Toyota's Washington Auto Show Exhibit Focuses On Causes Including Safety, Environment

WASHINGTON, Jan. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc.'s (TMS) 30,112 square-foot exhibit at this year's Washington Auto Show (WAS), nearly a quarter larger than last year's, will be a blend of new products bound for dealerships and concept vehicles that could pave the way for new production vehicles and promising technologies.

Among the headliners at the exhibit is a pair of vehicles: the new Avalon, which is designed, developed and manufactured in the U.S. with elegant and athletic styling hinting at the shape of Toyotas to come, and the new RAV4, a reinvention of the world's original crossover sport utility vehicle.

The 2013 RAV4 features bold and dynamic styling with improved aerodynamics, and a spacious, upgraded interior. The vehicle also boasts new technology and safety features along with the versatility and functionality consumers demand. Toyota's all-new flagship sedan, the 2013 Toyota Avalon, combines more emotional styling, improved dynamic performance and much greater capability. The Avalon is the first generation to be offered with a Hybrid Synergy Drive System that can deliver an EPA-rated 40-mpg combined city/highway driving.

Test drives of both the RAV4 and the Avalon, along with the 2013 model year Prius Plug-in, will be open to WAS attendees from Friday, Feb. 1, through Sunday, Feb. 10. Scion will also offer a Ride and Drive, featuring the 2013 model year FR-S, iQ and tC Coupe.

In conjunction with the Ride and Drives, Toyota will partner with three charities – American Red Cross, AMVETS and National Park Foundation – in the "Drive for a Cause" campaign.  Any WAS attendee participating in a test drive can choose one of these charities, to which Toyota will make a contribution on their behalf.

In addition to these new vehicles, the FT-Bh TMC futuristic hybrid concept, which brings fuel efficiency to a new level with a focus on maximum affordability, will be featured. The FT-Bh concept is an ultra-light, sub-1800-pound, full hybrid vehicle designed to lower fuel consumption and minimize emissions for an affordable, subcompact family car.
