Toyota has started selling its first commercial hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle in Japan.  These cars are not cheap (est. price $62,000) and only slated for late 2015 availability in the USA.  Outside of California and Washington State, lots of hydrogen gas stations will still have to be constructed.  Also, says Bloomberg Businessweek : ‘The auto industry has already sunk serious money into hybrids, plug-in electrics, and advanced batteries in the expectation that these technologies will dominate in the post-gasoline era, whenever that may be’.
