The Char’s Auris II was exhibited in the Zeonic Toyota booth at the 2016 Tokyo Auto Salon on January 15.
Based on the all-new Auris that was remodeled in April 2015, the second-generation Char’s Auris was developed in collaboration with Mobile Suit Gundam. It was released last October with a limited run of 300 units.
It is mounted with a “fender shroud” that consists of a front spoiler and side/rear skirts to give it a “mobile suit” look. It has a new design featuring the ZT Commander’s Blade Antenna and the ZT Emblem, which are items that represent Char.
In addition to the exclusive ZT Cockpit Seat Code Char, the interior features original sound effects that play when you turn the ignition and the headlights on, making it feel like you have ridden a mobile suit. The Char’s navigation system has been upgraded as well. You can now enjoy voice navigation by Char or Lalah.
