Every year, Toyota strives to update their model line-up with vehicles made up of all sorts of materials, in an effort to increase power while maintaining fuel efficiency. But have you ever imagined a Toyota made entirely of wood?
This wooden Toyota model, which is being referred to as the Setsuna concept, was built using multiple types of wood – including Japanese cedar for the exterior panels and Japanese birch for the vehicle’s frame.
In a press release, Toyota explained that they decided to use wood to make the vehicle because it is a material that is durable, although it changes over time. This reflects how a vehicle changes as it is passed through generations, Toyota added.
Of course, the Setsuna concept model isn’t for sale and will almost certainly not go into production, but the model is fascinating nonetheless. For more information on current models or to check out our enormous selection, visit us anytime at Capital Toyota.
