Toyota Crown sedan VI

Tokyo: Toyota Motor has announced a completely redesigned of the Crown Royal Saloon and Athlete series. The company has added a hybrid model to the line-up.

The remodelled Crown is the car to build on Toyota’s new cost-cutting called V I, or Value Innovation. is hopeful that value will manifest savings of at $2.8 billion a year.

The Saloon and Athlete series gone on sale in Japan on 18 and the Crown Hybrid will be in Japan on 6 May.

The 13th-generation unveiled today retains the of poise and reliability that the Crown series, which has a reputation as the leader among vehicles in Japan over the than half a century its debut in 1955.

At the same the new Crown adopts advanced to create luxury sedans provide performance at the world’s levels.

The Value Innovation program seeks to bunch car components together in more and lower cost, modules and The program also has implications for the final price, features, and of parts suppliers.

Addressing a conference, President Katsuaki said, We were able to the car’s cost performance the VI efforts.

Toyota’s cost capability allows it to maintain its on research and development, and makes it one of the most profitable, innovative, and carmaker amid rising raw costs.

As an example, Watanabe the new Crown combined electronic units (ECUs), as the mini-computers manage onboard systems power steering to windshield are known as, with components actuators. This created a module and drove down which in turn allowed to offer advanced vehicle and safety systems across the as a standard feature. He added integrating wire harnesses and allowed engineers to drastically the designs of the keyless entry and some body parts, further lowered production

While the hybrid version outstanding cruising and environmental all three series benefit the excellent vehicle stability and safety performance offered by (Vehicle Dynamics Integrated

Other advanced features a Pre-crash Safety System can determine — as a world’s — whether the driver’s are properly open. Such together with an integrated system, result in one of the world’s levels of driver support.

The system also uses the map to inform the driver of upcoming signs and issue a warning if the is late in decelerating. The world’s navigation system-linked brake function assists the driver in the of emergency braking, helping vehicle speed.

The Intelligent Assist system helps the during parallel parking or into a parking space, ultrasonic sensors installed on the of the vehicle to detect the parking The system has a function that the driver when to turn the wheel and where to start up.

were made to improve efficiency to reduce CO2 emissions. The Hybrid achieves a fuel of 14.0 kilometres to a litre, to the newly introduced JC08 cycle outlined by the Japanese of Land, Infrastructure and Transport and it is one of the first vehicles to meet the new Japanese fuel efficiency The vehicle also achieves the of 166g/km of CO2 emissions. (Under the 10-15 test cycle, the efficiency is 15.8 kilometres per surpassing the existing 2010 efficiency standards by 20 per cent, CO2 emissions just 147g/km.)

The Royal Saloon and the Crown both achieve fuel of 12.0 kilometres per litre, to the 10-15 test cycle2, CO2 emissions of 193g/km, which the level called for by the 2010 by 10 per cent.

Both NOx (nitrogen and NMHC (non-methane hydrocarbons) been reduced so that all now have emissions levels 75 per below the 2005 standards MLIT’s Approval System for Vehicles.

Toyota employed Eco-VAS Assessment System), its original environmental impact assessment to efficiently reduce overall impact throughout the vehicle’s from production and use to disposal. targets were set in the initial development stage and a life assessment carried out to help the achieve a reduction of CO2 and air contaminants.

The adopted Eco Zone Indicator the degree to which the accelerator is and the range for fuel-efficient driving. with the Eco Driving Indicator lights up to indicate fuel-efficient it helps raise the driver’s of environmentally considerate driving.

Specially equipped vehicles factory-installed features for disabled
