As we’re still waiting for Toyota to unveil its FCV next month at the Tokyo Motor Show, here is another test drive with the camouflaged hydrogen-powered sedan.

An it’s normal to be easy to drive, with its 130 equivalent horsepower and torque delivered instantly added to the continuous delivery uninterrupted by any gear change.

“Engine braking” is simulated too, by the use of regenerative braking systems that transform braking force into electricity and store it in batteries located under the front seats, while the main juice is assured by the hydrogen stored under the rear seats, which is oxidized in an electricity-generating process.
