Wearing the familiar ‘FT’ prefix carried by more than a few ofToyota’s concepts, the new car will be dubbed FT-Bh – pointing to the car’s B-segment city-car size, and a hybrid power-train.

The FT-Bh concept isToyota’s vision of a full hybrid city car study, lightweight with high fuel efficiency and low emissions.Toyotaengineers have ensured that the concept uses existing technology and there are no expensive materials or complex manufacturing processes involved in its production.

The hybrid system is expected to be the only power-train option for the production version of the FT-Bh, setting it apart from the petrol-powered Up! and the planned e-Up! electric vehicle.

The automaker says the city car has been designed to achieve low emissions within an economically viable production framework, which means that it is most certainly already cued for production.

Numerous other concept cars will be on display at theToyotabooth, including the NS4 and FCV-R Concepts. Accompanying these two will beToyota’s Diji concept that provides the owner a look at the future of car-driver interaction and personalization.

And, let’s not forget the European premiere of the Toyota GT 86 sports car. No other details have been released yet, though the first press day takes place on March 6 at the revealing ceremony.
