Toyota presented FCV Plus Concept, a hydrogen fuel cell powertrain, at Tokyo motor show 2015

Toyota presented FCV Plus Concept
Today Toyota presented FCV Plus Concept at Tokyo motor show 2015. The radical concept features a hydrogen fuel cell powertrain, but is also capable of generating electricity for local communities as a portable power station

Toyota FCV Plus not only emits pure water from its hydrogen fuel cell powertrain, but also can be used as a generator for your home or on the go when you need it most. It’s one of the first instances of an automaker designing a car to give power back to the consumer, instead of taking it away, Joinfo.ua reports with the reference to NYdailynews.

Inside, a spacious, bubble like cabin seats four in a futuristic, icy nest, and an array of virtual displays, including the entire windshield, bombards the driver and all occupants with a variety of information. Thanks to the flat nature of a hydrogen and electric powertrain, interior space is maximized and the center of gravity remains very low.

The FCV Plus won’t reach production in its current form, but it could lead the way for a small version of the Mirai FCV (fuel cell vehicle), similar to what the Prius C did to the Prius lineup. If it’s anywhere near as radical – and sci-fi cool – as the FCV Plus, we’re definitely on board.
