Whether working with BMW
or the US Department of Energy
is involved in hydrogen vehicle
technology around the world. The newest corner is London
, where a deal with the London Hydrogen Partnership (LHP) was just announced. Toyota is the only major automaker on the LHP's list of members
, but AutoblogGreen
readers will likely be familiar with some of the other participants, including Riversimple
and Transport for London.
THe LHP has an action plan (PDF
) that states, "London will be one of the early commercial launch markets for hydrogen fuel cell
electric vehicles from 2015. This will lead to London becoming a competitive global centre for hydrogen fuel cell transport and refuelling infrastructure." The LHP was started in 2002.
Outside of the LHP, Toyota's stated goal is to release an H2
vehicle that costs around $50,000
