Toyota's hydrogen concept gets low-key Detroit reception
Toyota, the automaker most closely associated with hybrids still isn't giving up on hydrogen fuel cells. Here's the FCV-R, a concept which sort of snuck into the North American International Auto Show in Detroit last week without much notice.
Part of the reason was there were far more important vehicles from Toyota there to upstage it. But the FCV-R (FCV for Fuel Cell Vehicle and the R is for "Reality and Revolution") is significant because it reminds us that Toyota is still planning to field a hydrogen-powered car by 2015. In auto-show years, that's only a couple years from now. Gulp.
Honda and General Motors have made the most noise about the benefits of hydrogen. Toyota, because of its strength in gas-saving hybrids, hasn't said much. But that could change as this car's production version is readied for marketing.
