Calty Design Research, a subsidiary of Toyota Motor Corporation, provides innovative design solutions for Toyota, Lexus and Scion vehicles
Our primary goal is to research market trends and create innovative vehicle designs that reflect US tastes as well as other global markets. We participate in a variety of project activities, including experimental concepts, advanced, competition and production design for the Toyota, Lexus and Scion brands. These design solutions are often shared and developed in collaboration with other Toyota design, planning, engineering and manufacturing groups in Japan and the US.
We operate in two U.S. locations. Our Newport Beach, CA design studio primarily develops advanced concept design while our Ann Arbor, MI studio supports North American production design development.
