"We anticipate that global demand for the new wave of zero emissionvehicles
will be significant," said Nihar Patel, Vice President, North American
Business Strategy, Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. "However, consumer access to this
new technology will be limited to the regions where infrastructure
accommodates hydrogen refueling. So far, California has made the biggest

across the nation, the infrastructure needs to expand beyond one state. This
will require close collaboration between industry stakeholders and bipartisan
support from state and federal government officials."
