Speaking about the concept, Simon Humphries, Toyota Design Senior General Manager, said :

“Our research into electric vehicles has been ongoing for more than 30 years, and we’ve come a long way.

After an initial phase of contact with electric vehicles, people will want zero-emission cars that speak about them and express their lifestyle. And the Compact Cruiser EV is a perfect example of that trend”.
