Introducing The Toyota CS&S Concept

The Frankfurt Motor Show will be the venue for the world premiere of the Toyota CS&S (Compact Sports & Specialty), a 2+2 open-top sports car which, in terms of size, falls between the current Celica and MR2 models. The car is powered by Toyota’s advanced Hybrid Synergy Drive system, combining a mid-mounted 1.5-litre petrol unit that drives the rear wheels with a powerful electric motor to drive the front wheels.

CS&S proves that hybrid technology is not just eco-friendly, it can also provide a dynamic and highly enjoyable driving experience. Four-wheel drive and excellent acceleration from the electric motor’s high torque underpin the car’s sporting character, while the Hybrid Synergy Drive system delivers benefits in fuel economy and clean running.
