Big shoutout to Vid6639 for shooting these pictures & his coverage of the Auto Expo. Thanks for sharing, man!

Toyota's eye candy - Le Mans prototype - Hybrid TS040:

It has got a carbon fibre composite body:

3.7L V8 petrol engine. It produces over 986 BHP (petrol + hybrid):

Notice the carbon fibre weaves on the body, inside the headlamps, everywhere:

Toyota Mirai Hydrogen fuel cell car:
Toyota @ Auto Expo 2016-c-1.jpg

The basic premise of the Toyota Mirai is simple. Have a tank filled with hydrogen (H), take oxygen (O2) from the atmosphere and do some advanced chemistry between the two resulting in just 3 end products - electricity, heat and water:
Toyota @ Auto Expo 2016-c-3.jpg

The Mirai looks different...that's an understatement. Its design remains a hit or a miss:
Toyota @ Auto Expo 2016-c-4.jpg
Toyota @ Auto Expo 2016-c-5.jpg
Toyota @ Auto Expo 2016-c-6.jpg

Check out bblost's lovely report on the Mirai here (Japan Report: Toyota Mirai Hydrogen Fuel Cell Car, and Toyota's Safety Technology):
Toyota @ Auto Expo 2016-c-7.jpg

The Camry Hybrid also stands amidst its hybrid stable mates:

Toyota had an hybrid simulator too. Too bad it wasn't functional at the time Vid6639 covered the stall:

The Japanese manufacturer has a safety corner too.

This machine simulates the importance of driving aids - traction control, ESP etc.
Toyota @ Auto Expo 2016-d-8.jpg

Users get to drive with the driving aids on first and then without. Its good to see manufacturers spreading awareness on safety features:

This is a Liva simulator. You're actually using the controls of this Liva and virtually driving (the screen ahead shows you the road):
Toyota @ Auto Expo 2016-d-3.jpg
Toyota @ Auto Expo 2016-d-4.jpg

Toyota shows a video of the Latin & Global NCAP crash test where the Liva scored 4 stars:

Some other videos showing the other services offered by Toyota:

Any news about Toyota Vios ? I read somewhere Toyota will display the Vios sedan to be launched in India in 2017. Or may be they will unveil it in coming days ?

Any indication of reintroducing their once hot selling sports models like MR2, Celica?

Were Vios, Rush and RAV 4 on display? I was of the opinion that Toyota may think of bringing them to India in 2016/2017 though there are news that next gen Vios will be launched in India in 2018.

Very disappointed with the Toyota pavilion.
Was eagerly waiting for a preview of the Vios but the company has decided against showcasing that.

Its a lame effort and with the Crysta launch, Innova may touch touch Endy territory.

What happened to the replacement of Etios Evils Twins? Or Toyota is too happy selling them to the taxi market? I thought, they were to be replaced this year?

What a sad pavilion. The least Toyota could have done is displayed car which they intend to launch in near future. Iam not sure how difficult it was to display the new fortuner.

Why display car which you are never going to launch here anyways.

All show no go.

Another half-hearted attempt by a manufacturer. I believe this is an insight into their seriousness for the market. Toyota with the Innova has kind of taken the market for granted and hence no display of Vios, Fortuner or any other planned launch.

Or are they gonna surprise us??? No way!!!
