Toyota CS&S Concept

The Toyota CS&S concept car, (standing for Compact Sports and Specialty) was originally shown at the 2003 Frankfurt Motor Show in Germany. It’s a 2 seat roadster powered by a 1.5 litre hybrid petrol electric set up taken directly from the Toyota Prius powers the rear wheels and a separate electric motor is connected to the front wheels.

Also unique to this concept is the seating arrangement with removable covers for the rear 2 occasional seats, where the car can be run as a 2 seater or if the rear canopies are removed from behind the front seats, a 2+2 seater. The concept also features a very much blue sky (ie not physically possible to actually put into production) ) that Toyota calls “Toyota Space Touch”, a multi-function information system that allows users to touch a series of floating holographic projections in order to control different functions of the car. The CS&S Concept is far removed both in styling terms and engineering complexity from current models like the Toyota Yaris and was never slated for production.
