Toyota Fuel Cell Concept Debut
TORRANCE, Calif., (Dec. 18, 2013) – Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., will debut the FCV, a sedan based fuel cell vehicle, at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The reveal will feature the North America debut of the concept vehicle as well as an introduction to the fuel cell “test mule”, which logged thousands of miles during rigorous quality and durability testing on U.S. roadways. Toyota’s news conference will be held Monday, January 6 at 1:00 PM at the Mandalay Bay Conference Center.
According to fueleconomy.gov “Fuel cell vehicles (FCVs) have the potential to significantly reduce our dependence on foreign oil and lower harmful emissions that contribute to climate change. FCVs run on hydrogen gas rather than gasoline and emit no harmful tailpipe emissions. Several challenges must be overcome before these vehicles will be competitive with conventional vehicles, but the potential benefits of this technology are substantial.”
At Anderson Toyota we are always looking forward to and anticipating the latest in new vehicle production. Toyota has been a leader in the world of hybrid technology, and fuel cell technology is the next logical step in responsible and earth friendly design.
