Toyota - "Yellow SneaCar" showed up at the New Vitz event in Shibuya

New Vitz Flashmob!
The engine of the Toyota Vitz (known as the Yaris in North America) was tweaked and it has higher thermal efficiency and lower fuel consumption. To promote the new Vitz to the public, a PR event took place in Shibuya, Tokyo.

The event started with 5 dancers, however it turned out to be flash mob dancing involving people watching the event as well as security guards. It was planned because the theme of the new Vitz is "Happy Footwork" that unwillingly starts dancing and singing.

The Vitz color was Luminous Yellow, which is one of the 8 new colors added under the theme of "Lively", and the huge sneaker-shaped car "Yellow SneaCar" made a big PR splash for Toyota.

In this demonstration, when a car is left in the drop-off area of a parking lot, it receives information about which spaces are available, then drives itself to an empty space and parks. This system can automatically park multiple cars efficiently.
