Natural Gas Yaris

Sorry if it's been posted before...


SEMA 2008: Toyota Yaris Tailback runs on CNG

Toyota has brought a really, really green concept with it to the SEMA Show that's currently taking place in Las Vegas. That first bit of green comes courtesy of a compressed natural gas conversion that allows the driver to switch from gasoline to CNG for the otherwise stock four cylinder engine via a button. It wouldn't be a proper SEMA concept without a ton of modifications, and so the storage tank for the natural gas is housed in the rear and appears when the modified rear tailgate is opened with its automated electric motor.

Other greenery includes the can't-miss-it Sherwin Williams green paint with metallic flakes and bronze accents. Besides its CNG system, the Yaris Tailback gets custom suicide rear doors and a custom wide body kit, necessary to cover the ridiculously wide 19x9 front and 19x11 rear wheels. Inside is custom upholstery and an audio/video system provided by Pioneer.


2009 Yaris Five-Door Tailback

Based on the all-new 2009 Toyota Yaris Five-Door Liftback, the Yaris Five-Door Tailback concept highlights functionality and youthful styling.

Functionality is emphasized through the automated rear suicide doors and rear split tailgate. The exterior features aggressively styled modifications including a custom wide body kit that enhances the front and rear fascia with a center exit exhaust, grille, and widened front and rear fender flairs that incorporate new full length side rocker panels. The custom hood and newly designed rear spoiler add to the youthful styling of the Yaris 5 Door Tailgate concept. Accompanied by the redesigned body is a set of DPE wheels that feature eleven inch wide rear wheels with a five and a half inch lip and are covered in Nitto rubber, Rotora big brake kit, and Tanabe lowering springs. Custom mixed green with gold metal flake exterior paint, provided by Sherwin Williams, further enhances the sporty styling.

The Yaris 5 Door Tailback concept also features a compressed natural gas system (CNG). As an eco-friendly tuner, this bi-fuel concept offers the ability to switch from the vehicle's combustion engine to its CNG system with the push of a button. The CNG tank and custom casing is housed in the rear of the vehicle and is unveiled as the rear tailgate is powered open.

The vehicle's interior boosts an impressive Pioneer audio/visual system. While the lower monitor displays a variety of digital gauges, both monitors have the ability to display movies and videos which can be played through the integrated iPODŽ.

The trunk area houses a custom amplifier and subwoofer casing. Additionally, custom upholstery adorns the interior with gray suede and black leather front and rear seats with yellow stitching that adds to the youthful appeal of the concept. Gray suede is carried throughout the vehicle on the headliner, sun visors, and doors. The rear seats showcase 60:40 split functionality and reclines, slides and folds flat, a feature available on the Yaris 5-Door Liftback.
