Toyota's first car using this technology is called the Mirai — the Japanese word for future.
The car is due in the U.S. in the fall. It will cost around $50,000 and, the company said, Mirai's fuel cell can power a house for a week in case of an emergency.
As it attempts to push the world toward a hydrogen-fueled future, Toyota said that it's also hoping to find some compatriots. It will also let anyone, particularly engineers and car manufacturers, use its approximately 5,680 fuel-cell related patents — including those used in the Mirai — for free, Toyota said in a statement.
The car company says it will also build and fund the production of fueling stations, saying that it will first focus on creating that infrastructure in California and in the New York and New Jersey areas.
