV concept. Additionally, Toyota will introduce a new technology that allows wheelchair users to operate driving simulators like Gran Turismo 7 without using accelerator or brake pedals.
The Japan Mobility Show 2023 is scheduled to run from October 26 to November 5, with a press day preceding the event on October 25.
