- Any word on the price?
Will it be sold throughout the U. S. as opposed to select markets?
Saw in a link from the article, BYD is launching it's electric vehicle during the same expo, the International Electric Vehicle Expo.
Same questions regarding BYD electric vehicle. Price? Availability?Oct 12, 2015
- Dan CarOwner+3Since it won't have as much range as the Bolt I expect it to be priced slightly less. I'll guess $36K. Probably will only be sold initially in CARB states and then slowly rolled out to more states like the Kia Soul EV.Oct 12, 2015
- Read it and finally someone will put Toyota in there place and tell them they need to stop ignoring this, hydrogen fuel-cells will never work.Oct 16, 2015
- While I believe Toyota is making a grave mistake focusing on hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, I welcome them to try.
The only way we can be sure hydrogen fuel cells will not work at this point in time is if the attempt is made.
To argue it will never work is going too far. It might work a thousand years from now as technology advances.
I wonder where electric cars would be if we didn't have batteries developed for laptops. I believe we needed the lithium battery technology to advance. I'm hopeful and I believe there is still much advancement possible in battery technology.
If Toyota goes bankrupt as a result of their choice to focus on hydrogen fuel cell, we will know now is not the time for hydrogen fuel cell.
I do believe now is not the time. The costs involved in producing the hydrogen, compressing the hydrogen, containing the hydrogen seem to be significant. The maintenance issues with a hydrogen fuel cell vehicle seem to be significant. One will note every comment I make against hydrogen fuel cell vehicles is cost related. I have the impression there is much energy inefficiency producing the hydrogen which, I believe, would add to societal costs of using hydrogen fuel cells.
It doesn't mean, a thousand years from now all these problems with hydrogen fuel cells will still be problems.Oct 16, 2015
- Dan CarOwnerI like the idiom: fool cells. :)Oct 16, 2015
- I do think the amount of financial support for the fuel cell is unheard of. If the EV's had that kind of support from the beginning, there would quick charge stations everywhere.Oct 18, 2015
