Toyota Motor Sales in the US will begin a programme in December that will help to establish a fuel-cell hybrid-electric vehicle (FCHV) community in the state of California, linking government, education and industry, and including hydrogen refuelling companies. "The task of bringing practical fuel-cell powered vehicles to the mass market will require a considerable investment of time, resources, cooperation and patience," said TMS COO Jim Press. "This programme marks a significant first step in the right direction."
