We've seen seemingly countless versions of the FT-86 concept car — the original FT-86, the sportier FT-86G, the Scion FR-S and, of course, this. The good news? The production version will be revealed later this year, and will go on sale locally in the middle of 2012.
Powered by four electric motors, one for each wheel, the e-tron has a total of 230kW at its disposal. The 100km/h mark can be dispatched in 4.8 seconds, and the Lithium-ion batteries give the car a range of 248km.
This is a supercar with a difference, as it's a hybrid — and a diesel one at that. An electric motor and a three-cylinder turbo-diesel will together produce 241kW of power, and take the car from zero to 100km/h in just 4.8 seconds.
This plug-in hybrid SUV mates a 70kW/125Nm 1.6-litre petrol engine with two electric motors, one each for the front and rear axle. Together, the two electric engines can provide 60kW of power and 200Nm of torque.
Fuel economy of 2L/100km is claimed, as the car works primarily as an electric vehicle until the batteries are nearing empty. Depending on the situation, the petrol motor will kick in and either recharge the batteries or provide extra power.
We're rather impartial to the V60's shapely wagon form; even more so when it's clad in matte white paint. The car seen here is a precursor to a production plug-in hybrid that's due to go on sale overseas in 2012 — no word yet on Australian availability.
The drivetrain features a 150kW/440Nm 2.4-litre five-cylinder diesel engine and a 50kW/200Nm electric motor located at the back and powering the rear wheels. Electric-only range is 50km, fuel consumption is rated at 1.9L/100km and zero to 100km/h can be done in 6.9 seconds.
