Toyota to Shed More Light on its Fuel Cell Development Soon

With people out there claiming fuel cell vehicles won’t actually lower carbon emissions that much because the hydrogen extraction process will pretty much balance the scales back, Toyota laughs in the face of critics and will actually organize a briefing to inform the media about its FCV progress.

On June 25th, starting at 14.00 (JST), Toyota Motor Corporation said to hold a media briefing in Tokyo regarding its fuel cell vehicle development. The media will also be live casted over the internet with English subtitles.

We’re not sure if Toyota felt the need to explain itself in front of the growing number of people considering fuel cell technology a fiasco or if it’s simply going to tell us the FCV will arrive later than scheduled, but either way, it will have something worth listening to.

The Toyota FCV is said to enter production this December, promising to offer the best green motoring alternative. It’s still an electric car at its base, but instead of having to charge the batteries for a few hours, the FCV combines hydrogen with oxygen using a fuel cell to create electricity and water as the only thing coming out the back.

Refilling the tanks will take around 3 minutes and after that you can go as far as around 300 miles (483 km). Way better that with any other current EV. Moreover, Toyota insists that hydrogen can be produced using sustainable energy sources such as solar and wind power, thus labeling the FCV as a promising ecologic vehicle of the future.
