TRAVERSE CITY -- Toyota plans to sell a fuel cell vehicle in 2015, which would make it a leader in a technology that most other automakers regard as about 10 years from being marketable.
Toyota is sticking to its timetable of selling a fuel cell sedan in three years, said Justin Ward, advanced powertrain program manager at the Toyota Technical Center in Ann Arbor.
Initially, it likely will be sold in California, which plans to have 68 hydrogen fueling stations by the end of 2015, Ward said at the Center for Automotive Research Management Briefing Seminars. Michigan has not made a similar commitment.
Ward said the fuel cell car will be available for both retail and commercial sale.
Honda has sold a few hundred of its FCX Clarity fuel cell-electric cars since 2008, mostly in California.
Executives from Ford, General Motors, Chrysler and Volkswagen see fuel cell vehicles as being further out and most have not said when they will have vehicles on the market.
