Toyota is getting ready to greet visitors at the 2016 Paris Auto Show with a host of European debuts.
Among those, the Japanese-based manufacturer will mark the local premiere of the all-new Prius Plug-in Hybrid, which will hit showroom floors after debuting earlier this year at the 2016 New York Auto Show.
Joining it is the FCV Plus, a concept presented in 2015 during the Tokyo Motor Show, which is said to help the automaker examine “how future hydrogen cars can contribute to society”. One of the most important features of the study is its ability to generate electricity from hydrogen stored outside, besides the one found in its own tank, transforming it into a stable source of electric power.
A large section of the stand will be reserved for the display of the C-HR small crossover, which makes its full public debut in Paris, after its exterior design was revealed at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show. Based on the company’s new global architecture, which is also found under the latest Prius, it features a 112 HP 1.2-liter turbo or a 122 HP 1.8-liter hybrid. The crossover is expected to become a best-seller in Europe, where Toyota wants to move between 50,000 and 100,000 units.
Finally, the automaker’s booth will celebrate the launch of Toyota Gazoo Racing, an “entity that unites all Toyota motorsports activities under one umbrella”, which aims to put the racing technology in the development of “ever-better cars”.
