The Paris motor show will take place later this month and there’s already news of a number of the big manufacturers unveiling their new designs, such as the; Audi Q5, Mercedes-AMG GT Coupe and BMW X2.
There will be a number of concept cars at the show also, as manufacturers show their views of the future. However I don’t think it gets more futuristic than Toyota’s hydrogen fuelled FCV Plus concept. A concept we believe, will be a big talking point.
The main and somewhat obvious reason behind this statement of course is how it looks. The FCV Plus concept has gone all out with the futurist style especially with the eye catching, glowing halo rear wheel lights and the blue and white exterior paint job, working together to give the all-round into the future feel.
Staying on the topic of the exterior, notice the square wheels? We did and we feel they look rather similar to that of the Rolls Royce Next 100 concept we covered a while back.
The interior, if possible, looks more futuristic than the exterior, almost as if you’re looking at the concept on the computer it was designed from. In the back, passenger seats again take on the flowing computer generated design, whilst the cockpit looks though it has been taken straight from a sci-fi film.
However, the look of this somewhat spacecar is nothing in comparison to Toyota’s vision. Their aim for this concept model is to use compressed hydrogen to fuel the vehicle, which is becoming quite the popularity amongst manufacturers at the moment. Toyota say the hydrogen fuel has “A higher energy density than electricity, can be generated from a wide range of raw materials, and is easy to store”.
That’s not all, following the cars economical value, it is also said to be able to be used as a power source for communities. Imagine if the whole neighbourhood had one!
Obviously, don’t expect to see this car in your local Toyota dealership any time soon, as they say the car will not reach production for at least 15 years. If this car can become a reality, then we can get very excited about the future indeed., but who’s to know what’ll be thought up in that 15 year wait???
