Toyota FCV pictures revealed

Toyota Motor Corporation is a Japanese company that has high expectations. It has unique ideas to design amazing cars and to satisfy even the most difficult client. And innovation could anytime be its nickname as new ideas are always developed. Such a project is the Toyota FCV fuel cell vehicle at which Toyota has been thinking since 2009. The Japanese company seems pretty keen on developing and working on alternative powered vehicles. According to them in the future there will be three types of cars. Inside the city people will use electric vehicles and outside there will be either electric hybrid cars or hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. And here we are with the first images of the FCV which is supposed to enter production in 2015.

The Toyota FCV resembles its concept vehicle and it will be the first ever mass produced hydrogen- powered cell vehicle coming from the Japanese brand. It will enter sales in Japan before April 2015, following Europe and North America in summer. In Japan it will be priced somewhere around 7M yen (about 68,700 USD / 50,450 EUR / 40,500 GBP) and it will be available at Toyota and Toyopet dealerships but only in those areas where a hydrogen refueling infrastructure is under construction.

The Toyota FCV features some headlights that apparently use a LED technology, vertical daytime running lights installed within a huge front bumper with a big lower grille and equally large intakes. The alloy wheels could be bigger whereas the sloped roofline doesn't blend with the rear end where there's a pair of droopy-looking taillights mated with a red bar that runs across the rear's width and incorporates the reverse lights. There's also a red triangle which probably serves as the fog light. The vehicle might sprint the 0-62 mph is about 10 seconds, having a maximum range of 300 miles. A complete fuel fill will last for about three minutes. And that’s more than ok. However, it needs a lot of courage to make this step. We’ll see if Toyota writes history with its FCV.
