Glimpses of Toyota’s upcoming hybrid concept

The FT-Bh styling will likely be fairly concept crazy, but don’t expect it to get too wacky. Toyota states that the FT-Bh “would be made using commonplace, economically viable production methods and technologies, including a down-sized full hybrid powertrain.” In English, that means that Toyota’s working on new ways to add lightness without adding too much to the bottom line. I’m guessing that instead of exotic materials such as carbon fiber, we’ll be seeing quite a bit of composite (read: plastic) construction to get the vehicle down to the estimated bantamweight. Depending on how Toyota executes, this could be a very good thing for those of us who think that lighter is better.
