TopGear.com.ph Philippine Car News - PIMS teaser: Toyota displays Hybrid X

There’s no better way to get more excited about the 3rd Philippine International Motor Show--which opens in a few hours--than to take a sneak peek at the display of Toyota, the leading car brand in the country.

Toyota Motor Philippines responds to the automotive industry’s call to raise awareness on environment-friendly motoring by displaying the Hybrid X concept car at the World Trade Center in Pasay City for four days starting today.

“The Hybrid X rewrites the design rule book for hybrid models with creative solutions that would become the norm for future hybrid designs,” Toyota said in a statement. “Engineered to provide a multi-sensory experience, the futuristic exterior shape offers a clear and visionary insight to the interior. Interactive navigation, driving information and comfort control allow complete driver control at the touch of a screen.”

The Toyota Hybrid X, which debuted at the Geneva Motor Show in 2007, is designed to influence the entire brand and its hybrid models in the future.

It comes with an open-space family car concept to fit four passengers. It measures 4,500 millimeters in length, 1,850mm in width and 1,440mm in height.

The Hybrid X is equipped with a drive-by-wire steering pad that features a central screen that displays information like the energy flow path, fuel consumption and gear position--all to make the driver more aware of his energy consumption.

“Hybrid X is a vision for future environmentally friendly motoring,” Toyota said. “It fits clearly within Toyota's environmental strategy of offering sustainable mobility for modern families. Hybrid X further extends the use of Hybrid Synergy Drive' which is becoming an enabler for vehicle concept innovation and allowing Toyota to push forward to new frontiers.”
