Tokyo: Toyota FCV-R concept revealed image

Besides its newest sports car, the GT 86, which has been officially presented at the Tokyo Motor Show, the Japanese based automaker Toyota has used the same automotive event in order to present its FCV-R concept.

According to the car manufacturer, the Toyota FCV-R concept is actually previewing a production model which will hit the market in 2015. As you can see from the images below, the Toyota FCV-R actually looks like a futuristic Prius model, with its aerodynamic bumpers, curved roofline and LED lights. The Japanese based automaker says that the Toyota FCV-R concept is actually a fuel-cell vehicle fueled by hydrogen.

“A practical sedan-type next generation fuel-cell concept vehicle fueled by hydrogen, a promising source of CO2 emission-free energy that can be produced from a variety of sources and can be easily stored and transported. This concept model is a highly practical fuel-cell vehicle (FCV) that is planned for launch in about 2015”, as the manufacturer says in its official press release.

It seems that even if the Toyota FCV-R concept is previewing a production model which will hit the market in 2015, Alcantara upholstery is something we will see more in the future, along with metallic trim, a tablet-like center stack, a massive infotainment system, a digital instrument cluster and four individual seats.
