2015/16 Toyota FCV



 This is the production version of the FCV, Toyota's 1st hydrogen powered car.
I cannot comment on the car obviously. I am sure it drives fine and is quite a marvel of futuristic technology.
But that shape... Really.

It doesn't appear more modern than a Corolla.
They showed us a concept a while ago that was fine. Nothing too crazy. Yet they figured a way to make it even more boring. For a car that will display their most advanced technology.
Amazing....

This is the concept. Besides the weird front end, it looks OK.
Maybe this design will become the next Prius....

Vince...99% sure that's the Lexus HS.

EVERYTHING matches up with it.

I'm pretty sure its a testbed.. not the actual sheetmetal that it will eventually have. I think it is an HS.. or maybe even a new Corolls bodyshell. Either way, what is obvious is that it won't compete directly in size with the Honda FCV.

Did Honda do this years ago? Is that just being left to rot on the vine?
