Honda, Toyota to let consumers join the fuel cell party

Honda's fuel cell cars are currently offered to municipalities and corporate customers through leasing.

TOKYO -- Honda and Toyota plan to bring fuel cell vehicles to the consumer market next year, with each scaling up production of the ultimate eco-cars to an annual 1,000 units.

     Fuel cell vehicles boast longer ranges than electric cars and zero emissions. But the two automakers now offer them on a for-lease basis, with users centering on municipalities and businesses. Initial prices will be  set below 10 million yen ($96,890), and ownership is expected to spread among individuals.
