Paris, France, September 30, 2010—Toyota Motor Corporation (TMC) announces it unveiled today the compact "Verso-S" at the 2010 Paris Motor Show1, which is open to the press on September 30 and October 1 and to the public from October 2 to 17. Sales of the vehicle are planned to begin in Europe in February 2011.
The Verso-S seeks to unite class-leading1 levels of interior spaciousness and comfort with maximum utility in a compact body, which, at less than 4 m in length, enables easy maneuvering on city streets. A next-generation compact that meets a wide range of driver and passenger needs, the vehicle delivers basic functionality with a stylish form, impressive environmental performance and the kind of driving performance that results from testing and tempering on European roads.
At the show, Toyota is also showing the compact rear-wheel-drive "FT-86 Concept" sports car—a vehicle embodying both driving joy and ownership pleasure—and the compact-sized hybrid vehicle "FT-CH". Other display vehicles include the "Auris HSD", "Prius" and "Prius Plug-in Hybrid".
The Verso-S is scheduled to go on sale in Japan in late November under the name "Ractis".
