Toyota’s new fuel cell vehicle doubles range

Toyota has unveiled a new fuel-cell vehicle that it says more than doubles the range of the company’s existing model.

It is the car-maker’s latest bid to stay competitive in the race to develop environmentally-friendly cars.

Toyota’s five-seater FCHV van was able to travel 480 miles on a single tank of liquefied hydrogen, more than double the 200 miles achieved by its existing model, the company said in a statement.

Toyota said this may be the farthest a fuel-cell vehicle has travelled on a singe fuelling – a claim that could not be independently verified immediately.
