Ever think you'd see a hydrogen powered Toyota Prius at Lawrence Toyota in Lawrenceville, New Jersey? The Japanese auto maker is looking to produce "tens of Thousands" of hydrogen fueled cars by 2020, so get ready.1
Toyota already leads sales of hybrid cars, thanks to Prius models, as well as the new Plug-in variant. Toyota Europe's head of operations Didier Leroy is also introducing a Plug-in electric RAV4 and FT-Bh compressed natural gas (CNG) hybrid for 2013.
Hydrogen is relatively cheap, when compared to gasoline or diesel, and gets drivers a better range. However, the cost of implementing it in vehicles, and changing fuel stations to store it, has kept this tech unreachable, until now, thanks to Toyota. Expect to see these vehicles on dealership lots by 2015.
Mr. Leroy added that his company will test hydrogen cars in Japan, then in America and Europe.
