Toyota has released a new set of images showing their FT-Bh concept, ahead of its world debut next month at the 82nd Geneva Motor Show.
Toyota’s FT-Bh concept breaks new boundaries in small car efficiency the company said.
“It’s as spacious as an average five-door supermini, but produces about 50 per cent less CO2, and tipping the scales at under 800kg, its weighs less than a three-door Aygo.”
The company took a “total vehicle” approach, focusing on five areas of design and engineering to gain the highest fuel efficiency and lowest emissions: weight reduction, optimum aerodynamic performance (achieving a 30 per cent gain), powertrain efficiency, thermal energy management and electricity saving.
The hybrid system is expected to be the only power-train option for the production version of the FT-Bh, setting it apart from the petrol-powered Up! and the planned e-Up! electric vehicle.
The concept vehicle will be displayed for the first time next month at Geneva. The Toyota NS4 and FCV-R concepts will also be on display, as will the production-ready Yaris Hybrid and Toyota GT 86.
Inautonews team will be at Geneva to get you all the news from the show.
