The Japanese based automaker Toyota has recently announced its plans to officially unveil the new Fuel Cell Hybrid Vehicle Concept, next week, during the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show.

Toyota is getting ready for the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show and with the automotive event coming in pretty fast as days go by, the company is now announcing the world debut of a brand new concept car. The model in question is named the Toyota Fuel Cell Hybrid Vehicle Concept, or FCHV, and it will preview a 2015 production model which will use a fuel cell, two high-pressure hydrogen tanks, a Hybrid Synergy Drive system and a 21 kW battery.

“Toyota believes the Fuel Cell Hybrid Vehicle offers the best solution to the challenges of energy sources and emissions, with hydrogen as an ideal, ultra-clean fuel”, said the carmaker in its official press release.

Several improvements were made to the system since the old FCV-R Concept was unveiled in Tokyo, back in 2011, but no specifications have been released yet, except the fact that the total range of the model will increase to 350+ miles (563 km) and it will work in temperatures as low as -30 degrees Celsius. The final production version of the model is believed to be priced at approximately 82,575 EUR (70,000 GBP / 109,030 USD) for the final production version. More details on the model will be announced in Frankfurt.
