Toyota is using an adapted Toyota Fuel Cell System (TFCS) system—as seen in the Mirai car—for a new fleet of buses that will be sold in Japan beginning early next year.

National Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Day (October 8) is just concluded, and the Energy Department and trade association are celebrating with a new push to install stations in the Northeast.

Canton, Ohio—home of the Pro Football Hall of Fame—is taking a big step forward with a hydrogen-powered 10-bus fleet.

Volkswagen said it is “accelerating certain key development activities” and also stepping up the transition to series production of a fuel-cell vehicle.

With 37-inch BF Goodrich tires and 11.8 inches of ground clearance, the fuel-cell Chevy Colorado ZH2, introduced at the huge Association of the United States Army (AUSA) trade show in Washington, appears to be a cousin to the Hummers that are all over the hall.

By 2032, says Information Trends, annual fuel-cell vehicle sales will reach five million, and 20 million will have been sold, generating as much as $1.2 trillion.

General Motors developed a silent-running underwater hydrogen drone for the Navy and is unveiling, in October, a military fuel-cell pickup truck based on the midsized Chevrolet Colorado for Army testing.

Nikola is now saying that its electric drivetrain will be backed by a hydrogen fuel cell, not a natural gas tank.

Hydrogen-powered semi trucks with fuel cells on board have so far been mostly a future vision, but it remains a very viable concept.

A cradle-to-grave lifecycle study of light-duty vehicle options, which involved three U.S. automakers, four major energy companies and the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI), reported significant greenhouse-gas reductions with a fuel-cell drivetrain.
