“The latest Toyota C-HR design study, unveiled at the Frankfurt Motor Show, fore-shadows its production version which will be unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show next March".
“It features bold design language that projects a confident and sporty look while new platform architecture promises an engaging drive experience.”

The new five-door show car builds on the success of the first C-HR Concept that was enthusiastically received when it debuted at the Paris Motor Show 12 months ago.

The C-HR delivers on the promise by Toyota's global president Akio Toyoda to build better cars that bring the fun back to driving. Toyota New Zealand’s General Manager of Product Spencer Morris said the second C-HR Concept heralds an exciting possible addition to the company's local line-up.

"The striking looks, compact packaging and outstanding agility inherent in the C-HR Concept mean the production car is definitely on our wish-list for New Zealand," said Mr Morris.
"Given the right specification, pricing and availability for our market, we would expect the C-HR production model to accelerate the already-hot demand for vehicles in the small SUV segment," he said.

Hydrogen powered Toyota Mirai leads German WRC event

Written by Media Manager.

Toyota Mirai

Toyota’s Mirai hydrogen car kicked off last weekend’s World Rally Championship event based at Trier, West Germany.

Used as a 'zero' course car, experienced rally driver and journalist Mitsuhiro Kunisawa used the car to precede competitors through the stage of the all tarmac event.

To be rally-ready, the Mirai was fitted with a roll cage, race seats and full harness seat belts as well as competition tyres and improved brake pads. To further aid Kunisawa, Toyota Germany provided a mobile hydrogen refuelling unit, which fills the plastic and carbon fibre tank in just three minutes.
The 100 kWs, 335Nm fuel cell power train remained unchanged. It fuses together hydrogen and oxygen in a fuel cell stack to produce electricity – powering an electric motor connected to the front wheels. It’s good for 0-100 km/h in 9.6 seconds and can hit 178 km/h flat out.

Toyota continues support of Emirates Team New Zealand

Toyota New Zealand is proud to continue its long-standing sponsorship of Emirates Team New Zealand as it embarks on its journey towards the America’s Cup in June 2017.

Emirates Team New Zealand came within one race of regaining the world’s oldest sporting trophy at the 2013 America’s Cup in San Francisco, before being pipped at the post by Oracle in a series that had four million Kiwis on the edge of their seats.

The next America’s Cup is taking place in Bermuda and Toyota’s support will be more important than ever for Emirates Team New Zealand in its quest to bring the cup back to New Zealand.

Toyota General Manager of Marketing, Andrew Davis, says Toyota New Zealand’s commitment to the team is testament to Toyota’s faith in their ability to once again provide some fierce competition in the Americas Cup.

Andrew Davis says Toyota is the only major sponsor to have stayed loyal to Team New Zealand for more than two decades.
