Toyota has revealed the vehicles that it will showcase at the 45th Tokyo Motor Show (TMS). The Japanese brand first handed out details about the Crown concept, TJ Cruiser, GR HV Sports, Century, the Concept-i Series, and the Sora fuel cell bus over the last few weeks. Joining them is the Fine-Comfort Ride fuel cell vehicle (FCV), which is a 6-seater van with an advance utilization of hydrogen energy.
Based on the images, the Fine-Comfort Ride sports a diamond body shape, with the middle section being the widest. This maximizes the space on the 2nd-row seats. Another thing you would notice instantly is the position of the wheels, as they are pushed further on the vehicle’s corners for improved stability and reduced driving noise.
The name may hint a lot about its interior. The Fine-Comfort Ride adopts Toyota's concept of "being wrapped in comfort." What the car boasts the most is the flexibility of its seating arrangement. The 1st and 2nd rows are composed of 4 captain seats that can be rotated to face each other, while the rear features a bench-type seat.
It measures 4,830mm from nose to rear, 1,950mm side-to-side, and 1,650mm from the ground, while the wheelbase has a length of 3,450mm. Of note, Toyota said that this concept previews the brand’s future premium sedan.
For now, details about its technical specifications aren't available yet. The only thing given out is that the Fine-Comfort Ride FCV has a cruising range of approximately 1,000 km based on the JC08 test in Japan.
That makes three performance oriented vehicles for the Japanese manufacturer.
