Toyota is claiming a European first by including a Gentex Rear Camera Display (RDC) mirror in its new Toyota Corolla Verso multi-purpose vehicle. The mirror has a built-in LCD screen that automatically displays a rear-camera view when the vehicle is shifted into reverse and then disappears when any other gear is selected.

Gentex mirror technology has been slowly gaining favor with car manufacturers around the world, with Mazda first to introduce it in the United States, and Ford recently announcing the technology would be a standard inclusion in the 2010 Fusion, Mustang and Mercury Milan.

Nonetheless, Enoch Jen, Gentex Senior Vice President, can justifiably claim that "this is the first vehicle built in Europe and designed specifically for the European market to incorporate our auto-dimming RCD Mirrors".
