The Fine-N



The Fine-S



The CS&S



The CS&S is a 4-wheel-drive mid-engine 2+2 sports car. Employing Toyota's Hybrid Synergy Drive,� an electric motor drives the front wheels, while a gas engine and electric motor in combination drive the rear. CS&S also unveils "Toyota Space Touch," where the driver selects functions by "touching" holographic projections.

The PM



The PM is a personal mobility vehicle that "fits like a glove" to create a feeling of unity between the driver and the vehicle. Cutting-edge vehicle-to-vehicle communications technologies are employed under the concept of "meeting, linking and hanging out together".

The Alessandro Volta



In 1800, Alessandro Volta arranged zinc and copper discs in a column and invented the battery. 204 years later, Toyota has electrified automotive history with the first high-performance hybrid, named in his honor. The Giugiaro-designed carbon-fiber body seats three people abreast and features "drive-by-wire" controls, allowing you to position the steering wheel and pedals in front of any one of them. And the Volta's 408-hp Hybrid Synergy Drive� (a 3.3-liter V6 with an electric motor for each axle) not only delivers 435 miles on a 13.7-gallon tank, but 0-60 acceleration in a mere four seconds. Somewhere, Count Volta is smiling.

^^^ no doubt. and i am seriously into the PM. i think that would be a fine thing to have in the garage, and there would be meets and clubs and rallys i am certain. think of how interesting it would be. it would be a cult. like ours. but even more quirky.

The only one that I have any interest in is the Volta, and it doesn't matter much because it will never come out.

Was it? I mean, obviously someone had to conceptualize it, but these "concept vehicles" never seem to come to fruition...

and about 6 years ago, toyota introduced the bBx concept, which is strikingly similar to the current bB and xB.

Concept vehicles are usually used as design exercises to establish future styling directions, features, drivetrain layouts and brand identity. The concept car is the extreme version of the production car to be. While i think the cCX was an ugly concept car you can see that it explored a lot of the features that made it into the tC. Such as; a high beltline, all glass roof, styling lines, interior layout, etc.
