Cool Toyota C-HR Hy-Power Concept

The Toyota C-HR has enjoyed strong success since its launch at the end of 2016, Toyota's entry into the mid-size crossover market making an immediate impact with its striking styling and rewarding driving character, founded on its Toyota New Global Architecture-based (TNGA) platform. The availability of Toyota's latest-generation hybrid powertrain has also proved highly popular with customers, commanding the majority of European sales (more than 75 per cent).

The production model has provided the inspiration for Toyota designers to explore the possibilities for a higher powered hybrid version, with an even more impactful and emotional styling treatment. The result is the new Toyota C-HR Hy-Power Concept, which made its world debut at the 2017 Frankfurt motor show, created by a team at ED2, Toyota's European design studio in the South of France.


Toyota's intention has been to develop the styling of the Toyota C-HR to produce a very desirable vehicle that connects even more strongly with customers who have highly individual tastes and lifestyles, emphasising its stylishness and fun-to-drive character. Further exploring the "diamond" architectural theme of the production model, the new concept displays a high quality execution and attention to detail throughout. The design also reflects the presence of a more powerful hybrid powertrain, heralding a future expansion of Toyota's hybrid programme.

Without releasing any technical specifications, they claim the engine combo has more power, especially the electric part. Kind of makes sense, the Prius powertrain hasn't changed in terms of output for nearly 10 years...
