Toyota has announced plans to show the Aqua Air concept next week at the Tokyo Motor Show.

When Toyota revealed its Tokyo Motor Show lineup about a week ago they didn't say anything about this Aqua Air concept. It has come to our attention the roadster study will adopt the same hybrid powertrain as the Aqua G Sports, with an Atkinson-cycle 1.5-liter gasoline engine, an electric motor and a CVT gearbox. The vehicle will have a combined output of 100 HP (73.5 kW) and will have a fuel consumption of just 2.82 liters / 100 km (83.4 mpg US or 100 mpg UK).

We are dealing with a B-segment product as the Aqua Air concept is 157 inches (3990mm) long, 66.5 inches (1690mm) wide and 56.7 inches (1440mm) tall, while its wheelbase measures 100.4 inches (2550mm). It looks significantly more appealing than the aforementioned Aqua G Sports and could serve as a preview for a compact roadster.

Toyota will also show in Tokyo another Aqua concept called "Cross" but details are not available at this moment.
