TOYOTA Motor Phils. on August 10 to 18 will display two concept cars that give a glimpse of how cars will be in the near future. To be exhibited at The World of Toyota Motorshow are the Toyota FCV-R and Lexus’s LF-LC, which exemplify the brand’s new design philosophy and technologies.
The FCV-R, or Fuel-Cell Vehicle Reality and Revolution, is a concept model that should see production in 2015. The midsize family FCV runs on hydrogen and does not emit CO2 but only water vapor. Overall, the FCV-R combines breakthrough innovation with ergonomic practicality and futuristic styling.
Mirroring Toyota’s new family design, both the front and rear styling exposes a “W” theme, signifying the fuel-cell cooling system.
The LF-LC, or Future-Luxury Coupé, was first revealed at the North American International Auto Show and flaunts the brand’s signature “spindle” grille. It has a front-engine/rear-wheel drive layout and its interior displays the latest advanced technology with natural forms and shapes to create a driver-focused synergy of form and function. Powering the LF-LC is the latest Advanced Lexus Hybrid Drive that delivers driving performance and fuel efficiency.
Both the FCV-R and the LF-LC shape Toyota’s future in mobility.
The World of Toyota Motorshow will be held at the World Trade Center in Pasay City.
