NEW YORK, March 21, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — Toyota Motor North America, as a part of its 2016 New York International Auto Show presence, will bring Toyota Music in Motion to life during a live performance in the Toyota exhibit featuring the “Original Human Beat Box” and Hip Hop Legend Doug E. Fresh. Doug E. Fresh will perform several of his classic hits demonstrating his mastery of the craft of beat boxing providing note-perfect imitations of drum machines, effects and samples of hip-hop classics for the audience to experience.
The performance is inspired by the Toyota Avalon “Music in Motion” digital series featured last month on Interactive One’s digital platform. The digital content segments feature musical artists Doug E. Fresh and Jay Electronica, paired with visual artists to celebrate the spirit of the “rule breaker” who chooses the road less traveled and rarely shies away from a challenge – much like the Toyota Avalon – the car for successful “rule breakers.”
Toyota “Music in Motion” performance featuring Doug E. Fresh during the 2016 New York International Auto Show’s opening public day. Great photo and video opportunities. Media interviews with Doug E. Fresh are available from 1:00-2:00 p.m. RSVP required to Kevin Bynoe at 313-645-3132, or via email at: [email protected]
Doug E. Fresh, “The Original Human Beat Box,” was born in Barbados, but raised in Harlem, NY. He is known for his songs like “The Show/La Di, Da Di,” “All the Way to Heaven” and “Keep Risin’ to the Top.” His music has transcended through time and attracts consumers from all age groups. From the 80’s to 2016, Doug E. Fresh is still the best emcee of all time.
CONCEPT CARS REVEAL THE FUTURE AT THE 2016 NEW YORK AUTO SHOW
New York, NY – (March 18, 2016): Designed to amaze, excite and inspire, the concept cars at the 2016 New York International Automobile Show provide a glimpse into the future. Sometimes the focus is on a new design direction or a piece of new technological wizardry dreamed up by the designers to surprise and excite, but either way they never fail to grab the attention.
Here are some of this year’s most exciting new concept vehicles:
The Buick Avista concept is a 2+2 coupe grand tourer powered by a 400-horsepower twin-turbocharged V-6 driving the rear wheels and a driver-focused cockpit offering a comfortable, connected center of control. Like the exterior, the Avista’s interior is defined by flowing, uninterrupted lines with intense technical and surfaces details, in everything from 3D-printed door and seat trim to a future vision of Buick’s IntelliLink, with touchscreen controls on a widescreen instrument panel display.
Kia’s full-size SUV concept is an impressive three-row, seven-passenger, luxury SUV which features a modern and upright shape, muscular stance, and state-of-the-art technology to care for its occupants. Purely conceptual, the Kia Telluride is based on an existing platform and reveals the brand’s interest in potentially offering a premium SUV positioned above the current Sorento.
BUDD-e is a concept vehicle from Volkswagen that showcases the company’s new modular electric platform and offers a glimpse of next-generation connectivity and infotainment concepts. Completely and thoroughly networked, BUDD-e is a mobile interface which connects the vehicle with the world around it. BUDD-e is capable of seamlessly communicating with your Smart Home or office. Utilizing the latest in user interface innovation, touch and gesture control merge seamlessly and result in the removal of switches and buttons inside the cabin, individual displays that blend into large infotainment panels, and digital screens instead of analog mirrors.
KIA A1A Optima
The A1A Optima takes inspiration from this iconic Florida highway of the same name. The A1A Optima features a nod to America’s roadster fascination with its sliced top and shortened windshield. The back doors of the A1A Optima swing open on rear-mounted hinges, adding a touch of fun while complementing the roadster style. The exterior is inspired by the vibrant colors of South Beach and features a custom turquoise paint scheme. The concept is powered by a 245-horsepower turbocharged four-cylinder engine combined with a high-performance exhaust to give it a throaty voice.
NISSAN New Mobility
The Nissan New Mobility Concept is a 100-percent electric, two-seater compact vehicle with a range of 40 miles and top speed of 25 mph — perfect for driving in urban areas. The Concept is part of Nissan’s evaluation of the role electric vehicles will play as transportation options and needs continue to evolve.
KIA PacWest Adventure Sorento
The PacWest Adventure Sorento features a custom, multi-layer painting process utilizing pearls and candy effects that give the vehicle the look of an ever-changing chameleon. All chrome accents are painted matte black to provide some visual toughness to the Sorento’s sporty appearance. Inside, the PacWest Adventure Sorento features include custom painted dash- and door-panel inserts, a Daystar switch panel and rocker switches to activate the LED lights, and rugged floor mats.
