High-tech Toyota line-up in Tokyo

The 2015 Tokyo Motor Show is the last event in the motoring year, and it attracts a dizzying variety of innovative concept cars. Not all of the new technology and production vehicles on display will be on sale in Europe, but many are. This event is a good opportunity to see what the Japanese manufacturers are working on.

Toyota’s show of concept and production models is one of the largest and most diverse. Showcasing everything from the eagerly-anticipated S-FR sports car to the 10cm tall ‘Kirobo Mini’ robot which can carry on an authentic conversation, the Toyota stand is sure to draw the crowds.

The SF-R will be Toyota’s entry-level sports coupé when it is released in the UK in early 2017. Not a great deal is known about its performance figures but it will weigh less than 1,000kg and be powered by a 1.5-litre petrol engine, developing around 130bhp.

Toyota’s support of the hydrogen movement is gaining momentum, with the unveiling of the FCV Plus Concept. This model is able to generate electricity to be used as a portable source of power or to be fed back into the grid when parked.
