Green Car Reports
When it launched in the U.S. in 2000, the first-generation Toyota Prius hybrid was met with more than a little skepticism by the automotive establishment and the buying public. As with any new application of technology, it was unclear whether the Prius — and hybrid cars in general — would have a lasting impact or simply fizzle out. The Prius has obviously withstood the test of time, and company leaders expect the 2016 Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel-cell car will take a similar trajectory.

Pioneering hydrogen fuel cell station opens in West Sacramento
Sacramento Business Journal
California has a goal of having 20,000 fuel cell cars on the road by 2020 and 1.5 million zero-emission cars on the road by 2025. To make that a reality, fueling stations are needed, so now the Sacramento region has one. Ramos Oil opened the 10th hydrogen fueling station in the state with fanfare recently. The station in West Sacramento is for fuel cell cars, which convert the hydrogen to electricity to drive the car. The fuel cell cars have a longer range than pure electric cars.
