Toyota Releases New Teaser Photos and First Video of FT-Bh Supermini Concept

We now have a slightly better view of Toyota’s brand-new FT-Bh Concept, as the Japanese automaker published the first real life teaser photos and a slightly more revealing video. The name of the prototype model is an acronym for Future Toyota B-segment hybrid.

Toyota says that it designed the FT-Bh for maximum fuel efficiency while using economically viable methods and materials for its construction.

According to the company, the concept offers the same space as an average five-door supermini but tips the scales at under 800kg (1,764 pounds), meaning it weighs less than a three-door Aygo.

And even though it’s a conceptual proposal, Toyota claims that the FT-Bh only uses materials and production processes already commonplace in the automotive industry.

The FT-Bh is fitted with a down-sized hybrid powertrain that is said to produce around 50 per cent lower CO2 emissions than the current average for the supermini segment.

More detailed information on the FT-Bh is expected to be released closer to the Geneva Motor Show that opens on March 6.
