Toyota Fuel Cell Hybrid In The Lead (Apparently)

Media coverage we've seen is confusing as to whether the Toyota FCHV-6 is a pure play fuel cell or a hybrid fuel cell vehicle. We'll assume hybrid, as it would be logical to leverage their current front runner position in hybrid tech. Check out HydrogenCars blog for more details. "Toyota Motor Corp said on Friday its improved FCHV zero-emission fuel-cell car completed a road test from Osaka to Tokyo, covering 560 km (350 miles), on a single tank of hydrogen."

"The latest version of the FCHV features a high-pressure tank of 70Mpa that can store double the amount of hydrogen as its previous fuel tank, increasing its cruising range. Two cars were tested and both completed the trip, the automaker said."
