At a recent shareholders' meeting in Japan, Toyota executives stated their continued commitment to bringing a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle to market in the near future. The previous forecast was for production to start in 2014, but they've revised their timeline, pushing production back a year to 2015.
That still seems awfully soon for a full-scale production of a hydrogen car, but maybe Toyota knows something we don't. Hydrogen fuel cells have a lot of potential, but the technology and infrastructure is still way behind electric vehicles.
We're more optimistic about the plug-in hybrid and all-electric models they're planning for release much sooner, but we'll be interested to hear more about the HFC model and to see if they stick to their timeline.
