With a range of more than 1,000 kilometres on a tank of fuel, Toyota says the plug-in hybrid model could be driven from Vancouver to Calgary, or Toronto to Quebec City. The Prius Prime has a range of 40 kilometres on electric power alone when fully charged. Before rebates in various jurisdictions, the Prius Prime starts at $32,990.

Introducing the Future Toyota Adventure Concept (FT-AC), an outdoor-inspired concept vehicle that’s ready to fuel your active lifestyle. With plenty of ground clearance, and all-terrain tires filling its large overfender flares, FT-AC’s aggressive stance gives it an undeniable rugged appeal.

Envisioned in three sizes, the e-Palette concept features an open-control interface, with Toyota’s Guardian technology acting as the safety net to keep the vehicle operating as it should. Toyota’s MSPF provides a full suite of services to support fleet management needs, such as leasing and insurance handling, and big-data acquisition.

Toyota envisions lengths varying from four meters to seven, with the display vehicle at CES measuring 4,800 mm long by 2,000 mm wide, with a height of 2,250 mm.

The open interior layout allows businesses to outfit the interior according to their needs, whether that’s parcel delivery, food-delivery or ride sharing, as well as the flexibility to seamlessly change, if the company has various business needs or if the vehicle is shared with other users.

The concept is expected to begin testing in various world markets as early as 2020, starting with that year’s Olympic and Paralympic Games in Tokyo.
