Toyota to produce hydrogen car by 2015

Toyota iQ fq

Toyota boss Akio Toyoda recently announced that his engineers are making serious progress towards building the company’s first hydrogen powered car. If progress for the first hydrogen powered Toyota stays on track it should have its market debut by year 2015. Currently, the only manufacturer to offer a hydrogen powered car is BMW with its 7 Series.

Apart from the hydrogen Toyota model, Akio Toyoda also said the Toyota iQ will be available as a full electric vehicle by year 2012. By that same year, the company will also make available a Plug-in Hybrid version of its success story Toyota Prius.

The future Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid and the Toyota iQ electric are set to use Ni-mh batteries, rather than the currently widely spread Li-Ion ones. The Japanese company has been forced into making this change because the current demand for Li-Ion batteries exceeds its overall production capacity.
