Toyota 2015 fuel-cell car gets ambitious price as eco-tech matures
Slash Gear
Toyota has announced that it plans to launch a fuel cell powered vehicle in 2015. Research in the fuel-cell vehicles has been going on for years for many of the major automotive manufacturers. However, the technology faced some serious challenges before it was ready to come to market. Fuel-cell powered vehicles use hydrogen as fuel. The cost to produce the fuel cell vehicles coming in 2015 is predicted to be around $50,000. That would mean buyers can expect to see sticker prices of under $100,000.

University adds two fuel cell buses to fleet
The University of Delaware Review
Students can expect to board two additional zero-emissions, sound-free buses within the next year as the university's fuel cell program continues to expand according to engineering professor Ajay Prasad. The university already has two fuel cell buses in its fleet. Due to the addition of the new buses, recharging stations will be installed on the Science Technology and Research campus so the need travel five miles away to recharge will be eliminated, Prasad said.
