Toyota wants to be the clear leader in a technology most other automakers see as being about 10 years from market-ready. After all, Toyota became a hybrid leader and continues its success today with 4 models under the Prius brand.
What is Toyota readying for market? What do other automakers say?
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.
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.
