Toyota has unveiled the Toyota C-HR Hy-Power hybrid concept at the Frankfurt Motor Show, which is a preview of a new lineup of “high-performance” hybrid models that Toyota is planning. Based on the C-HR, the concept gets a slightly more aggressive exterior with an orange and silver theme, but the bigger news is what’s under the hood.
As a preview of Toyota’s new lineup of “performance hybrids,” the Toyota C-HR Hy-Power concept is powered by a new hybrid powertrain that has more power than the current 120 horsepower hybrid system in the production model. Toyota hasn’t announced exactly how much more power.
On the outside the concept is painted in Dark Carbon silver paint with a Burning Orange finish on the front pillars, the door mirror housings and an accent bar within the headlamp units. The color is also used as a highlight within the black diamond mesh pattern of the lower grille. The roof also features a unique, “diamond-cut” film that covers the entire surface in a faceted, crystalline pattern.
The interior continues the orange theme with black leather seats with orange headrests and bolsters. Burning Orange yarn has been used to create a unique, asymmetrical quilting pattern of multiple diamond shapes across the seat backs and cushions.
Toyota will announce more details about the more powerful C-HR hybrid early next year.
