Toyota to Deliver Hydrogen-Fueled Vehicle to UCI
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Feb. 24, 2004
HYDROGEN-FUELED VEHICLE DELIVERED TO UCI
The National Fuel Cell Research Center at UCI, which oversees the fuel cell program, will lease the second vehicle to Irvine-based Horiba Instruments, as it did the first one a year ago. Executives from Horiba Instruments will drive the SUV daily and provide real-world data on the functionality and capabilities of hydrogen vehicles.
The Toyota hybrid is based on the popular Toyota Highlander SUV and uses a combination of an electric motor and a hydrogen fuel cell. The only byproduct is water vapor, thus classifying the FCHV as a zero-emissions vehicle.
A ride and drive will follow the lunch to allow attendees to experience Toyota's hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
