Concept cars are becoming more and more outlandish, as if inspired from science fiction novels. Some concept cars presented during the past years aim to turn our everyday vehicles into flying ones. Others are self-driving cars that promise to take their owners wherever they might wish, while at the same time letting them rest leisurely in the car. However, Toyota aims to dazzle even more with its new Toyota FCV Plus concept car. After announcing it planned to launch a self-driving car in 2020, the car manufacturer now expands its green vehicle line.
Although electric cars have become popular during the past years, there are some car manufacturers that are not satisfied enough with this type of technology. Such a manufacturer is Toyota, who goes for a different type of approach in regards to the Toyota FCV Plus. The concept car focuses on hydrogen fuel-cell and will debut later this month at the Toyota Motor Show. According to the company, this concept car is the embodiment of their vision: a hydrogen-based society. The concept car, that benefits from a futuristic approach in design, is powered by four in-wheel electric motors and a fuel cell stack.
The vehicle comes with its own hydrogen tank, but can also generate power by using hydrogen stored outside the vehicle. A secondary use for this car is to be used someday as a power hub for the community. In regards to its interior design, the Toyota FCV Plus foregoes any notions of traditionalism, opting once more for a futuristic approach. The concept car does not use a classic dashboard, instead featuring a head-up display that projects the vital information regarding the vehicle.
At the moment there is no knowing if the Toyota FCV Plus will ever seen production stage. Nonetheless, it is an interesting concept. Would you like to drive such a car?
