Toyota unveils the C-HR concept for Paris Motor Show

Toyota will unveil its new C-HR Concept at the Paris Motor Show, a vision for a hybrid-powered compact crossover that displays an emphatic new design language. The show car gives an early hint of a kind of vehicle Toyota would like to bring to market. This is the same crossover that Toyota had initially shared a teaser of. The Japanese automotive giant will also showcase the new electric vehicles also at the Paris Motor Show.

The C-HR Concept introduces an expressive new design approach with a diamond styling theme. Beneath the flowing cabin profile, the lower bodywork has been sculpted to create faceted surfaces, like the precision cutting of a gemstone. The frontal treatment marks a development of Toyota’s current design cues and the introduction of themes which signal a future direction for Toyota vehicles. The unveiling of the C-HR Concept and a press conference will take place on the Toyota stand in Hall 4 of the Paris motor show, at 8am local time on 2 October.

Toyota has been focusing on hybrid and electric vehicles at the Paris Motor Show and will see more products from the Japanese auto maker in the coming months based on this technology. This is a steady growth in the demand of electric cars and buyers in the developed markets are preferring greener and cleaner vehicles to reduce the carbon footprint. Some of the countries have even set-up charging stations and United States of America is working on setting up more hydrogen gas stations across the country. The government is helping to set-up such an infrastructure in the US and even in Japan. Europe too is seeing a steady growth in this.

In profile, the facetted treatment of the lower body, the muscular wheel arches and angular rear shoulders are juxtaposed with an exceptionally sleek cabin profile.  At the rear, distinctive, aero-inspired floating rear lamp clusters add further emphasis to the vehicle’s broad-shouldered look.
