CES 2014: Toyota shows off cell car that can also a home

Motor Corp. released new on its fuel cell car Monday at the Electronics Show in Las Vegas including plans for an adapter the car to power your home.

The chose the big tech gathering to the four-seater, which looks a futuristic Prius, to highlight its engineering. A fully-fueled vehicle be able to supply enough to power a house for a week in an Toyota said. Its engineers are on an adapter that will the car into a home’s electrical

After debuting the concept car at the Motor Show in November, plans to start selling the car in the States next year. it has yet to disclose pricing, the company it has slashed the cost of bringing the car to by tapping an electric powertrain it uses on one of its hybrid vehicles and common parts.

“Fuel electric vehicles will be in our sooner than many believe, and in much greater than anyone expected,” Bob Carter, senior vice of automotive operations for Toyota’s sales arm.

Toyota is one of companies pushing forward fuel cell vehicle Hyundai will start one later this year and plans one next year.

Fuel cells use hydrogen to the electricity that powers the Most global automakers they represent the best to building the zero-emission vehicles now by regulators in California and many states.

But not every automaker is

At the Los Angeles Auto Show last year, former of America Chief Executive Browning said the company to produce a battery-powered Golf that it displayed at the show than a fuel-cell car for one simple Most people know to find a socket, he said. Not too people know where to a hydrogen fueling station.

is still a long way off from commercial vehicles,” Browning

However, California’s stringent regulations require that 15% of the new sold in the state by 2025 be vehicles, which at this are either electric or hydrogen-powered Nine more states adopted the same sales with a target of having 3.3 zero-emission vehicles on the road by

That rapid adoption is behind the automakers’ efforts to hydrogen autos to the U.S. now.

Using hydrogen to electricity, fuel cells the best of electric and gasoline without the downsides, the automakers They drive like cars — quietly, tons of off-the-line power but can be refueled just like cars.

“We are real about this technology,” Ed LaRocque, Toyota’s national manager for fuel cell We think it is game-changing.

The Toyota model will 100 kilowatts of power, which is equal to 134 horsepower, the same as a It will have a zero-to-60 per hour time at about 10 and possibly less, and a range of 300

LaRocque said that range will be key to the success of cell vehicles. It is about times what’s offered in all the cars on the market now, the exception of Tesla’s Model S.

offering will be a hydrogen of its Tucson sport utility and will be built on the same Korean assembly line as the model of the small SUV. It be offered starting next on a special lease deal includes all the hydrogen a driver can use as as maintenance.

Honda’s will be a still-to-be-named version of the Clarity fuel vehicle it has been testing in for several years now. the Toyota model, it is expected to hit next year.

For now, are few places to fuel the cars, three stations are spaced the busy 405 Freeway in Torrance, Valley and Irvine, and there are similar clusters on the East

“The number of fueling is a big challenge for the entire industry,” said.

But California has approved than $200 million in to build about 20 new stations by a total of 40 by 2016, and as many as 100 by The state plans to build in clusters in metropolitan areas some satellite stations on to connect the clusters.

Toyota actually displayed two cell cars at the big electronics Besides the prototype, it showed a engineering prototype that its called “the mule.” It was for extensive testing in North for more than a year.
