Toyota, the company that made “hybrid” a buzz word amongst the environmentally conscious unveiled the new FT-CH at the 2010 Detroit Auto Show.
Whilst still just a concept, it is clear that the FT-CH which stands for Future Toyota Compact Hybrid is in essence just a smaller and cooler version of the Prius. Coming in at a massive 22 inches shorter than the current Prius, this car will be ideal for nipping around the city.
Design wise it’s taken inspiration from the “8-bit generation” harking back to the days of the Nintendo NES when the Mario Brothers were nothing more than pixilated blobs dancing around the screen. Very retro!
Toyota have said they aim to sell a million hybrids a year over the course of the first half of the decade, and with this little addition to the family in sight, I can’t see why they won’t.
