What is the Toyota U2 Urban Utility concept?
Unless you’re a total Toyota buff, it’s unlikely that you’ll remember an interesting concept that we covered all the way back in October 2014 called the Toyota U2 Urban Utility concept. The concept has had new life breathed into it, and will make its global auto show debut in Toronto, at the Canadian International Auto Show, alongside a host of other great Toyota and Scion vehicles.

“From its retracting roof panels, to its uniquely configurable utility rail system, the U2 offers a concept vehicle that is only limited by the imagination. Our North American design team left no stone unturned in masterfully creating a concept vehicle that truly embodies the spirit of today’s Maker culture from the inside out,” stated the Vice President of Sales for Toyota Canada Inc., Cyril Dimitris.
In 2014 when we first got a look at the Urban Utility, not much was known about it. We’ve not yet learned much more, but we expect to get an in-depth look at the Canadian International Auto Show on February 11th in Toronto, when the U2 makes its official debut. Other vehicles present at the show will include the all-new Toyota Prius, all-new RAV4 and RAV4 Hybrid, the 2016 Toyota Tundra TRD Pro Series truck, a souped-up version of the Scion iM and many other new models.
Also on display will be the Toyota Safety Sense and Toyota FT1 virtual reality simulators, so if you’re able to attend the auto show at all we certainly recommend it. We’ll be sure to update you on the Toyota U2 Urban Utility concept vehicle on our Wheaton Toyota on the Trail blog sometime after the show.
