Toyota NS4 concept car (2012) first official pictures

Published: 21 December 2011

Toyota regularly shows hybrid concept cars at the Detroit auto show – and the 2012 NAIAS is no different. Problem is, we don't yet know much about their planned debut.

Called the NS4, all we can see so far is this rather ludicrously cropped shot of the headlamp. We nearly didn't bother publishing this at all, but figured you'd rather see a snippet of the Toyota NS4 rather than nothing.

The brief statement issued today says: 'Toyota Motor Sales USA Inc will debut NS4, an advanced plug-in hybrid concept vehicle, at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.

'The reveal will feature the world premiere of the concept vehicle as well as the North American debut of the Prius C hybrid during Toyota's news conference on Tuesday 10 January at 8.45am in the Riverview Ballroom at Cobo Center.'
