2011 Toyota FCV-R Concept Unveiled, Previews Fuel-Cell Production Car in 2015
Just last week, we heard the Big T wanted to bring a hydrogen-powered car for the masses by 2015, but now it’s all gotten real, with the unveiling of the Toyota FCV-R Concept, which will bow at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show at the end of the month.
This tear-droped sedan is a precursor to the next generation of fuel-cell vehicles powered by hydrogen. The bits that actually turn chemistry to electricity are located underneath, so the FCV-R still has room for four adults inside.
The 70 MPa (we’ve got to learn new unit measurer!) fuel tank is supposed to provide enough range for a journey of 700 km (435 miles). Expect more details to emerge as the car is fully detailed in Tokyo.
