Toyota just announced, at the Consumer Electronics Show, a hydrogen fuel cell powered
EV.

It will be interesting to see how the effiencies match up with power plant fueled
EV's.

The first guy to build an affordable natural gas reformer for producing hydrogen
in your garage will probably make a mint!

Apparently Toyota is planning on putting hydrogen fueling stations at Toyota
dealerships, much like the charging stations found at Nissan Dealerships now.

The proposed 2015 model will have about a 300 mile range on one fill up.

I wonder if their fuel cell can function as an electolyzer, for producing
hydrogen.. a potential additional use for EV charging stations.

Looks like interesting times ahead.
