Toyota Concepts at Tokyo Motor Show 2015

Tokyo Motor Show being the home event for Toyota, they tend to bring out concepts that appeal most of all to the Japanese audience. This year their offerings include three compact concepts called Toyota FCV Plus, S-FR, and KIKAI.

Each of these Toyota Concepts represent a different field Toyota excels at. The first, the FCV Plus, is a fuel cell concept that “embodies Toyota’s vision of a hydrogen-based society,” says the company. As befits such a concept, it has a design straight out of science fiction.

The more interesting of 2015 Tokyo Motor Show Toyota Concepts, to us at least, is the S-FR. It is pitched as a “fun-to-drive entry-level lightweight sports car,” and although it looks like a cartoon character, we like it because it is in essence Toyota’s MX-5, a simple, honest to God sports car designed to deliver bucket loads of fun.

Last but not least, we have the Toyota KIKAI. With a name like that you know this thing is going to be trippy, and indeed it is. Toyota says this concept celebrates “the innate beauty of machinery,” which explains why some of its inner bits and bobs are exposed and left on display for everyone to see.
