PostTV’s Zoeann Murphy was on hand as Toyota demonstrated its hydrogen fuel cell-powered sedan at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

Toyota on Monday announced plans to begin selling the cars in the United States in 2015, focusing first on California. The car, called FCV, will have a range of 300 miles and can go from zero to 60 mph in 10 seconds. Fueling the hydrogen tank will take three to five minutes, and one tank will last 300 miles.

The vehicles will cost between $50,000-$100,000.

Wonkblog’s Brad Plumer laid out the reasons for Toyota’s emphasis on hydrogen-fueled vehicles, even as many auto companies are betting on electric cars. Dominic Basulto summed up the debate between electric and hydrogen powered vehicles here on Innovations
