Toyota Hydrogen Concept Reaches Detroit
In recent years we have seen Toyota make huge strides in the advancement of automotive technology. For example, let's take a look at the Toyota Prius - the very first mass produced hybrid gas and electric vehicle. Not only is this vehicle a top seller in the US, but across the world! From the dealer lots at Toyota of Wallingford in Wallingford, CT to dealerships across the country, the Toyota Prius is one of the most demanded vehicles of all time.
At 2012's North American International Auto Show in Detroit, Toyota took the next step in the "green movement" with their all new Hydrogen Fuel Cell Vehicle (FCV).
Officially dubbed as the Toyota FCV-R, the concept only caught a few glimpses at 2012 NAIAS. Toyota has been keeping relatively quiet about this new vehicle, since a production model is not yet available. Their hope to really impress the public once a production car is ready.
The FCV-R (FCV- Fuel Cell Vehicle, R for "Reality and Revolution") is significant because "it reminds us that Toyota is still planning to field a hydrogen-powered car by 2015."1
Toyota started the trend with the Prius, and was followed by a plethora of other brands later. While some auto makers have tried bringing Hydrogen-powered cars to the public, they have not had very much success. Right now, Hydrogen powered cars are not nearly as as popular as hybrid gas / electric cars. Once Toyota releases their FCV to the general public, we anticipate this to change rather quickly!
