Toyota Launches LS And Mirai Equipped With “Advanced Drive” That Enables Drivers And Cars To Drive Together In Japan


Achieving human-centric driving assist in accordance
with Toyota’s ultimate goal of reducing fatalities from
traffic accidents

Toyota City, Japan, Apr 8, 2021 –
(JCN Newswire) – Toyota Motor Corporation (Toyota) seeks, as
a mobility company, to enrich people’s lives through
mobility. As a part of this effort, Toyota has positioned
safety as a top-priority issue in accordance with its
ultimate goal of reducing fatalities from traffic accidents
to zero and is developing safety and automated driving
technologies to offer unrestricted mobility to all. Toyota
will review once again what true safety is for customers and
what customers believe is true convenience and will link the
results of its inquiries to people’s happiness.

The
approach for achieving this is the Mobility Teammate
Concept–an automated driving concept unique to Toyota that
seeks to enhance communication between drivers and cars,
enable them to reach out to each other for mutual assist,
and enable coordinated driving similar to that by close
friends. Rather than cars taking over driving from people
and taking their place, drivers and cars act as partners to
protect one another so that drivers can enjoy the experience
of driving while deferring to automated driving at times,
achieving truly safe, secure and unrestricted
mobility.

The new LS and the new Mirai lineups include
grades equipped with Advanced Drive, a new function of
Toyota/Lexus Teammate, the state-of-the-art driving assist
technology developed based on this concept. The new LS was
launched in Japan on April 8, 2021 and the new Mirai will be
launched in Japan on April 12, 2021.(1) With the aim of
ensuring that drivers remain the focus even as technologies
advance, the driver and car confirm each other’s status by
engaging in a dialogue, leading to safe driving and
comfortable mobility.

(1) The new LS and the new Mirai
to be launched are equipped with Advanced Park, an advanced
parking assistance system that seamlessly achieves safe and
secure parking.
