Details are decidedly scarce – which, judging by the company in question, is surely by design – but Toyota has announced that it will be unveiling a new compact concept car at the 10th Auto Expo automobile show in New Delhi on January 5. And ... that's about all we have on the subject. See, we told you details were slim. Expect the machine, which is likely bound for production in emerging markets only, to slot below the Yaris in size and price.

We could speculate a bit by wondering out loud if the new Toyota will try to counter the success of the tiny Tata Nano, but we won't. In addition to the new compact car, Toyota promises to show off its i-REAL personal mobility device, the Fine-S fuel cell vehicle along with the less-interesting-to-ABG-readers Prado and Fortuner SUVs and the India-market Innova minivan. You won't find any more information, but if you'd like to read the press release anyway, you'll find it after the break.
