Report: Toyota’s production hydrogen-fuel cell vehicle to produce 136hp

Bloomberg reports Toyota’s much-anticpated production hydrogen-fuel cell vehicle, due in 2015, will have 136hp, all of which propel the car forward while just producing water vapor from the tailpipe—no harmful greenhouse gases.

The hydrogen-fuel cell car was previewed in the form of the FCV-R Concept, with the production version debuting at the Tokyo Motor Show this year. It will ride on the same platform as the Lexus HS 250h.

The car’s tank capacity will be 11 pounds of compress hydrogen, which translates into a traveling distance of up to 311 miles on a single fill-up. And just like a normal gasoline powered car, filling from empty just takes three minutes.

Details were sparse, but a price is expected to hover around $50,000 as part of plans to sell tens of thousands of hydrogen vehicles by 2020.
