World of Toyota Motor Show- The Past, The Present and The Future (Toyota FCV-R and Lexus LF-LC)

Toyota Motor Philippines held the biggest and exclusive week-long motor show at the World Trade Center last August 10-18, 2013. The event highlighted various Toyota vehicles that have shaped the local automotive industry for more than 40 years. Aside from the classics, Toyota also showcased 2 concept cars that gave people a glimpse of the brand's future designs and technology. 

Since D was more of the car enthusiast than me, he was more than excited to take part on this wonderful event.

These were just some of the cars showcased during the event:

The event's highlight were these 2 modern and futuristic cars- Toyota FCV-R and Lexus LF-LC 

Toyota FCV-R

Toyota's Fuel-Cell Vehicle Reality and Revolution (FCV-R) is a mid-size family FCV that runs on hydrogen and emits water vapor only. The concept model is highly practical and will be marking its next step towards mass production sometime in 2015. Overall, the FCV-R combines breakthrough innovation with ergonomic practicality and futuristic styling.

Mirroring Toyota’s new family design, both the front and rear styling exposes a “W” theme, signifying the fuel cell cooling system. 

On the other hand, Lexus showcased its Future-Luxury Coupe (LF-LC) that was first revealed in Detroit, Michigan at the North American International Auto Show.

The Lexus LF-LC shows off the brand's signature spindle-shaped grille supported by a front-engine and rear-wheel drive drivetrain layout. Furthermore, the vehicle’s interior displays the latest advanced technology with natural forms and shapes to create a driver-focused synergy of form and function. All these are powered by the latest Advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive that delivers driving performance and fuel efficiency. 

Since the event's theme is all about the past, the present and the future of Toyota, they also showcased classic Toyota cars from the 1960s, 70s, and 80s. 

The motor show was held in commemoration of Toyota's 25 years of providing quality vehicles and unparalleled service to its customers. Being one of the automotive industry leaders for more than two decades, we are sure that Toyota will continue to come up with innovations for their future models.
