Toyota launches cabin safety screen

Date: 15 July 2020   |   Author: Sean Keywood

Toyota has designed a cabin safety screen to help protect drivers and passengers from coronavirus transmission.

It is chiefly designed for taxi and private hire vehicle use, with a central opening flap for card or cash payments to be made, and has received approval from Transport for London.

Toyota says the screen can also be used for demonstration vehicles and accompanied test drives.

The screen, which is compatible with all recent Prius models and the full Corolla range, is made from clear polycarbonate material, involves no structural changes and does not damage the car's interior, being held in place by large tabs on its lower edge that are inserted in the front seatback pockets. 

Toyota says the screen has been tested to its own safety standards, including full deployment of airbags, and will also remain securely in place even when the vehicle is driven at high speed with the windows open.

The manufacturer says it is also awaiting TfL approval for a larger screen, suitable for the seven-seater Prius+ and the Rav4 SUV.

The screens are available to order through Toyota dealers, and can be installed by Toyota technicians in around 10 minutes.

Prices including VAT are £195 for the medium screen and £210 for the larger version.
