Toyota Fuel Cell prototype starts cold weather testing in Canada [video]

Toyota has released a video, showing their upcoming fuel cell vehicle, cold weather testing in Yellowknife, Canada where temperatures can hit -30 degrees Celsius.

Unlike pure battery electric vehicles that can see reductions in driving range in extreme temperatures, fuel cell vehicles’ performance and range stands up to freezing temperatures.

Toyota’s fuel cell vehicle is set to be launched in 2015.

Details are limited, but the model can accelerate from 0-62mph in approximately 10 seconds and travel roughly 300 miles on a single fill up. It would take roughly three to five minutes to re-fill the hydrogen tanks.
