Washington DC March 26, 2014; The AIADA newsletter reported that Honda Motor Co. and Toyota Motor Corp. plan to launch fuel cell vehicles in the consumer market in 2015, with each producing about 1,000 units a year, according to Automotive News.

Initial prices of these zero-emission vehicles, which cover longer distances than electric cars, will set below 10 million yen ($97,700). Honda is developing a sedan that it plans to roll out as early as November 2015, which will be able to travel about 310 miles on a single charge – twice the range of an electric vehicle, the Nikkei reported.

Honda intends to churn out 5,000 units over five years, selling them in Japan, the United States, and Europe.
