At the 2012 Beijing Motor Show, Toyota had a total booth space of 3200 metres square where they exhibited a total of 38 production and concept vehicles including three world premieres. Toyota Motor Corporation aims to continue producing better cars; ranging from environment friendly vehicles to specially equipped ones to meet the needs of a broad range of vehicle users in China.

During a press conference at the exhibition, Toyota’s president, Akio Toyoda stated that the company would like to put smiles on the faces of Toyota’s Chinese customers with hybrid technology and he wants the people of China to be able to experience the beauty of hybrid technology through a hybrid car born in China.

The three cars that made their world premiere are the Yundong Shuangqing China-only hybrid concept and the compact sized Dear Qin hatchback and sedan concepts. I’ll start with the two Dear Qin concepts first.

Details on the Dear Qin hatchback and sedan concepts are a little scarce currently. But they do suggest at something interesting that is coming to every market where Toyota sells their cars. The two Dear Qin conceptual cars are a part of Toyota’s Global Strategic concepts which features a design that aims to attract more people to the user base. There were reports stating that Toyota is working on a new, global front wheel drive model that is believed to be launched in either 2013 or 2014. Below is a promotional video of the two Dear Qin concepts.

Next up is the Toyota Yundong Shuangqing hybrid concept (pictured above) which is specific for the China market. As mentioned above, the company wants car buyers in the country to experience the beauty of hybrid technology through a hybrid car born in China. As for me, I am not sure what the deal with the name is.

It’s not like the game of Golf is particularly big in Germany but the name garner large volume of sales. Anyway, the car will be equipped with a hybrid system primarily developed at the Toyota Motor Engineering and Manufacturing (China) Co. Ltd. R&D Centre in Changsu, China.
