Toyota to Introduce Brand-New Hydrogen Fuel-Cell Technology
Calling all eco-friendly consumers in the Dudley area! Toyota has announced its plans to create a hydrogen fuel-cell car by the year 2015. Now even if you are environmentally-conscious you may still have not heard of hydrogen-fuel powered vehicles. This is perfectly understandable as the technology is still arguably in its infancy. There is only one other automaker who has confirmed production of such a vehicle, and its name begins with an H.
So for anyone sold on the magic that is electric, hybrid, plug-in hybrid and even diesel, you may be wondering how a hydrogen fuel-cell powered car with compare. Well, the hope is that hydrogen will actually be the technology that does away with combustion engines entirely. Offering the same performance as traditional gas-powered vehicles, the fuel-cell models can provide a range three times as long as a full tank of gas, and the only emissions are heat and water vapor. And in terms of its comparison to other green power-sources, fuel-cell vehicles are able to "refuel" much more quickly than all-electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. In fact, the big H is claiming a mere 5 minutes for its model.
We at Tri-State Toyota could not be more excited to hear Toyota's plans to help mainstream hydrogen fuel-cell technology. Toyota has always been an innovator, as is evidenced by the Toyota Prius and other eco-friendly models, and we're happy to see the Japanese-automaker going even further.
