Easy To Recycle
- Easy to dismantle
- mproved TSOP plastics for recycling
- Bio-degradable interior trim
ES3 has been designed with recycling in mind. It is easy to dismantle and the number of potentially harmful substances has been reduced.
An improved Toyota Super Olefin Polymer (TSOP) is used in several interior and exterior components, including bumpers and side panels. TSOP is easy to recycle and is widely used across the Toyota model range.
Bio-degradable plastics, derived not from petroleum but from plants such as the sweet potato, are used on the interior trim and natural fibres, from plants such as bamboo and flax, are used in pillar trim.
The ES3 is free of polyvinyl chloride (PVC) even in its wire harness sleeve and the use of lead in items such as paint and light bulbs has been drastically reduced.
- Streamlined exterior
- Light airy interior
- Centralised control panel
Light colours and a simple, airy design characterise the interior. Controls are grouped together for easy access while displays are placed further away to minimise driver eye movement. The ES3 has electro-luminescent displays for speedometer, air conditioning and audio controls on a transparent glass surface for high legibility.
There is a navigation display, digital audio and a newly developed, single control button for all other ancillary functions.
