Toyota's Hydrogen Fuel Cell Car Ready to Fail Miserably in 2015

By Gary Cutlack on at

This is the car currently known as the Toyota Fuel Cell Vehicle. It's the first production hydrogen-powered car, set to launch in Japan by April 2015 and around other parts of the world by later next summer. But does your local ASDA have a hydrogen pump? Probably not.

The Fuel Cell Vehicle has been given a Japanese RRP of around £40,000, which isn't a disastrously high price for a piece of sci-fi motoring history. But with current electric car sales remaining low despite mass government subsidy and plenty of charging spots popping up, surely the last thing motorists want is another eco option without any of the necessary infrastructure in place to make it actually workable?
