In the of the auto industry collapse in Toyota made a move many industry watchers It partnered with electric maker Tesla to incorporate its technology into future cars and SUVs. Tesla was success in a very niche with its Tesla Roadster, so it like a safe bet for the Japanese to bring it to the mainstream. Four and one spectacularly failed vehicle Toyota is throwing in the towel on electric vehicles in favor of fuel cells.

Tesla is the brainchild of Elon now equally famous for his private firm SpaceX. With the this was the first auto to make an electric vehicle didn’t drive like a cart, but it was also hugely Toyota wanted to get its hands on electric powertrain technology for use in its and it started with an all-electric SUV. Unfortunately, Toyota hardly even give things away.

Tesla has in regulatory filings that the deal is coming to an end, but is keeping its 3% stake in Tesla for the being. Toyota’s new vision for cars goes back to a that was all the rage a few years ago — fuel cells .

Tesla is particularly fond of out how far you can drive one of its cars if you carefully your trip to take of existing Supercharger stations. if you don’t have a nearby EV and the only power around is a 110v socket, you can still your EV — it just might 8 hours. They don’t build houses with hot and running hydrogen.

A hydrogen fuel cell (FCV) filling up

Toyota is working on hydrogen refueling that would support its cell vehicles (FCVs), but unclear where all that is going to come from. being the most common in the universe, pure hydrogen is not easy to come by on Earth. The common method of producing involves stripping it off hydrocarbons methane and gasoline through a called steam reforming. doesn’t do much to reduce our on fossil fuels, but other like bioreactors and water are far from efficient enough for scale production.

Tesla is preparing to launch its own crossover SUV next year, the Tesla Model X. Toyota is to unveil a new 4-door sedan in the US year that relies on hydrogen fuel cells for It’s going to be an interesting
