The Japanese based automaker Toyota is getting ready to finally introduce a production fuel-cell vehicle in approximately two years, but until this will happen, the company is currently offering a preview of the model with the help of the FCV Concept. The Toyota Fuel Cell Vehicle Concept is everything but a nice looking car and its main purpose is to lead the way of hydrogen powered vehicles, as it takes just 3 minutes to completely refuel it.

The new Toyota FCV Concept is getting a 3 kW / L power output density and it has a total output of at least 100 kW. The model in question is also getting two 70 MPa high pressure fuel stacks, which are located beneath the body. The approximate range of the FCV Concept stands at 500 km (310 miles). The Toyota FCV is 4,870 mm long, 1,810 mm wide and 1,535 mm tall, riding on a wheelbase of 2,780 mm. The model can carry up to four people in the cabin. More details on it will be announced in Tokyo.
