9. Battery fanatics have tried to paint Toyota's latest move into lithium

as if they are going to abandon fuel cell vehicles.

NOTHING could be further from the truth. But cult members are resestant to anything that goes against their "beliefs".

Toyota to produce battery electric vehicles - fuel cell hydrogen cars still alive

Fully electric cars (BEV) to be developed, but at the moment small short distance transport envisaged.

Toyota still indicates that for heavy transport and long distance personal transport, hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (FCV) favoured.

Toyota's approach to environmental technology
Making eco-cars that lead the way to tomorrow

A Cult member types the following:

Toyota is (finally) rolling out a series hybrid like the Volt.

They're years behind the times, but the direction of the market towards lithium+ is clear and they are following.

Hydrogen is only one thing - a nonstarter.


Observe- the cult member claims Toyota is "behind the times" ROFL

They PIONEERED today's electric cars. They aren't following anyone - they are true leaders. Then, the cult member goes on to call H2 "a nonstarter".

That's big news to Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, BMW and Mercedes.

I really don't understand at all this hatred of fuel cells from battery cult members. Fuel cell advocates are for anything that will help break the fossil fuel addiction. Battery Cultists hate hydrogen and fuel cells and many of them want the tech to be suppressed and disappear. THEY CAN"T HANDLE COMPETETION! Maybe it's just that simple.

Who cares anyway. Japan and Germany are so far out in front of this tech the US will probably never catch up. We can all (partly) thank Steven Chu and Obama for that because of what they did in 2009.
