Toyota is set to launch a very odd model in its current lineup. It’s so odd that it boggles our minds just thinking about it. It is the Toyota Hiace convertible. The Hiace is a minibus that we normally call Hummer Bus in Nigeria. The convertible Hiace is called PieAce.
The soft-top convertible option will be available across the entire new Hiace van range, including the two-seat long-wheelbase (LWB) and super-long wheelbase (SLWB) configurations, as well as the five-seat LWB crew vans and 12-seat SLWB Commuter buses.

According to Brodie Bott, Head of Public Affairs, Toyota Australia in his words “The PieAce brings a whole new meaning to the term ‘meals on wheels.’ The oven is innovation at its finest. Our customers know we are always pushing the boundaries of what’s possible. The PieAce is taking the Hiace Convertible to the next level. It works a lot like a slow-cooker. All you do is pop an uncooked pie or sausage roll in the PieAce, set it to the desired temperature using the buttons on the steering wheel, and away you go. An alarm on the dash lets the driver know when the pie is cooked and ready to eat. When it’s safe to do so, the driver can also bring the Hiace to a complete stop to open up the tailgate to access the retractable PieAce.”
The PieAce made it’s debut only for the Australia market. Although, it is alleged that it won’t be produced for commercial sale.
