Beijing 2012: Toyota concept cars

Toyota hasn't released any technical details of the Yundong Shuangqing, but has confirmed that it previews a new hybrid model that will be sold only in China, from around 2015.

The Dear Qin is a concept car that will become a new budget-priced family car that will go on sale in various global markets in 2013. Toyota hasn't confirmed whether or not it will go on sale in the UK. If it does, it would be a rival for cars such as the forthcoming Seat Toledo and Skoda's new model based on the MissionL concept car.

Full details of Toyota's Beijing concept cars will be revealed at the show, which opens on April 23.
