Toyota has previously revealed a sketch of the new car, but the two new images show more details. One shows the rear light and tailgate, while the other appears to be a close-up of the headlight.
The FT-Bh name stands for Future Toyota B-segment Hybrid. The B-segment part refers to the conventional supermini category that includes cars such as the Ford Fiesta and Volkswagen Polo.
Toyota says the FT-Bh has a ‘downsized’ hybrid powertrain and is built using ‘economically viable methods and materials.’
Despite the FT-Bh having the same dimensions as a full-size supermini, Toyota says the sub-800kg car weighs less than an Aygo 3dr.
Toyota launched an all-new Yaris last year, and a Yaris Hybrid goes on sale in June, so any production model based on the FT-Bh would appear to be some years away.
More details of the FT-Bh concept car will be revealed at the Geneva motor show.
