I was wondering what else is Toyota doing for a complete environmentally friendly car. And there was the FT-EV concept.

It is built on the same platform as the existing iQ ultra compact, but while the existing iQ car is sold in Japan with hybrid propulsion, the FT-EV will be completely electric. The bad part is that FT-EV has a 50 miles range, so only if you live in urban places you can fully enjoy it. But, until 2012 there is still some time to develop the batteries.

Other news from Toyota tell us that a new Toyota Prius (first hybrid car from Toyota) will be available for testing before the end of the year. 150 from total 500 prototypes will be tested in the US.

  1. If I want to buy this electric FT-EV Build directly in Japan, where and how I can buy it from USA?  Also price ranges.  please.

  2.  PLEASE ADD THE PRICES IN THE CARS INFORMATION.  FROM WHAT $…………….TO…….$ ARE THE PRICES RANGES.
    PRICES ARE VERY IMPORTANT TOO.

  3. Toyota makes the E-Com all electric city vehicle but only for sale in Japan. They used to make the RAV4 EV which had NiMH batteries with a 100+ mile range. The batteries hav lasted over 100,000 miles in all 500 of them so far and some predict about a 180,000 mile life. But only in moderate temperature California. They dies like rocks in Arizona heat or 160 F from tarmac road heat while parked all day.

    Lithium ion and polymer can easily double the range and life. Aerovironments tested the altair nano lithium batteries ,stcok ALTI, with fast 10 minute full recharges and predicted a 500,000 mile life. Also lithium is non toxic, very light weight and 4 times as powerful as lead acid. Combinded with small ultra capcitors the life extends by 4 times.

    It’s a whole new world, an EV world.com now !
