After giving us a sneak preview of the FT-Bh hybrid last month, Toyota has unveiled the Toyota FT-Bh hybrid concept in Geneva.
Toyota’s team was tasked with getting the best possible fuel economy and super low emissions with the FT-Bh concept. They focused on five areas: reduced weight, lower driving resistance (including aerodynamic and tire performance), improved powertrain efficiency, thermal energy management and electricity savings.
The super mini hybrid is longer than the Toyota Yaris, but thanks to the use of high-tensile steel, aluminium and magnesium it’s 25 percent lighter. The FT-Bh is also very aerodynamic with a low 0.235 drag coefficient. Thanks to its hybrid system that uses a small two-cylinder 1.0L engine, the FT-Bh is rated at 134.5 mpg on the European driving cycle and has CO2 emissions of just 49g/km.
