Teaser for Toyota Hybrid-R Concept before its debut at Frankfurt

14 Aug

Toyota will showcase an exciting new concept for road and track at this year’s Frankfurt Motor Show, featuring Toyota Hybrid System-Racing (THS-R) technology.

THS-R technology has been used in the TS030, Toyota’s FIA World Endurance Championship car, .

Hybrid-R is based on a current Toyota production model and is equipped with a powertrain that features similar technology to that used by Toyota Racing’s TS030 Hybrid race car in the FIA World Endurance Championship car, which achieved second place at this year’s Le Mans 24 hours.
