Toyota on announced that it plans to selling electric vehicles by hydrogen fuel cells by

The car maker showcased two demo vehicles (FCVs) on the first day of the Electronics Show in Las Vegas, a blue four-door sedan looked like it could on a showroom floor immediately, and a engineering prototype, which said it has been using the past year to conduct and extreme on-road testing in America.

The test vehicle has a range of approximately 300 miles and zero-to-60 in about 10 seconds, said. It is about as green as you can with emissions consisting of water vapor. Best of for those sitting on the fence getting an electric vehicles that can take hours to up#151;the Toyota FCV prototype’s tanks can be refueled in three to minutes, according to the car maker.

Getting the of manufacturing an FCV down has been key to production models on the road and now is banking on doing just by next year.

But just as vehicle maker Tesla has overtime to build out its fast-charging stations in key regions, Toyota it will need to construct a of hydrogen fueling stations to ownership of its upcoming FCV a viable for consumers.

Tesla initially built up its network in California and along the seaboard, with the Elon company now working on extending its infrastructure reach throughout the States. Tesla is also with battery swapping to up the recharging process even

Toyota will also focus on California, Carter and is currently working with the of California at Irvine’s Advanced and Energy Program (APEP) to map out potential locations for new hydrogen stations.

APEP’s plans are on the idea that FCV owners want fueling stations six minutes of their homes. The has produced a model that for 68 total stations to be spread out in the San Bay Area and Silicon Valley, as as in Los Angeles, Orange, and San Diego Toyota said.

Such a network would 10,000 vehicles, according to

Toyota is banking on the state of taking on a lot of the cost of building out all stations. The state is committed to $200 million on 20 new hydrogen stations by 2015, 40 by 2016, and up to 100 by Toyota noted.

Stay tuned, because infrastructure thing is going to Carter said.
