Toyota has debuted several concept cars during Tokyo Motor Show 2015, one of them got our attention due to its futuristic design. Toyota FCV Plus is a futuristic concept car created with future hydrogen-based society in mind, compressed hydrogen has a higher energy density than electricity, it can be generated from wide range of raw materials. Hydrogen is a promising future energy source, keeping this in mind, Toyota envisions a sustainable society where hydrogen energy is in widespread use through this concept car. The main goal of this concept car is to add an all-new sense of purpose to the automobile by turning fuel cell vehicles from eco cars to energy cars.
Aside from having its own hydrogen tank, Toyota FCV Plus can also generate electricity directly from hydrogen stored outside the vehicle. This hydrogen then transformed into a stable source electric power for use at home or on-the-go. when you don’t use the car as a transport, you can share its power generation capabilities with communities, create an organized local infrastructure.

Mounted between front tires, the car’s fuel cell stack can be reused as an electricity generating device. The hydrogen tank is located behind the rear seat. Together, with the adoption of independent in-wheel motors in all 4 wheels, this mechanism allows for a spacious cabin despite this vehicle’s compact body. By focusing functional parts on both front and rear area, this vehicle creates an optimal weight balance and a wide field of vision.
