Yesterday Toyota got the right to be first and central presentation at Tokyo Motor Show 2017. Official speaker was vice president Of Toyota Didier Leroy.
Leroy is first non Japanese top-manager in the company, and he successfully joked that the Frenchman is actually opened the Toyota’s presentation in the Tokyo!
It was 10 new concepts! Some of them could be in the mass production shortly in the company’s showrooms. However, other examples looks more like experiments which should go through some development steps.
One of the most exciting concept-car was new Crown which Toyota is planning to sell in the 2018. As you remember this model have been running since 1955. Toyota didn’t specify what changes did they make to the Crown; however, they told it’s going to be interesting for the driver…
Company generally talks about “connected cars” technology which is going to be in the new Crown. This is data sharing across the cars. This could develop from the car safety to the city safety. By the way there are going to be an additional benefits, for example, with non-stop data flow the car will help choose the road without traffic jam and also create a remote car’s diagnostic.
Latter “N” in the Crown looks suspiciously… Broken probably…
Toyota Century changed his generation for the third time in the last 50 years. Inside the car is going to be hybrid powerplant which include 5,0 liters V8 2UR-FSE, previously it was V12.

Concept of TJ Cruiser includes itself quality of minivan and crossover. Letter “T” stands for toolbox and latter “J” stands for joy. It is difficult to say is this car ready for the mass production but it looks pretty interesting.
