Toyota introduces the FT-HS hybrid sports car concept. See it in Detroit!
Toyota has been making their hybrid powered vehicles for a while now, with the Prius taking top fuel efficiency honors and their Lexus hybrids taking the top luxury spot. Now, they turn their attention to the sportier side of things with their new concept car for Detroit, the FT-HS.
The vehicle will be powered by a 3.5 liter V6 engine mated to an electric motor and battery pack. The system in tandem is expected to make around 400 horsepower and propel the vehicle to 60 miler per hour in around 4 seconds.
Electric sports cars seem to be sprouting up all over by smaller manufacturers, will Toyota be the first of the major automotive giants to release a "green" sports car? Time will tell.
