The Toyota Fun-Vii concept vehicle appeared in Canada for the first time yesterday, at the Canadian International Auto Show.

Toyota said the Fun-Vii is designed to attract a younger generation that is increasingly tech-savvy. The Toyota Fun-Vii (Vii stands for Vehicle, Interactive, Internet) is a concept vehicle that heralds a not-too-distant future when technology and automobiles will be seamlessly integrated.

The Fun-Vii boasts innovations such as car security based on biometric authentication, a breakthrough navigation system that intuitively projects needed information through augmented reality, and wireless re-charging.

In addition, the Fun-Vii is covered by impact-resistant body panels that transform the car exterior into one big display, and the same technology is also on the inside of the car, enabling the look of the interior to be fully adjustable as well.

“The wide range of exciting capabilities in the Fun-Vii demonstrates the impressive impact of Toyota innovation,” said Larry Hutchinson, managing director, Toyota Canada Inc. “This vehicle shows us just how far our imaginations can take us in redefining the future.”
