Toyota shows off final FCV Fuel Cell Vehicle Look
Today Toyota revealed the final look of its Fuel Cell Vehicle, FCV, for the Japanese market. The new FCV has a familiar look, partly because it has been shown before in prototype versions, but partly too because it looks like other fuel efficient designs we have seen. This version will also be very close to what goes on sale in the US.
FCV Has a Familiar Look
The look of the FCV to my eye is that of the GM EV-1 in some views. I also see a bit of the Saturn styling from the side. In addition, it is hard not to see some of the Honda FCEV, which our Honda reporter, Parks McCants recently pointed out, has been in development for 55 years and is still not for sale. The Honda FCEV has been leased to small numbers of customers in a sort of beta version for a number of years.
