Lexus believes the solutions to energy and emissions issues offered by the fuel cell vehicle make it the closest technology yet to the ultimate eco-car, with hydrogen providing an ideal, ultra-clean source of energy.

A hydrogen fuel cell achieves outstanding energy efficiency – about twice that available from current generation petrol and diesel engines – and emits only water, producing zero CO2, NOx and particulates. It not only saves energy and drives down costs, it also offers the convenience of a long driving range from a tank of fuel and a fill-up process that takes only about as long as for a conventionally powered vehicle.
