The FT-MV varies a bit from Toyota’s usual take on the minivan, with a more pronounced grille, more angular headlamps, bulging fender flares and a shorter hood. This appears to be a more refined version of the company’s previous minivan concept, the F3R, which was rolled out in Detroit in 2006. Toyota has released virtually no technical information about the FT-MV or its specific production plans.
But photos show such cabin touches as second-row seats with ottomans and video monitors for the rear passengers. Ambient mood lighting is used lavishly throughout the interior.
What this means to you: A little preview of a future minivan for Toyota’s home turf — but not likely something that will end up in your driveway.
Toyota will present at this year’s Tokyo Motor Shoe a new minivan concept called the Toyota FT-MV. The Toyota FT-MV aspires to be a first class, new generation mini van.
The Toyota FT-MV has a bold exterior design and includes a seconds row of seats equipped with fully automatic ottomans.
To create an elegant space the Toyota FT-MV uses a soft ambient light.
