According to Australian website Motoring, Toyota is working on another hydrogen-powered vehicle, even with their first hydrogen car not hitting the roads of the US.
The new vehicle will be using the same fuel system as its mid-range Mirai sedan, throwing it into the higher-end Lexus LS limousine. The new vehicle will make good use of the hydrogen fuel technology, but the Japanese auto giant will be doing some retro-fitting in order to get it working in the Lexus LS.
The new Lexus should feature a fuel cell directly under the front seat, while the hydrogen tanks will find themselves behind the back seat. The new Lexus LS vehicle should be capable of 239 miles, versus the 300 miles found on the Mirai. We don't know any details on pricing or availability, but we should see Toyota launching the hydrogen-fueled Lexus LS "by 2017."
