Talk of hydrogen-powered fuel cell cars has been going on for decades without any increase in the number of cars being produced, but several recent announcements indicate alternative fuel technology is in America's future.

This past week, Toyota Chairman Takeshi Uchiyamada said the automaker is moving forward with its commitment to produce a fuel cell electric sedan for sale in the United States in 2015. He made the comment to reporters after a speech at the Economic Club of Washington D.C., according to the industry publication Automotive News.

Never happen on a wide scale. The Government could not keep track of it.

This has been talked about for so long that one wonders when it will actually be in production.

I am interested - both in hydrogen and in natural gas. The issue is refueling, and that takes commitment to building infrastructure. Natural Gas has the edge, because much of the infrastructure is already in place.

I never thought hydrogen fuel cell vehicles would come to fruition in my lifetime. This is just completely awesome!
