Toyota Hydrogen Car by 2015

Hydrogen-powered cars seem to become somewhat of a trend nowadays, although we admit they might represent a solution for reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. After authorities around the world decided to form hydrogen networks, more automakers are attracted to develop fuel-cell cars based on zero-emission technologies. Such an example is Toyota, the world's largest automaker who is now preparing a hydrogen powered car by 2015.

Details are obviously sketchy at this point but vice president Masatami Takimoto hinted the Japanese manufacturer is indeed working on this kind of vehicle, with a launch date sometime around 2015.

And speaking of fuel-cell vehicles, the United Kingdom today debut the UK-Hynet project whose goal is to turn the country into the clear leader when it comes to hydrogen infrastructure by 2015. This means the Japanese manufacturer Toyota could also benefit from the UK infrastructure when it will launch its very own model, so Great Britain is likely to be one of the first countries to receive the new hydrogen powered Toyota.

Renault-Nissan is one of the groups also keen on fuel-cell vehicles, with the company signing several zero-emissions partnerships across the globe to support its green efforts.

"Nissan continues to draw attention to the growth of the UK infrastructure and support for low carbon mobility – acting as a catalyst to bring together like-minded organizations including local and national government, academic institutions, regional development agencies, technology suppliers and potential end-users in order to assure a clean future for mobility in the UK," Nissan said in a release.
