Toyota has announced its vehicle highlights for the upcoming Paris Motor Show, from 27 September. The Paris Motor show will see  the European Premiere of the New Prius Plugin Hybrid, a car built on a Toyota New Global Architecture (TNGA) platform, and boasting exceptional efficiency thanks to its new plug-in hybrid powertrain.

Aside from the Prius Plugin Hybrid, Toyota will be showcasing the FCV Plus. With this concept, Toyota examines how future hydrogen cars can contribute to society. A portion of the grandstand at the Paris show will be dedicated to the anticipated Toyota C-HR.Crossover SUV. This C-segment crossover makes its full public debut at Paris, following its first preview at the recent Geneva motor show.

2016 Toyota C-HR

The new Toyota C-HR, aka Coupé High-Rider, remains remarkably true to the general features of the concept-cars that attracted so much public attention in Paris in 2014 and in Frankfurt in 2015. Its coupe-like lines are a testimony to the resolve of its designers to create a style that stands out in the Toyota range, and to establish a new direction amongst mid-sized crossovers.

With the C-HR, Toyota targets a clear and singular customer profile. Predominantly driven by emotional considerations, these customers want individuality, and to be the first to try new experiences and products. Style and quality are essential considerations in any purchase they make, and the car is an extension of their personality. The Toyota C-HR’s unique character demonstrates the flexibility that the TNGA (Toyota New Global Architecture) gives to vehicle developers in the three key areas of design, powertrain and dynamics, enabling them to deliver a new and fresh take in the crossover segment. First deliveries of the C-HR for the European markets are expected to commence at the end of the year.
To sum up its Paris MS showcase, Toyota is showcasing the TS050 Hybrid; the active factory-backed challenger in the WEC (World Endurance Championship).
