Geneva Motor Show Will See Two New Toyota Concepts

Convertible FR-S to be on display

Reports indicate the Toyota is set to show off a pair of new concept vehicles at the Geneva Motor Show. One of the concepts is very likely to go into production and is a convertible version of the FT-86 sold in the United States as the Subaru BR-Z or the Scion FR-S.

The coupe version of the vehicle drawn a lot of comparisons to the Mazda Miata since it debuted. Ahose comparisons are certain to grow now that the convertible version is being shown off. Thker B6e second concept vehicle to be shown in Geneva is called the Toyota i-road.

This vehicle is supposed to be a compact emissions free personal mobility concept. The idea is to provide quick and efficient urban transportation for two people. The car reminds me of a cross between a motorcycle and a micro car.

Toyota to ramp up Tacoma production in Mexico by 41%

Sep 21 2014 10:12am CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Truck, Plants/Manufacturing, Toyota The Toyota Tacoma may be getting on in age, but that isn't stopping the Japanese manufacturer from ramping up production at the pickup's Baja California factory. The Mexican plant will soon be home to another 300 jobs as it increases total capacity by 41 percent. The increase is slated for April 2015. The move is a curious one, considering the Tacoma's age and the fact that General Motors is preparing what, on the surface, ap ...

Sep 21 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Top Speed

Remember the Rocketman concept Mini unveiled back in 2011? It was a dolled-up three-door hatch that was about a foot shorter than the regular Mini Cooper, and had a panoramic glass roof and a carbon-fiber spaceframe. Its main highlight, besides the fancier looks, was its 78 mpg U.S. estimated fuel economy rating. Initially expected to spawn a production car, the Rocketman remained a concept only. That’s about to change according t ...
