The 2011 Tokyo Motor Show is underway in Japan's capital city December 3-11, and TreeHugger got an exclusive preview of the cars on hand.

First up, Toyota. The car manufacturer pulled the wraps off its FCV-R concept car for the first time during the show's press days. This sizable sedan runs on a hydrogen fuel cell power plant which Toyota claims can propel the FCV-R for 430 miles between hydrogen fillups.

Japan's leading automaker has been tinkering with conceptual fuel cell cars for some time, as first seen in the Fine-N back in 2005.
