…Introducing 20 years of hybrid technology
Toyota Motor Corporation is set to participate in this year’s Automobile Council event holding over the course of 3 days from August 4 (Friday) to August 6 (Sunday) at Makuhari Messe (Mihama-ku, Chiba City).
In keeping with the theme of the “20-Year Anniversary of the Prius,” Toyota will introduce key highlights of the development of the first generation Prius, as well as the Prius’s impact on society, alongside a storied history of the different sources of power used in automobiles.
Furthermore, in addition to the first generation Prius and the new Prius PHV, a leading car in the Prius series, Toyota will exhibit the “Toyota Sports 800 Gas Turbine Hybrid” concept vehicle, which was displayed at the 1977 Tokyo Motor Show, and the “TOYOTA GAZOO Racing TS050 HYBRID,” which races in extreme endurance races.
In a statement released on Friday, Toyota extolled the importance of the event’s goal, which is to create an automobile culture in Japan, saying it will continue participating following last year’s “50-Year Anniversary of the Corolla” exhibit.
