DETROIT (Reuters) - Toyota Motor Corp plans to market a zero-emission, fuel cell vehicle (FCV) model in its premium Lexus brand within the next few years, a top executive said on Monday.

"Our commitment is to have a fuel cell car in the Lexus brand around 2020," Toyota president Akio Toyoda told reporters at the Detroit auto show on Monday at an event held to unveil a new concept FCV design.

A Lexus FCV would be the second model produced by Toyota that uses hydrogen as a power source to produce zero emissions, following the Mirai launched in late 2014.
