CES 2014: Toyota says fuel-cell car has 310-mile range

LAS VEGAS — The hydrogen-powered car is back, and this one is wearing a Toyota badge.

After its initial debut at the Tokyo Motor Show in November, the hydrogen fuel cell-powered Toyota FCV for fuel cell vehicle — the production model will get a new name— made its first U.S. appearance at Consumer Electronics Show here. Along with the car, Toyota brought news about the nation’s nascent hydrogen infrastructure.

Even though hydrogen has gained a reputation as a technology that’s been just around the corner for decades, Bob Carter, Toyota senior vice president, told the crowd that the FCV is “really going to change our world, sooner rather than later.”

This is the first U.S. look at the Toyota, which was announced also at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November but shown only in Tokyo. Toyota is among the makers that have suddenly gotten serious about hydrogen fuel cells, a technology that seemed to have gotten lost amid the hoopla about plug-in electric power and batteries.
