The Fine-Comfort Ride concept features the company’s next-generation hydrogen fuel cell technology, and it could make production between 2025 and 2030.
Toyota has stated that the next-gen fuel cell is more compact, lighter, more efficient and affordable to produce. Kiyotaka Ise, head of advanced R&D for Toyota, said he wanted to cut costs and enhance performance by about 50 percent for every new generation of engine. The car claims to have a range of 1,000km between refills, from a 6kg capacity tank.
Inside, the focus is on comfort. The seats are adjustable, even to a fully reclined sleeping position, there are numerous digital displays and projection screens built around occupants and the seat layout can be altered as well. The rearmost seats are in a sofa-like bench configuration, while the front two rows are made up of individual seats.
Toyota says the Fine-Comfort Ride can be refuelled in about three minutes.
