Emission- Free Motoring
The countdown is on to bring Toyota's fuel-cell vehicle to production in 2015! Toyota started on the path to build a production fuel cell in 1992 in Japan. Now, Toyota intends to have a production fuel cell ready by 2015.
The Toyota FCV represents a major technological fuel cell achievement. Engineers were able to significantly reduce the weight and size of the fuel cell components while maintaining an impressive power output of more than 100 kW, the equivalent of 134 horsepower. A fully-fuelled vehicle could be capable of supplying enough energy to power a house for a week in an emergency. Toyota engineers are currently looking to develop an external power supply device that could be used in such a manner.
