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.
