Toyota has just announced that will premiere three concept cars at the upcoming 2011 Tokyo Motor Show.

The first is the FT-EV III (short for Future Toyota – Electric Vehicle III) which is based on the iQ and represents a full electric four-seater ideal for covering short distances (around 65 miles). This concept uses a lithium-ion battery pack and is something which the automaker intends to launch on the market in 2012.

The second is called the FCV-R ( an abbreviation for Fuel Cell Vehicle – Reality & Revolution) and in this case we’re talking about a hydrogen fuelled concept measuring 4.7 metres in length that might get the green light for production by 2015.
