vehicles shared the stage at the Toyota press conference: The FCV concept,
showing what the four-door mid-size sedan will look like in Radiant Blue; and
the camouflage-taped engineering prototype used for extensive and extreme

what WE can to help kick-start the construction of convenient hydrogen
refueling infrastructure. We’re doing a
good job with both and we will launch in 2015.”
