The 2011 Toyota GRMN Sports Hybrid II Concept is an updated version of a petrol-electric sports concept shown at Tokyo Auto Salon in 2010. The vehicle features advanced styling and an improved sports-hybrid AWD system with the main power unit (petrol engine, rear-wheel drive motors and transmission) mid-mounted in conjunction with a front-wheel drive motor. Positioned this way it improves maneuverability, increases driving enjoyment and provides enhanced stability.

Toyota launched the world's first mass-produced petrol-electric vehicle, the Prius, in 1997, and has long conducted active research on applying hybrid technologies to racing and sports cars. The 2011 GRMN Sports Hybrid II Concept is the next step in the evolution of these efforts.

GRMN is an acronym for "GAZOO Racing tuned by MN". GAZOO Racing is a team that created a vehicle-development and motor-sports support program, the GAZOO.com customer-participation portal site launched in 1998, "GAZOO mura" driving events and the "Drive Kingdom" large-scale test-drive events for the general public. MN stands for "Meister of Nürburgring", referring to Hiromu Naruse (1944-2010), a TMC test driver and chief of the GAZOO Racing team.
