Hydrogen-powered car will go on sale next year.
Recently unveiled ahead of hitting Japanese showrooms next April, the Toyota FCV (fuel-cell vehicle) has been introduced at the Aspen Ideas Festival in Colorado. The car’s aerodynamic styling won’t be to everyone’s liking, but what’s most important is what’s happening underneath. The self-proclaimed “car of the future” comes powered by hydrogen, boasts a driving range similar to a gasoline-engined car (around 300 miles), refuels in three minutes, and emits nothing but clean water vapor.
After going on sale in Japan, the Toyota FCV will go on sale in Europe and North America next summer. Toyota says that pricing will start at seven million yen, or about £40,450. Europe and USA prices haven’t been decided just yet.
