A big selling point for hydrogen electric vehicles is their fast fueling. Toyota, which has seized the hydrogen fuel cell vehicle commercialization lead with its Mirai (already on sale in Japan) is planning to offer “free fuel to our first customers,” Toyota Motor Sales fuel cell vehicles brand manager Ed LaRocque told ShowTimes.

Details are still being worked out, as U.S. sales of the Mirai don’t begin until October. Toyota (Booth 1137) named eight Northern and Southern California dealerships that will handle the vehicle. Toyota is working with FirstElement Fuel on a California fueling station network.

Air Liquide, exhibiting here across the aisle from Toyota at Booth 1036, is to build twelve 700-bar fueling stations in five states along the New York to Boston corridor: New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticut and Rhode Island. First stations are to come online in early 2016.
