Toyota has unveiled the production-ready hydrogen powered Fuel Cell Sedan, following the car's appearance in concept guise at last year's Tokyo Motor Show. The car will be initially launched in Japan, before next April, while preparations are in hand for launches in the U.S. and European markets in the summer of 2015.

In Japan, the Fuel Cell Sedan will be priced at approximately seven million Yen (S$85,740) and sales would initially be limited to parts of the country where a hydrogen refuelling infrastructure is under development.

Hydrogen has great potential as an alternative fuel as it can be produced from a wide variety of primary energy sources, including solar and wind power. Also it is easy to store and transport and when compressed, it has a higher energy density than batteries.

Its use can be expanded beyond automotive and domestic use, including large scale power generation.

 

The new Fuel Cell Sedan delivers performance and a cruising range similar to that of a petrol powered vehicle, with a refuelling time no longer than three minutes. However unlike contemporary cars, Toyota's Fuel Cell Sedan emits nothing but water vapour.

I personally think this is much feasible than electric vehicle.

 

The refilling is faster than charging. our daily habit will not need to change.

 

And the design is like a more muscular prius.

I think it somehow looks more like a Toyota Vios lei. Going by cosmetic alone it looks boring and uninspiring. All the newer cars seems to be going for the masculine front look, which is miles from being sleek.

Have they got a model name for it yet? Because I suggest: the Toyota FUel GLYde.

 

Toyota FUGLY, for short. :D

Its not an electric car, its Fuel Cell, which is essentially (I think) Hydrogen powered.

 

Like your T-800s from Terminator, haha!

 

Besides a 3-min refuelling time seems reasonable, no?

Design has not been Toyota's forte to begin with. They do have a bunch of good-looking cars but not necessarily across the board.

    Accord driver goes bersek and lets camera car rear end him

    After watching this clip that was spotted on SG Road Vigilante, we can't help but see the importance of being able keep our own temper in control. Losing one's temper is easy and when not kept in check, you might end up doing something you will regret in the future. Shot on the evening of 26th of September 2020 along Central Blvd, a Honda Accord can be seen in the video cutting in from the left of the camera car at high speed before slamming onto its brakes real hard. The camera car, which itself seems to be going along at quite some speed, could not stop in time and crashed into the Accord as the result. While no one can confirm the Accord driver's intention, it is almost safe to say that he just wanted to let the camera knock into him by braking hard to a stop for no reason. As it was a slight bump, no one was hurt. The Accord driver then got out calmly and proceed to take some photos. So guys, what do you reckon? Is this part of a road rage incident which the camera car's footage did not show? Or is it an insurance scam? Or is it a combination of both? Let us know in the comments below!

    Bentley slams into the rear of a Honda City, leaving many to speculate on just what the Honda driver was doing!

    Some people don't deserve to drive. Watch the video below and see whether you agree with our harsh comment or not. Posted by My Grandfather's Road, another traffic-shaming facebook page, is this video of a Honda City that almost came to a complete stop while on the first lane of the ECP.  It is unclear how long ago this accident happened as the in-car camera video dates the incident on the 27th of Dec 2019 but the post was published today, 22nd of July 2020. We have no idea why the Honda driver attempted to slow down. Could it be that he or she realised that there is an exit and wanted to turn off at the last minute?

    Cyclist thinks he has the right of way, but netizens flame him

    Now this will probably open up a can of worms or two. Who do you reckon is in the wrong? The cyclist or the driver of the Audi? Filmed by the cyclist on 5th of July along mandai road, a white Audi A1 could be seen pulling out of a small lane and into the path of a cyclist who was doing less than 30km/h on his bike. According to the source SG Road Vigilante, the guys there reckoned the car did not notice or did not care about the cyclist, barely cutting him off. What do you guys think?  Was it a close call or an error on the part of the Audi driver? Or was this a simple case of the cyclist letting his ego take control of him and not riding defensively for his own safety?

    Van lands in the bushes thanks to street racers

    Nothing new here. This is just another case of street racers causing trouble to the general road users. Shared among group chats in Whatsapp is a series of videos that show a Volkswagen Golf GTI mk5 owner being bombarded with hokkien vulgarities. No, we won't be translating what those words mean in case you are wondering... After some digging, we found out that the GTI driver who was being shouted at, and a Mitsubishi Evo X were zipping left and right through traffic along CTE on 9 Jul 2020 before causing a Toyota Hiace to crash and flip sideways into the bushes at the left side of the highway. We could see that the GTI sustained some damage to its front left hence the driver stopped. We assumed the Evo X driver did not stop and continued on its way.   This is not the first time the GTI owner has been caught driving recklessly as you can see from the video above by ROADS.sg. Of course neitzens on facebook are bashing the reckless drivers as we can see from Thelocalsociety's FB page. What are your thoughts on such drivers? Let us know!
