Along with the other two concepts that will make their debut at the upcoming 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, the GC-PHEV and the XR-PHEV, the Concept AR will demonstrate the company’s new design direction and its ‘@earth’ philosophy.
The Concept AR (Active Runabout) is powered by a conventional internal combusiont engine, a compact 1.1 liter gasoline turboachraged unit equipped with direct injection.
The wedge-shaped exterior is characterized by a surface treatment that uses clean surfaces and several linear contours, influenced by the product design world.
The overall look conveys a sense of solidity and functionality and can be considered as a less extreme variant of the Concept XR-PHEV’s design.
The distinctive interior features 4+2 individual seats, which can be arranged in different configurations thanks to the flat floor surface and the sliding center console.
