Toyota presented the Hybrid-X concept at the 2007 Geneva
Motor Show a concept car that proposes a new design
language for hybrid models, while also acting as an innovative
technology showcase for future generation hybrid cars.
The Toyota Hybrid-X is designed as a four door, four seat
open-space concept. It has the dimensions of a conventional
family car with an overall length of 4,500mm and wheelbase
of 2,800mm. The width is 1,850mm and height 1,440mm.
The Toyota Hybrid X has been created and developed by
Toyota's European styling centre, ED2, in the south of
France. It proposes unconventional creative solutions
that will themselves potentially become the signature
points of a specific hybrid identity.
Interior designer, Laurent Bouzige, says: "Hybrid
X is conceived as a multi-sensory experience. There is
a formal style in the shape of the vehicle and the material
used but every other reaction is linked to the passengers'
senses of sound, smell, sight and touch through interactive
The strongest form element of the exterior shape is the
two 'U' shapes created by the massive upper glass frame
area and the unconventional A and C pillars. When viewed
from above this gives the impression of a vast X
hence the name of the concept, Hybrid X.
