Toyota's Hydrogen Powered FCV Concept Offers a Futuristic Glimpse at 2015 Production Model
NOVEMBER 05, 2013
Toyota has us really confused with its FCV concepts and the hydrogen fuel-cell powered production car it will lead to with a launch "around 2015". On one hand, last week, it showed prototypes of a camouflaged FCV prototype that strongly resembled the Toyota Sai / Lexus HS250h twins, and now, it has unveiled a new concept that looks far more conceptual than the original FCV-R study from 2011…
The new FCV Concept that will be displayed at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show later this month, has a different and seemingly less production ready design than the previous study – it even lacks exterior mirrors, replacing them with cameras and screens.
It has also grown in dimension with the new FCV measuring 4,870mm long (+35mm), 1,810mm wide (+20mm) and 1,535mm high (+25mm), while the wheelbase is 2,780mm or 80mm longer than that of the 2011 FCV.
