Toyota is bringing the future of the automotive industry into clear focus at the American International Auto Show in Detroit. Leaps in technology are escorting in a wave of brand new conceptual ideals for how people could be transported in the future, with a strong focus on clean power, state-of-the-art safety and more convenience.At Toyota’s NAIAS booth, attendees can get a glimpse at this transformational change to mobility from January 16 – 24th, while showing off the full line of new cars, trucks and SUVs available today!
In addition to the Mirai, Toyota’s groundbreaking fuel cell electric vehicle powered by hydrogen, Toyota is showing the FCV+ concept vehicle. The concept vehicle demonstrates Toyota’s vision of a connected and sustainable hydrogen culture. It is capable of generating electricity directly from hydrogen stored outside the vehicle and thus operating as a stable source of electric power for use at home or on the go.
The Toyota KIKAI, also displayed, discovers and highlights the central appeal of machines: their fine craftsmanship, their beauty, simplicity, and their fascinating motion. As a true concept car, the Toyota KIKAI’s appeal is both free from and reliant on the core concepts of automobiles – it reminds us of the appeal of the physical and tactile in a digital age.
No look at the future of mobility is complete without a reflection on the past. The “Back to the Future” Tacoma, a re-creation of Marty McFly’s dream truck in the iconic 20th century film series, is also on display Detroit! Toyota created the one-of-a-kind truck to celebrate October 21, 2015 – the futuristic date first introduced in Back to the Future Part II – with a number of modifications to the all-new 2016 Toyota Tacoma for a modern-day version of the classic from the movie.
