Geneva: Toyota’s Fine-Comfort Ride Is A Funky FCV For The Family

The Toyota Fine-Comfort Ride is yet another concept that broke cover in Tokyo last year, and eventually made its way to Geneva this week.

This is the type of vehicle that’s more of an autonomous living room on wheels, rather than something you might enjoy driving manually, although it does come with a steering wheel unlike say the VW I.D. Vizzion or the Renault EZ-GO.

The Fine-Comfort Ride is powered by hydrogen fuel cells and individual hub motors. It features a flexible cabin setup, with a fixed rear bench, yet four captain’s chairs that you can move around just like you would in a very practical minivan.

In order to interact with the car, passengers would use various touchscreen displays, while the person that’s technically driving also has access to a steering wheel-mounted display. As far as the eye can see, there are no physical buttons.

As previously stated, this concept is powered by individual electric motors. Unfortunately, the Japanese automaker hasn’t really gone into detail with regards to the Fine-Comfort Ride’s hydrogen fuel cell powertrain. The only things they said was that it had a range of about 1,000 km (621 miles) and that you could refuel in just three minutes.

Toyota also expects saloon-like stability and refinement, thanks to the long wheelbase and edge-to-edge wheel placement, although, we don’t exactly have high hopes for this concept ever becoming something that’s fun to drive.
