The Toyota FT-HS Hybrid Sports Concept Car

Friday, May 30, 2014

Toyota FT-HS Hybrid Sports Toyota wants to adolescent dreams about work, apparently.

FT-HS hybrid sports car concept will be premiered on January 7 at the North American International Auto Show, and we can expect, 50:50 weight distribution and the 400 + hp monster of transmission is very similar to the Lexus GS 450H: 3,5 liter V6,
related to the Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive (HSD) system (which may mean Sulev emissions, but no word on fuel economy yet). This may be the next Supra.

Interestingly, this is not a direct effect of the car on the environment, although we can expect that it is better than "traditional" V8 gasoline engine with the sports car will compete with the (lesser of two evils). No, the interesting thing is "halo" effect, it could, making hybrids cool and desirable new public. Even if they never end up buying this model, they saw technology and associate it with something they want, not what they do not.
