Top 10 Cars of the Geneva Motor Show

9. Toyota FT-Bh Concept

Perhaps one of the few unveilings in Geneva that’s less beautiful than the Bentley is the Toyota FT-Bh. Another concept car, it’s at the exact opposite end of the automotive spectrum, putting the focus on compact size, high fuel efficiency and a low price.

While many years away from becoming a reality, the FT-Bh is a sign from Toyota that its serious about moving its hybrid tech down-market. Having recently launched the Prius c in North America and the Yaris Hybrid in Europe, the FT-Bh takes the brand’s Hybrid Synergy Drive into the mini-car category.

No powertrain details are available, but Toyota says it’s capable of a theoretical 112 mpg rating, while an optional plug-in hybrid version could do almost 300 miles to the gallon.

As for the pricing issue, Toyota wants this to be a realistic vehicle and so instead of high-tech and pricey materials like carbon fiber the FT-Bh makes use of conventional materials to reduce cost.

    The #1 pick was lame…. #2 and #3 were both better.

    I’d drive my Kia Sportage anyday over that big fat Bentley.
    Suits American gangsters and old men in England with hairy backs.

    Despite criticism, don’t look for major changes to a production model.
    We overheard Bentley reps surveying numerous VIP guests about the car
    and all responded that they’d buy one right away.
