Toyota FT-HT Hybrid Concept Targets Younger Crowd

This year at the Shanghai Motor Show, Toyota came with two concept cars designed exclusively for the Japanese market: one is the Yundong Shuangqing II – a preview version of a vehicle set to be offered exclusively in China. The second one is the FT-HT Yuejia concept – a six-seat car aimed at younger customers.

The FT-HT Concept comes with three rows of two individual seats and was developed on a wheelbase measuring 2,900 mm (114.17 inches). The concept measures 4,770 mm (187.79 inches) in length, 1,920 mm (75.59 inches) in width and 1,840 mm (72.44) in height, making it the perfect car for a big family.

Toyota said the concept features a hybrid powertrain, and while it reveals nothing on this powertrain, we expect it to be the same one as we have seen in Toyota’s production cars: a 1.8-liter Atkinson cycle petrol engine that delivers 98 horsepower combined with an electric motor for a total output of 134 horsepower.

The new FT-HT Yuejia concept is expected to be put into production exclusively for the Chinese market.
