Car Brief: Toyota F3R Concept

don’t need to be boring. At that’s what Toyota to convey with the F3R Concept that debuted at the 2006 American International Auto in Detroit, what the company is “a sporty extension of a concept all but in today’s automotive world.”

minivans are nothing new. sells one today called the Dodge, Ford, and Pontiac all sold minivans with themes – anyone recall the Montana Thunder with its hood scoops? Still, no denying that the minivan has stagnated at about half a sales per year, mainly younger consumers won’t be dead in them.

Such is youthful American The reality, as those who’ve the leap have discovered, is no vehicle for sale today is practical for daily living – when you’ve got kids, and a home to maintain. To prove a people-mover can be appealing, Toyota’s design studio, Calty Research Inc. was given a but clear directive to create a concept car that is roomy, stylish, and environmentally responsible. The is the Toyota F3R Concept.

To appeal to buyers, designers decided to “a relaxed lounge environment” for the F3R Concept’s interior because the market uses a car as an entertainment Therefore, the F3R gets eight seats with metal-edged and asymmetrical backs.

We find the Toyota F3R Concept the first real breakthrough in design since that Dodge Caravan rolled off the line in 1983 (though the plastic GM future-mobiles of the early at least looked innovative). one problem, though. A big selling of a minivan is the sliding doors on sides of the car. It seems Toyota may have overlooked in favor of form, at least on one point.
