Japan announces big fuel cell car push: 40,000 and 160 hydrogen stations by 2020

California is used to directing innovation in the automotive world.

There’s a different, arguably even cleaner and more sustainable way: Electric cars powered by fuel cells using sustainably produced hydrogen. That’s the way of Japan. The country is aiming to have 40,000 hydrogen-powered cars on its roads by 2020, with plans for a 20-fold expansion to 800,000 by 2030, according to a report released by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry.
