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
on-road testing in North America for more than a year. The prototype has consistently delivered a
driving range of about 300 miles, zero-to-sixty acceleration of about 10 seconds,
with no emissions, other than water vapor.
Refueling of its hydrogen tanks takes three to five minutes.
“Hydrogen works beautifully with oxygen to
create water and electricity and nothing more,” said Carter. “For years, the
use of hydrogen gas to power an electric vehicle has been seen by many smart
people as a foolish quest. Yes, there are significant challenges. The first is
building the vehicle at a reasonable price for many people. The second is doing
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.”
