Toyota has revealed a pair of green technology concepts in Shanghai, previewing hybrid systems that could appear in future models.

Both cars are aimed at the Chinese market, with the FT-HT Yuejia debuting a six-seater hatch and the Yundong Shuangquing II previewing a new sedan model.

Toyota says that the hatch's "Yuejia" name means "happy family", while the sedan's name combines "movement upon clouds" with the term "dual support" - the latter a reference to its petrol-electric powertrain.

The sedan also represents an evolution of the NS4 concept that debuted early last year, adding bolder character lines and a new front-end design.

It is also clear that the sedan concept is a more 'market ready' take on the Furia concept revealed in January.

The hatch's design features a Lexus-like grille and a set of scissor doors, swinging up to reveal a pillarless entry space and three rows of individual seats, six in total.

Although styled as a hatch, Toyota describes the Yuejia as a sporting people-mover aimed at China's younger buyers.

Little has been revealed about the concepts' hybrid drivetrains, although Toyota has confirmed that a new system is being developed at its Changshu plant in China.
