Tokyo 2015: Toyota FCV Plus concept reimagines fuel cells

By ,

The 2015 Tokyo Auto Show features the world premiere of the Toyota FCV Plus concept, which the company says is designed to explore how the hydrogen fuel cells used to power an automobile can also be deployed as an energy source for general use.

With the FCV Plus, it is possible to generate electricity from hydrogen stored outside the vehicle, so the car actually can be used to produce power in different locations – at home, at work, or further afield – like some sort of generator.

Relatively small at 3,800 mm long, 1,750 mm wide, and 1,540 mm tall, the FCV Plus maximizes interior space through the use of four in-wheel motors. Once again Toyota is showing the world how technology can help humans and Mother Earth at the same time.
