We’re in Switzerland for the
2014 Geneva Motor Show and we have an exciting glimpse into the not-so-far away future with the Toyota FCV Concept Seen for the first time in Europe the new fuel cell powered concept showcases what Toyota plans to commercialise in 2015 The upcoming sedan-type fuel cell vehicle is poised to become a pioneer
in hydrogen-powered vehicles So, what are hydrogen fuel cell vehicles? For Toyota, fuel cell is the closest technology to the ultimate
zero-emissions eco-car Emitting only water fuel cell vehicles have
the potential to solve a number of energy and emissions
concerns in the world today Toyota’s current fuel cell technology is already a leading player achieving the world’s highest power
output density of three kilowatts per litre The FCV concept has more than
one hundred kilowatts of power at its disposal and can
reach a maximum speed of one hundred and seventy
kilometres per hour With the full-scale launch
just over the horizon Toyota is also working to reduce
total fuel cell system cost which in turn, reduces the retail price Owning a fuel cell vehicle will be much like owning a
conventionally-powered vehicle Hydrogen refuelling time
is just three minutes and the cruising range is more
than five hundred kilometres Like all Toyota vehicles the FCV concept has already gone through extensive testing to ensure
safety and reliability With pronounced air intakes in the front sleek, flowing, fluid motion
design lines on the side and the catamaran-inspired rear the FCV concept is designed to evoke the two key characteristics of fuel cell vehicles it emits only water and the acceleration produced
by the electric motors is powerful
