Interiors look like that of a luxury private jet. And in case the view through the windows is not good enough the passenger can just roll back the seat and look at the sky from the panorama sun roof.
This car does not just offer luxury, but excellent and clean power from the 5 litre hybrid engine. But the features are not just limited to luxury. The Electronic All Wheel Drive (AWD) this car will be an excellent drive even on tricky terrains. As far as quality of Toyota engines, some people even call them bulletproof in context of quality and reliability.
Being a hybrid, this car will meet all the emission standards set by the Government of India. The self charging technology facilitates regenerative braking allowing storage of energy that is generated from braking. This energy is used for acceleration either by electric motor only or with assistance by fuel engine. The hybrid engines charge the electric batteries while in function. These cars do not need an external source of energy for charging.
