Billed as a China-only vehicle, the concept is also a preview of a production model that would use a locally produced hybrid system exclusively for the Chinese market.

Alongside the Dear Qin hatch and sedan concept world debuts, Toyota also premiered the Yundong Shuangqing concept hybrid at the 2012 Beijing Motor Show.

Billed as a China-only vehicle, the concept is also a preview of a production model, just like the Dear Qin concepts, that would use a locally produced hybrid system exclusively for the Chinese market. The compact sedan's hybrid system is being developed primarily at the Toyota R&D Center in Changshu, China.

At a press conference during the show, TMC President Akio Toyoda said, "We would like to put smiles on the faces of our Chinese customers with hybrid technology. I want the people of China to be able to experience the beauty of hybrid technology through a hybrid car born in China."
