Report: Toyota’s North American CEO says hydrogen fuel-cell tech is the future

Toyota of North America’s CEO, Jum Lentz, recently shared his sentiments about future propulsion technology for automobiles at a press conference recently. And it doesn’t exactly involve EV technology of today.

Instead, Lentz openly stated that Toyota will instead continue their path of researching hybridization, except with hydrogen fuel technology. Lentz himself questioned the long-range ability of EVs and not to mention, the slow process required to recharge batteries. As a result, he believes “there are better alternatives, such as hybrids, plug-in hybrids, and tomorrow with fuel cells.”

This news comes in after Toyota and Tesla recently ended their agreement involving the sharing of battery technology. Now that this relationship is caput, Toyota apparently can now focus on the development of fuel cell technology. And of course, the inherent benefits of hydrogen fuel cell technology include the facts that hydrogen is renewable, the most abundant and combustible element known to us, and the byproduct of the combustion process of hydrogen–adding or infusing oxygen molecules–is known to us simply as water.
