Or maybe not.
Either way, Toyota ’s Aqua C Air Roadster Concept looks the part of a fun car to drive, even if the reported performance numbers aren’t exactly what you’d call impressive.
As part of the Japanese automaker’s fleet that will be heading to the Tokyo Motor Show , the Aqua C Air Roadster Concept is a hybrid roadster that could very well be a preview of what a future hybrid roadster from Toyota may look like.
Seeing as the concept has been slotted as a B-segment vehicle, the Aqua C Air Roadster Concept only measures 3,990 mm (157 inches) long, 1,690 mm (66.5 inches) wide and 1,440 mm (56.7 inches) tall, with a wheelbase of 2,550 mm (100.4 inches). Doesn’t exactly inspire size and strength, does it?
Nevertheless, the roadster concept is also powered by a sophisticated powertrain that includes a 1.5-liter Atkinson-cycle engine and an electric motor. Taken together, the engine can produce up to 100 horsepower, while netting a fuel efficiency rating of 83.2 mpg.
