Toyota FT-HS HybridToyota is ready to unveil its FT-HS hybrid sports coupe at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. This incredible looking vehicle combines sporty design with a hybrid engine, and constitutes Toyota’s vision of a responsible yet stylish sports car. Built in answer to the question “What is a suitable sports car for the 21st century?” Toyota believes it has the answer.

The car is designed to appeal to an emerging customer demographic that considers economy and environmental responsibility to be as important as looks and performance. The car features a sleek, aerodynamic and lightweight design with a V6 3.5-litre 400 bhp engine connected to rear-wheel drive and will clear 0–62 in around 4 seconds.

“Drivers today are not satisfied with cars that are simply fast,” said Kevin Hunter, vice president, CALTY Design Research. “In addition to driving enjoyment, today’s drivers are concerned about safety, ecology and social responsibility.”
