Auto Shanghai 2013: Toyota FT-HT Yuejia, Yundong Shuangqing II and Yaris China-spec

Article by Christian A., on April 22, 2013

Toyota presented many new models at the Auto Shanghai 2013 that include a local variant of the Yaris and a stylish six-seater compact crossover concept that are meant to attract younger consumers. At the 2012 Beijing motor show, Toyota unveiled concepts of the Yaris five-door hatchback and a saloon version named Vios.

But at the ongoing Shanghai show, Toyota launched their respective production versions. The hatchback takes on the Yaris name but these models are actually unique for the market in China. They’re also set to enter production in this country in the later part of 2013. Toyota may also start production of versions intended for other markets that are emerging.

It displayed the FT-HT Yuejia, a six-seater concept that’s equipped with a hybrid powertrain, a bold pillarless scissor door design and a simple, stylish cabin with three rows of two separate seats. It is a concept but Toyota has dropped hints that it will soon be made into a production car and that it will be offered in China exclusively.

Toyota’s stand also includes the Yungdong Shauangqing II, a model equipped with a new hybrid system that’s still in development as well as the EV concept, a squat compact crossover that has an all- electric drivetrain. Another new model on the Japanese automaker’s stand is the Danz, a Corolla-based electric saloon that’s a product of its FAW joint venture.
