The Japanese Toyota Esquire has broken down the barriers between functionality and luxury and created a minivan that has a luxurious interior made of top of the line materials, equipped with an efficient hybrid powertrain option. The Esquire can be seen on roads in Japan, typically used by businessmen, to comfortably tote around 7 or 8 passengers around town. Better yet, buyers have the option of having a classic all-leather interior, a must in a luxury vehicle. The exterior of the van resembles an SUV with a commanding and squared large chrome grille.
With the ability to achieve around 55 mpg with the hybrid, and a notable 34 mpg with the regular gas engine, the Esquire is a truly efficient van. Green Car Reports says “the Esquire will be sold at select Toyota dealers in Japan, with prices starting at around 2.6 million yen, or about $24,000 at current exchange rates.” Hopefully we can see this affordable and efficient minivan make its way to the States in the near future!
