Toyota [6]‘s goal with the NS4 was to create a simple and intuitive interior that brought the driver information more quickly than ever. Unique features include adaptive headlights that aim away from pedestrians and oncoming vehicles to reduce glare while offering visibility near high-beam illumination as well as a precollision crash prevention system that uses radar and cameras to help avoid a crash day or night. Finally, Toyota said that its goal is to make its next-generation hybrids [7] lighter, with better fuel economy, range, charging time, and performance, so we’re looking forward to the details as this car is developed into a production model over the next few years.
