Most major manufacturers are planning fuel cell vehicle rollouts in limited production numbers in 2015, including Toyota, Honda, and possibly General Motors. Hyundai announced last year that it would up the competition by putting their fuel cell vehicle into production by 2013.

The Korean automaker plans to roll out the first thousand hydrogen fuel cell vehicles (HFCV) late this year for 2013 release. Most of these will not be put on the road in Korea or North America, but in Europe, where hydrogen has a much higher level of acceptance.
