Making their world debut in Tokyo will be the 1/X (pictured), RiN ‘well being’ concept, i-REAL personal mobility vehicle, Hi-CT urban vehicle, FT-MV minivan and the Crown luxury sedan hybrid concept. Cars we’ve already seen before include the iQ minicar from Frankfurt and the FT-HS sports hybrid concept.
Looking at the 1/X, it’s easy to surmise that this could be a preview of the next-generation Prius hybrid. The concept features a very familiar profile and an advanced hybrid drivetrain.
The i-REAL, meanwhile, is being touted as a step toward commercialization of personal mobility and is the fourth concept from Toyota in personal mobility vehicle development after the PM, i-unit and i-swing.
The other major newcomer is the Crown luxury sedan concept, which will showcase Toyota’s latest VDIM (Vehicle Dynamics Integrated Management) hybrid drive system. It has a two-stage motor speed reduction device that helps achieve smooth acceleration, high fuel efficiency, low CO2 and other exhaust emissions and quietness. It also has a LCD "Finegraphic Meter" interface system as well as ten airbags and generous seating for five occupants.
