Driver-Oriented Interior For Toyota FT-HS Concept

Toyota’s FT-HS concept sports car has a driver-oriented interior featuring the same aggressive style as the exterior.

Featuring a two-plus-two layout, the flowing surfaces and sharp edges of the FT-HS exude sleekness, technology and performance.

Toyota describes the interior design as “subtractive mass” – a minimalist style that is not only lightweight, but also looks lightweight.

The resulting lean, skeletal look emanates from an exposed beam that runs the width of the car and from the use of high-tech materials such as carbon fibre and titanium.

All important functions and details are presented almost exclusively to the driver.

An integrated instrument panel surrounds the driver, creating an enclosed pod effect.

The “delta-wing” driver’s pod integrates many useful functions into a lightweight structural unit.

A telescoping hub-less steering wheel incorporates semi-automatic paddle shifters.

The system allows the main dials to be shifted forward in order to shorten the driver’s focus-time.

Touch-trace sensors, which surround the driver, act as tactile guides for finger controls when travelling at high speeds.

Seating is optimised for a lightweight appearance and function, leaving only the important contact points while cutting away unnecessary bulk and weight.

The seating accommodates four, converting to a two-seater when the roof retracts.

The passenger-seat area is open with a simple exposed airbag on the cross-car beam.

Armrests flow seamlessly into the door and surrounding interior.
