DETROIT -- I spoke with Jana Hartline, Manager, Environmental Communications regarding the Toyota FVC-R Concept. This vehicle is based on the highlander platform. It is an all electric vehicle and utilizes the same core hybrid synergy drive technology as the Toyota Prius. It is powered by hydrogen gas that feeds into the fuel cell stack, which separates each electron and creates electricity. There is a back-up battery.

The range is 350-400 miles per fill. Most hydrogen gas stations are in California and on the east coast in Connecticut. It takes five minutes to fill it up, just like regular gas, but with hydrogen gas.

The difference between a fuel cell and a battery is the massive amount of range you get with a fuel cell. "To date, we have improved the quality of the fuel cell stack," Hartline said. To put it simply, it recharges while you are driving at all speeds.

There are no production plans and no price at this point. However The FVC-R will be on the market in 2015. Toyota has had fuel cells on the road already since 2003.

"We are also moving towards future safety technology in our vehicles," the manager of environmental communications added.
