The Tokyo Motor Show will be featuring an onslaught of concept cars coming from some of Japan’s biggest auto shows. The biggest of them all is Toyota , and they’ve finally revealed exactly what’s in store for us when the show opens at the end of November.
Once of the concepts that will be in attendance is the FCV-R (Fuel Cell Vehicle - Reality & Revolution). The FCV-R is a hydrogen-powered sedan-type concept that is being run on a promising source of CO2 emission-free energy that, according to Toyota, can be produced in a variety of ways using a number of sources and can be easily stored and transported.
The concept is being pegged as a future fuel cell model that the company is looking into bringing into production in a few year’s time. The overall set-up of the FCV-R Concept was designed with the aforementioned fuel-cell unit located just under the a specially designed bodyshell.
This unit carries a 70 MPa high-pressure hydrogen tank and has been improved to be able to produce a cruising distance of approximately 700 km, which is just under the Japanese JC08 test cycle.
More details behind the Toyota FCV-R will be made available when the Tokyo Motor Show opens on November 30.
