This is the final design of the 2015 Toyota Fuel Cell Sedan

Article by Christian A., on June 25, 2014

Toyota unveiled today the final design of its 2015 Fuel Cell Sedan and honestly to tell you we are quite impressed as the new vehicle looks identical to the concept version, the FCV. The company will first introduce the four-door saloon in Japan, in April 2015, while in summer 2015 this model will arrive in Europe and North America.

In Japan, it will carry a price tag of approximately seven million yen (around $69,000 / 50,000 euros / £40,450). At the beginning, sales will be limited in the regions where a hydrogen-refuelling infrastructure is under development.

For those who don’t know, Toyota has been developing fuel cell vehicles for more than 20 years, but the new Fuel Cell Sedan promises to deliver performance and a cruising range similar to the models powered by petrol engines.

Refuelling this vehicle takes approximately three minutes, while the tailpipe emissions are only water vapours as the Fuel Cell Sedan emits no carbon dioxide or substances harmful to the environment.

Karl Schlicht, Executive Vice President Toyota Motor Europe, said: “We are very excited by the arrival of fuel cell technology. Of course there are many challenges ahead, such as the availability of fuelling infrastructure and customer awareness. But our history with hybrid gives us all the experience we need to bring a new technology to the market." “In Europe we will be taking it step by step, gradually introducing the car in selected markets. But we are confident that hydrogen will become increasingly popular as a way of powering vehicles.” [source: Toyota]
