Move over hybrids and electrics. The newest alternative power cars are likely to be hydrogen-powered. At the Tokyo Motor show, Toyota debuted its fuel cell powered cars, expected to be on the market in 2015. Mercedes-Benz introduced a limited- run fuel cell car in 2010, and Toyota has been producing fuel cell cars for private fleets for a few years. But now that fueling stations are becoming more common place, and safety tests have been passed, zero emission hydrogen-powered cars will be a reality.
At the Los Angeles Auto Show this week both Honda unveiled its fuel cell car slated for a 2015 introduction, and Hyundai rolled out its hydrogen powered Tucson, a 2014 model.
