Toyota's premium FF sedan "Avalon"

The Japanese car market has been shrinking due to the high popularity of crossover SUVs, but the popularity of sedans in North America and China has remained firm. Therefore, Japanese manufacturers have launched overseas monopoly sedans for the market that has demand for sedans.

Toyota Avalon is one of them. Introduced in 1994, the first-generation Avalon, the FF large sedan, was more advanced than the American-built, grown, and spacious Camry, and is now selling its fifth-generation model.

The body contour has always adopted a 4-door sedan, which is quite ordinary. But when the car first appeared in front of the world, it gave the impression of being full of personality.

Since overseas media announced the "Avalon" concept car displayed by Toyota at the 1991 Tokyo Motor Show, it has caused heated discussions.

The eponymous concept car of the convertible model was unveiled in 1991


The Avalon concept car shown by Toyota at the 1991 Tokyo Motor Show was a four-seater convertible built by the Toyota Design Studio in North America.

Convertibles can close the roof in rainy weather to avoid getting wet, but the Avalon concept cannot be driven with the roof closed.

The reason for not being able to do so lies in the core functionality of the concept car.

The height of the car is only 95 cm! Extremely flat car


The Avalon concept car has a three-piece glass roof, and when the roof is closed, the body becomes very flat.

With the roof closed, the height of the car is only 95 centimeters, less than 1 meter, which is quite amazing.

However, this state cannot be achieved while the vehicle is running. The car will automatically change to this state after the person leaves the car after parking.

It is associated with today's Toyota

The Avalon concept car is frameless in design, pursuing "an unseen, dynamic and mysterious vehicle".

As mentioned at the beginning of the article, the Avalon that is being sold is a four-door sedan, which is nothing like the concept car.

The Avalon concept car is equipped with a small solar panel at the rear of the car to provide power for the switch on the roof. From this point of view, the Avalon concept car is still a little related to today's Toyota Prius and other cars.
