Outline of exhibit

Carbon neutrality for protecting beloved cars

- Toward achieving carbon neutrality, Toyota is aiming to provide its customers with more choices by offering a full product lineup.

- In parallel, expecting that it will take time before all new vehicles are carbon neutral, simultaneously promoting the carbon neutralization of not only new vehicles but also of vehicles currently in customer use is essential for the future. Bringing back the long-time loved AE86 while retaining the original to the utmost, an AE86 converted into a hydrogen-engine vehicle is also on display in the form of the "AE86 H2 Concept", which is joined by an AE86 converted into a battery electric vehicle in the form of the "AE86 BEV Concept".

Making ever-better motorsports-bred cars

- TGR is putting into practice its approach of "Making ever-better motorsports-bred cars" by commercially providing cars that have been honed to win races.

- On display is the "GR Yaris Rally2 Concept", which was developed utilizing the knowledge gained by participating in the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC), along with the world premieres of the GR Yaris RZ "High-performance - Sebastien Ogier Edition Concept" and the GR Yaris RZ "High-performance - Kalle Rovanpera Edition Concept" as expressions of TGR's gratitude to all those who have supported the TOYOTA GAZOO Racing World Rally Team and of TGR's desire to bring even more excitement to the WRC.

Diverse lifestyles to be enjoyed with beloved cars

- In addition to exhibiting vehicles that have been customized under the supervision of professional racing drivers, also on display are new GR Parts developed by TGR utilizing feedback from motorsports, along with GR Heritage Parts scheduled for release starting in 2023 and produced to meet customers' desires to keep on driving their memory-filled beloved cars.

Toward achieving a carbon-neutral society, and based on its desire to deliver outdoor experiences that help people understand, enjoy, and protect nature, Lexus is promoting its "OVERTRAIL PROJECT", which offers the fun of vehicles that enhance outdoor lifestyles while coexisting with nature and provides various outdoor experiences.
