Toyota FCV Concept a shout-out for sustainable energy
The fact that we’re running out of fossil fuels isn’t a joke. As a matter of fact, we’ve seen car manufacturers across the globe tighten the screws a bit, to achieve better fuel economy. However, according to some, the future of zero emission and zero fossil fuels is not electric cars, but rather hydrogen fuel cells. And that is exactly what Toyota showcased at the Tokyo Motor Show last month.
Dubbed the FCV Concept, the Toyota runs on its proprietary small, lightweight “FC Stack” and two 70 MPa high-pressure hydrogen tanks placed beneath the specially-designed body. Despite that, it can accommodate up to four passengers. In any case, the Toyota FC Stack boasts power output density of 3 kilowatts per litre. The car also boasts a range of 482 km.
Toyota say that they intend to put a vehicle such as the FCV Concept into production sometime in 2015, which is not far away, but it won’t be cheap.
