After decades of its existence, Toyota Australia has finally revealed the world’s first convertible Hiace to be sold exclusively Down Under in a limited run of just 2,019 units.
“The ground-breaking shape of the new Hiace, with its semi-bonnet and stiffer frame, lends itself perfectly to a convertible design while maintaining rigorous safety standards,” said Toyota Australia, Head of Public Affairs, Brodie Bott.
Toyota Australia also revealed an optional extra “built-in pie oven” for the convertible Hiace, called ‘PieAce’, disguised neatly behind the rear tailgate.
“It works a lot like a slow cooker. All you do is pop an uncooked pie or sausage roll in the PieAce, set it to the desired temperature using the buttons on the steering wheel, and away you go.”
“An alarm on the dash lets the driver know when the pie is cooked and ready to eat. When it’s safe to do so, the driver can bring the Hiace to a complete stop to open up the rear tailgate to access the retractable PieAce,” said Bott.
In conjunction with the exciting news, the company would also like to wish everyone, “Happy April Fool’s Day“.
