In addition to the plug-in series hybrid version of the Swift subcompact hatchback that Suzuki will display at the upcoming Tokyo Motor Show, the Japanese company will also be bringing along three separate concepts powered by fuel cells.

Suzuki wants to move more than just drivers with hydrogen fuel cells. The automaker is working to develop a wheelchair that moves on electricity, which is produced in a fuel cell from methanol. The Suzuki Mio can operate for about 25 miles on a four-liter tank. The fuel cell uses the methanol to create hydrogen and electricity, and Li-ion batteries save up what isn't used right away.
