Tokyo 2009: 2010 Sai hybrid looks suspiciously

2010 Toyota Sai — above for high-res image

Toyota has rolled out its new Sai hybrid at the Tokyo Motor Show. and if it familiar, that’s because probably seen something similar wearing Lexus and badges.

The overall aesthetic of the Sai is similar to that of its premium but it features different light front and rear, along bespoke fascias on both as well as a unique hood and lid.

The Nippon-market dedicated model utilizes the same gasoline engine tied to latest Hybrid Synergy system, and the luxury compact things like plant-derived and a radar-based pre-crash safety

According to Toyota, Sai means and coloration depending on how it is written in and the name is meant to combine talent and multi-color sophistication.

The automaker expects 36,000 to be wooed by the front-driver’s colorful each year. No word yet on the sedan will cross the as a more affordable Toyota-badged of the HS250h. Check out our high-res below and the official press after the jump.

TMC Unveils Luxury Hybrid

Tokyo — TOYOTA CORPORATION (TMC) announces the today in Japan of the compact sedan Sai, which is to go on sale in Japan on December 7.

The Sai is on a concept derived from the word sai-which means when written as sai and coloration written as sai-as a hybrid-only combining advanced talent and sophistication.

The Sai, designed extensive consideration for the environment, a gasoline-electric hybrid system a 2.4-liter engine for outstanding efficiency and use of Ecological Plastic from plant-derived materials) for 60% of the interior surface area. Its efficient package achieves an balance between maneuverability, refined sedan styling and performance. Furthermore, in addition to advanced features for high-level performance, such as a millimeter-wave-radar Safety system, the Sai, its other attributes, provides performance and riding comfort a luxury vehicle, altogether it a compact luxury vehicle for a new era brings together talent and to enrich customers’ lifestyles.

Monthly sales target for 3,000 units
