Toyota reveals Qashqai rival teaserMon, 15 Sep 2014 00:00:00 -0700
THE CROSSOVER bubble seems to be far from bursting, with Toyota revealing a sneak preview of the car it hopes can challenge the Nissan Qashqai.
The C-HR concept will be revealed fully for the first time at the Paris Motor Show at the beginning of October.
It is said to be fitted with a hybrid drivetrain and is likely to be based on the same chassis that underpins the Lexus NX compact SUV that has recently been launched to global media.
Also at the show will be Toyota’s Fuel Cell Sedan (FCS). The hydrogen-powered saloon will be making its first European bow, with sales to the public expected to start next year.
The FCS should complete hundreds of miles per tank of hydrogen, and can be refuelled in minutes like a conventional petrol-powered car. There are still few active hydrogen filling stations in the UK, though.
The Paris Motor Show opens to accredited media on October 2.
