The car of the future may be arriving earlier then expected with Toyota's FCV. The Fuel Cell Car is set to be available on the market in 2015. The design is made to maximize oxygen intake for the fuel cell process. It is estimated to travel 300 miles (480 kilometers) per fill-up.
Instead of running on a gas engine, the Toyota FCV will run on a hydrogen fuel cell with water vapor being its most harmful emissions.
Toyota unveiled a prototype at last year's Tokyo Auto Show but offered much more detail this time around.
At this point in time, hydrogen refill stations are very sparse but this is something the automaker is working on increasing. The price for the vehicle is still under wraps, as well as the release date but Bob Carter, Toyota Motor Sales Vice President stated, "we believe we can bring it in at a very reasonable price for a lot of people."
I guess we'll just have to wait and see what the "car of the future" will be.
