Toyota's new hybrid concept, the FT-CH, came out of its European Design and Development center in Nice, France. It is a compact car created to be an entry-level hybrid.
The car would use Toyota's Synergy hybrid system, similar to that used in the Prius, which can drive the car under electric power at low speeds.
Although small by U.S. standards, in most countries the FT-CH would be considered large for a city car. The CH in the name stands for compact hybrid.
The FT-CH is a four-door hatchback, a fairly common design for Europe, offering ample seating and practical cargo space.
The exhaust pipes appear to be mere vents in the bumper, perhaps echoing the minimal emissions of the car.
The cabin has the usual concept car accouterments, with odd graphics in a monolithic instrument cluster, and a strange climate control knob at the front of the console.
