Tokyo Motor Show 2017
Hydrogen-powered Fine-Comfort Ride concept is Toyota's luxury visionThe aptly-named concept debuts at the Tokyo Motor Show, promising fuel-cell power, a spacious cabin and an AI "agent" that befriends its passengers.
[MUSIC] Over my shoulder is Toyota's Fine Comfort Ride Concept. It's a cool name that kinda says exactly what it is on tin. It's a fine and comfortable ride. But it demonstrates three areas that Toyota It is working in right now. The first is hydrogen fuel technology. This features a hydrogen tank and electric motors in each of the wheels that allow this thing to drive for up to about 1000 kilometers per refill and that refill is only going to take you three to five minutes just like a tank of gas would. The next thing is working on the next generation of comfortable and spacious cabin. Because the wheels and engines are pushed way out the corners it leaves a lot of space inside the car for passengers. Plus it have a body that sort o bulges in the middle which opens up captain space even more so the four captains chair can sort of squivel inside around and probably just can interact with one another. The last thing that the Toyota is working really hard on is artificial intelligence. Each of those captains chair features its own Toyota agent. A sort of Alexa or Siri for the car that learns about the passengers that needs endomotion. There's also autonomous driving technology so you can relax on those long 1000 kilometer hauls. And Toyota had no plans to build this. It's about as pie in the sky as concepts get. But we can take away that Toyota is working really hard on hydrogen, artificial intelligence, and that the car of the future is gonna be vaguely van shaped. [MUSIC]
