     His assertion that the "hydrogen society" advocated by Toyota Motor and others will never come about could be seen as sniping at the Japanese company. Toyota, a onetime investor in Tesla, has been expending great energy developing fuel cell vehicles, and it has not taken kindly to Musk's remarks.
