Toyota will be launching Mirai hydrogen car soon in California.
Toyota sees great potential in hydrogen and fuel cell vehicles. For the moment there are only a handful of hydrogen stations up and running in the Golden State. California Fuel Cell Partnership has plans for 40 stations to operate by the end of 2016 and 100 by 2020. The state of California is spending about $20 million a year on the project.
The Japanese automaker expects to sell 3,000 units in the US by the end of 2017. The figures are much more modest in Europe. Toyota will offer the sedan for sale in: Britain, Denmark, Belgium and Germany. These are the only countries with existing or planned hydrogen refueling infrastructure.
