This is the second time I've heard that, but I see no evidence from here in Japan that they are doing anything with hydrogen these days. Can you point me to some references?

Edit: I should point out as well that they are actually building EV cars right now. They have a joint venture with several other Japan car manufacturers. They will start selling for the 2020 sales year (which I expect will start pretty soon).

They're not doing anything with hydrogen, they're just hanging onto the "hydrogen future" bluff that U.S. car companies used to kill the CARB EV mandate and have now all but abandoned.

I mean, check the tag line on Toyota's own site: https://www.toyota.com/alternative-fuel/

Hybrid. Plug-in Hybrid (yay?). Fuel Cell EV.

That's their game plan. Even then the only plug-in hybrid is the Prius, none of their other cars seem to be plug-in capable.
