Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., will display the FINE-N hydrogen fuel cell concept vehicle at the 2004 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.

The FINE-N is an extension of the FINE-S shown at last year's NAIAS, and is another example of Toyota's commitment to develop environmentally friendly vehicles. The FINE-N's unique styling coupled with 4WD uncovers the design, versatility, and performance potential for future fuel-cell cars and trucks. Its ground-hugging and aerodynamic design and prominent fenders make for a very smart and sophisticated vehicle.

The vehicle's long wheelbase and powertrain configuration allow the wheels to be placed at the far corners of the vehicle. The wheels have their own electric motors that are powered by the Toyota fuel cell stack and a lithium-ion battery and rated at 25kW maximum output and 110N-m maximum torque. Drive-by-wire technology controls each motor's drive power and braking to provide optimized wheel-by-wheel acceleration/deceleration and steering control according to driving conditions. The FINE-N has a cruising distance of 311 miles.

The fuel cell stack, power control unit and lithium-ion battery are placed beneath the floor resulting in a lowered center of gravity and minimized yaw moment of inertia. As a result of this unique engineering, the FINE-N has a very spacious interior cabin with a low, full, flat floor easily accommodating four passengers.

The FINE-N has an advanced driver authentication and personalization system based on face-recognition biometric technology for ultimate security. The vehicle also utilizes a smart keyless entry system and makes automatic personalized pedal, steering wheel, air conditioning, and navigation and audio systems adjustments for added driver and passenger comfort.
