Toyota, Nissan and Honda Agree on Details of Joint Support for Hydrogen Infrastructure Development

Toyota Motor Corporation, Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., and Honda Motor Co., Ltd. have agreed on key details regarding a new joint support project for the development of hydrogen station infrastructure in Japan. Additionally to partially covering the operating costs of hydrogen stations, the three automakers have also agreed to help infrastructure companies deliver the best possible customer service and create a convenient, hassle-free refueling network for owners of fuel cell vehicles (FCVs).

The joint project* will partially cover hydrogen station operating expenses incurred by infrastructure companies, and was first announced on February 12th. Furthermore, project partners will jointly raise awareness regarding these support measures, in order to encourage new companies to enter the hydrogen supply business. Financial assistance will be provided through the Research Association of Hydrogen Supply/Utilization Technology (HySUT), which is setting up a project to stimulate demand for FCVs.

The Toyota Mirai

Toyota launched the Mirai FCV in late 2014, while Honda has announced its plan to bring an FCV to market before April 2016. Nissan is also planning to market an FCV as early as 2017.
