Whoa! Toyota fuel-cell car has 310 mile range


The Toyota Fuel Cell Vehicle debuts in the US at CES. They will be available commercially in 2015. Other car manufacturers promise similar fuel-cell cars. Fuel cells run on hydrogen and are zero emission. The generally accepted view that fuel-cell vehicles were dead appears to be completely wrong! Good.

The Toyota FCV promises a 310 mile range between hydrogen fill-ups, room for four passengers, and a refuel time of just three minutes. Unlike a plug-in electric vehicle, there’s no waiting for a battery to recharge. Promised top speed is over 100 mph, and zero-to 60-mile-per-hour times are about 10 seconds.
