Toyota Boshoku Corporation (Head Office: Kariya City, Aichi Prefecture, Japan; President: Takeshi Numa) has developed seats, unit parts and other parts adopted to Toyota Motor Corporation’s new Land Cruiser that went on sale last month.
Toyota Boshoku Corporation has developed third-row seats for 7-seater Land Cruiser models that can be retracted into the floor. By folding the second-row seat and retracting the third-row seat into the floor, this seat arrange can create a fully flat luggage space that allows carrying a variety of luggage, without bothering by size or length. This improves the Land Cruiser’s convenience and ease of use. In addition, the ZX gasoline, GR Sport gasoline, and VX grades (7-seater grades) third-row seats allows the third-row seat to be retracted and returned automatically by push of a switch.
Also, the seatback boards of the front seats and third-row seats are made of a base material consisting of kenaf fiber and oil-based polypropylene. They are approximately 20% lighter than the polypropylene base material used previously. The use of kenaf and lightweight parts reduces the CO2 output and contributes toward achieving carbon neutrality of vehicles.
