Toyota FCV-R concept

Toyota presented a new concept, a fuel-cell vehicle fueled by hydrogen, called the FCV. This practical sedan produces CO2 emission free energy that can be produced from a variety of sources and can be easily stored and transported. The fuel-cell model will be launched by the Japanese carmaker around 2015. The fuel-cell unit is situated under the specially designed body and so, the car can accommodate up to four passengers and boasts impressive luggage space. Also, this is not all. The fuel cell stack, that contains a 70 MPa high-pressure hydrogen tank was improved as well and now it is able to provide a cruising distance of approximately 700 km or even more, according to Toyota.
