Toyota has recently brought its 2015 FCV to the Aspen Ideas Festival in Colorado, for a local unveil.
After it has been shown on the Old Continent just last week, for the very first time, the 2015 Toyota FCV (Fuel Cell Vehicle) is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the car manufacturer bringing it to the Aspen Ideas Festival in Colorado, for a local debut. The model in question has been described as the “car of the future” and it surely managed to attract quite a lot of curious eyes when they heard that it is powered by hydrogen and filling its tank takes less than 5 minutes.
“Slowly but surely, new technologies are changing how we think about automobiles and transportation — from intelligent, automated systems that team up with drivers to improve safety, to zero-emission vehicles that emit nothing but water vapor. These technologies will help save lives, improve the environment, create jobs and help the U.S. maintain technical leadership in a field that is an important contributor to economic growth”, said the Toyota Motor Engineering and Manufacturing CEO and president, Osamu Nagata.
The brand new 2015 Toyota FCV (Fuel Cell Vehicle) is able to accelerate form 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in approximately 10 seconds and it will come with an impressive range of about 482 km (300 miles). Just like we said above, filling up its tank will take less than 5 minutes. The Toyota FCV will first go on sale in Japan, next April, and it will start from 7 million yen / under 70,000 USD and it will be launched eventually in Europe too, and in North America.
