 Toyota FT-Bh Hybrid Concept Car 2012

This is called the FT-BH, and an ultra-light oil electric concept is built using cheap materials conventional construction methods.Creating its world premiere in 2012 Geneva Motor Show, Toyota FT-Bh concept of ultra-light, sub-800 kg, full hybrid vehicle designed to reduce fuel consumption and reduce emissions at an affordable B-segment family car.It is clear that the expression under the language of design and style of Keane Priority appearance next generation vehicles Toyota, FT-Bh has the dimension of B-segment cars. It is 3985 mm long, 1695 mm wide and 1400 mm in height, with a long-wheelbase 2570 mm.The design concept is a new five pillars of optimal orientation of the fuel efficiency and minimize emissions: Mass reduction, driving resistance in the form of aerodynamics and rolling resistance tires, transmission efficiency, thermal management and energy saving.The combination of a very significant reduction in weight for a car of this class of painstaking aerodynamic, strong reduction in driving resistance and a modest, but highly effective full-hybrid powertrain, Toyota FT-Bh concept is projected to deliver average fuel consumption of just 2.1 l/100 km, and CO2 emissions of 49 g / km.FT-Bh goal of CO2, which are less than half the current 1.0-liter Yaris. But only at the expense of mass production of affordable ultra-low exhaust gas can sales is large enough to make a real contribution to the world of real reductions in the total number of vehicle CO2 emissions on a global scale.
  Toyota FT-Bh Hybrid Concept Car 2012

Directed Thus, for maximum availability, methods and thought processes are shown in the design concept does not involve the use of exotic, expensive materials and complicated procedures, but only those who are already common in the automotive industry.In addition, in order to light weight car a low center of gravity and the maximum efficiency of power are useful not only in terms of low fuel consumption and emissions, but also offer more flexible, agile and engaging driving experience.Designed in accordance with the "Ecomotion" theme, the exterior design Toyota FT-Bh concept combines the emotional shape with an extremely high level of aerodynamic characteristics in order to achieve ultra-low fuel consumption.Its form is inspired almost exclusively by natural air flow to the outer surfaces, the concept represents a new approach to the design of the body. Major groups such as the roof is formed to represent the fabric stretched taut between the attachment points, reflecting their ultra-lightweight composition.Inheriting under Priority Toyota design language and style of Keen Look at the front end is dominated by large undergrille, strongly sculptured bonnet and vertical headlamps integrated into the front fenders.
 Toyota FT-Bh Hybrid Concept Car 2012
 
Tensioned fabric roof panels style adds a feeling of lightness in the vehicle. This once again underlines the ultra-thin legs, and that maximize the glazing in the cab for improved visibility and the proposed space cabin.Curved rear FT-Bh creates a stable position with a low center of gravity. Inside, it is easy to merge into the rear of the car, raised the rear bumper and sharp, chevron-shaped elements of the corner, style optimizes the aerodynamic characteristics, which contributes to a low drag coefficient of 0,235 Cd.Elastic fabric panel design theme continued throughout the interior style of the car, and easily visible in the form of the center console, instrument panel, seats and steering wheel. The concave shape of the center console creates a driver-oriented cockpit, while maintaining a sense of lightness and space, and.Measures to save fuel by reducing the load the way Toyota FT-Bh concept is aimed at aerodynamics and reduced rolling resistance coefficient. Minimizing the drag coefficient, and especially small frontal area of ​​the target vehicle drag reduction of 25%. And the use of low rolling resistance accounts for a significant improvement in fuel economy.The concept is a comprehensive study in the next generation of aerodynamic technology. It has a curtain of air intakes front limbs, drives the flow of air, air flow, breaking the door mirrors are replaced by cameras, door handles electric lock with a pagoda roof fell back, as well as dramatically reduce the rear end of the inclusion of the air gap outlet, and sex spoiler to smooth the flow of air from the rear of the car.Taken together, these measures reduce the rate of FT-BH resistance from the B-segment, an average of about 0,29 Cd only 0.235.A new concept Toyota identifies several cyclic "efficiency benefit sequence" is made possible by the synergies between aerodynamics and fuel efficiency.
 Toyota FT-Bh Hybrid Concept Car 2012
 
For example, if fuel efficiency is increased, the transmission generates less heat, and cooling system can be reduced. This allows the reduction of the cooling air is necessary, which allows the front of the vehicle must be changed. This change reduces the drag coefficient, in turn, will lead to further increase fuel efficiency.The fuel tank provides another example: if the fuel economy improves, the fuel tank can be reduced. Reducing the mass of the fuel tank allows the amount of air that passes in the rear of the car increases, which reduces resistance. Aerodynamic drag is reduced, which leads to further improvement in fuel economy.The concept of a trip on the narrow, large diameter, 145/55R18 low rolling resistance, which makes even a significant contribution to reducing the load path FT-BH and driving resistance without loss of traction or grip.Full hybrid system Toyota FT-BH-disc is a masterpiece of reducing transmission. Almost 90 pounds lighter than the HSD system Prius, it has a significant weight saving of each component of the drive-line.The gasoline engine is 38 kg lighter than the Prius. A lithium-ion battery weighs almost half as much nickel-metalhydride battery Prius.Lightweight, two-cylinder, 1.0 liter Atkinson cycle petrol engine combines high efficiency with low heat capacity. Combustion efficiency was improved by adopting a long stroke, high, 13:1 compression ratio, the next generation D4 injection system with high-pressure fuel injection, a larger exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) cooling system and a high drop port design.Ultra-low friction measures were applied to the axis of the receiver, timing belt and an electric water pump and meticulous control of thermal energy involves the use of low heat capacity, reducing friction and cold careful control of the heat flux on the regulation of motor oil and water temperatures.As a result of this remarkable transmission achieved an average fuel consumption of just 2.1 l/100 km and CO2 emissions of 49 g / km.
 Toyota FT-Bh Hybrid Concept Car 2012
 
The combination of low weight of the vehicle and offers a hybrid FT-Bh drivers return to the fundamental pleasures of city driving. Light Concept, 786 kg curb weight as to respond to both the gas and brake inputs, while the electric hybrid powertrain produces maximum torque from place to ensure agile handling on the road.Gain adaptation of the Toyota Hybrid Drive Synergy ® technology of alternative energy sources, FT-Bh also serves as a study for an even greater fuel efficiency in the medium term through the potential installation of two alternative powertrains: hybrid compressed natural gas (CNG-HV) version with CO2 emissions of 38 g / km, as well as hybrid (PHEV) version emitting just 19 g / km of CO2.

Toyota FCV-R Concept Car 2012

Toyota believes that fuel cell vehicles still have a chance. Thus, the above cool kind of FCV-R, the actual functional hydrogen car with a few LCD panels dashboard together with the driving range about 700 miles or 435 miles. Alas, interested buyers will have to wait until 2015 to release his first Toyota.
A fuel cell vehicle, which is currently projected to cost about $ 125,000. And, of course not talking about hydrogen fuel stations will be widely available across the country at that time.
Engineers snugged the fuel cell unit under the passenger cell to save passenger and cargo capacity. FCV-R Concept has room for four and transmission, and Toyota claims that the car has a range of about 435 miles. It works for us. Currently, FCV-R is only a concept, although it is interesting to see Toyota to play with a hydrogen fuel cell technology again.
Toyota believes that when it comes to the development of future powertrains to provide sustainable mobility, of course, one size does not fit all requirements.
The different needs of transmission and the solution are determined not only by the size of the vehicle and distance traveled, but also regional differences in the availability of energy, infrastructure and regulations.
As a hybrid, hybrid, electric and fuel cell vehicles to replace most of today's conventional cars electric vehicles will be used for short trips, and fuel cell vehicles for medium-and long-distance travel.

Strengthening environmental leading company in the pursuit of sustainable mobility, Toyota Hybrid Synergy Drive ® technology has been specifically designed be "the future", and can be easily adapted for use in hybrid vehicles (PHEV), electric vehicles (EV) and fuel cell vehicles (FCV).
Toyota believes that the solution to energy and emissions issues, the proposed fuel cell vehicle (FCV) makes its closest technology is not yet final eco-car with hydrogen as the ideal ultra-clean source of energy.
Production of electricity by chemical reaction between hydrogen (stored in the vehicle) and oxygen (from air), the structure of a fuel cell consists of electrodes and polyelectrolyte films sandwiched between separators. When hundreds of cells stacked together, the result would be "Stack" fuel cell stack is known as the FC.
Creating a zero-CO2, NOx and PM and the only radiation by water vapor, the fuel cell shows outstanding energy efficiency. In theory, it can convert as much as 83% of the hydrogen into electrical energy. This is about twice the efficiency is possible with the current generation of petrol and diesel engines.
This is not only the highest efficiency of hydrogen fuel cell powertrain to save energy and reduce costs, but also provides a unique quiet, smooth driving experience with a minimum of noise, vibration and harshness, while providing long range driving and refueling process as quickly as the conventional vehicles.

Toyota started working on FCVs in 1992, developing its own hydrogen fuel cells and high-pressure hydrogen tanks in the house. The company applies its own hybrid Synergy Drive ® technology FCV development, replacing gasoline engines with fuel cells and fuel tanks with high pressure hydrogen tanks. Toyota FC Stack performance leader in fuel cell technology.
Toyota showed its first fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEV) in 1996. Every year since, the company improved its fuel cell technology and expanded its opportunities to improve performance, driving range and commercial viability.
In 2002, Toyota has developed the first fuel cell in the world for a limited hybrid car rentals, and the first bus FC certified Japanese government. In the past, decade, the company continued its work on a residential building fuel-cell buses put on road fuel cells, and in 2008, began FCHV-Adv.
Toyota FCHV-ADV proposed 25% improvement in fuel efficiency and, with the help of Toyota developed 70MPa high-pressure tanks for hydrogen storage have been one filling a power reserve of about 830 km, more than twice that of its predecessor. In addition, Toyota FCHV-ADV can operate in -30 ° C, which is much improving its cold weather.
Through the merger of advanced technology, clever ideas and smart packaging, Toyota FCV-R combines a breakthrough in ergonomically practicality and futuristic design.
The inclusion of a priority, and Keane believe the design elements of the latest model of the family Toyota, front and back style uses the "W" motif, symbolizing fuel cell cooling system. This creates a smooth, aerodynamically efficient car silhouette and the presence of a unique way.
In a clean, strongly detailed interior seats "garb" in the form of traditional Japanese costumes. The center console mount, dual-screen The Evolution of Life Touch Toyota recently Toyota IQ-provides easy access to major entertainment management.
