Toronto, Canada -- June 7, 2012 -- Hydrogen fuel cell cars will be hitting dealer showrooms sooner than expected. The news was announced at the World Hydrogen Energy Conference in Toronto. Representatives from Daimler AG, Honda, Hyundai and Toyota displayed some of their new fuel cell cars at the conference, and some have announced the delivery to showrooms as early as 2013, two years earlier than originally planned. 

They also confirmed that they are moving ahead with plans to rollout hydrogen fuel cell vehicles by 2015. This timeline was first announced with the signing of a letter of understanding in 2009 by all the major manufacturers. 
Some of the highlights of the industry briefing include: 
- Daimler already has 200 B-class vehicles in service with electric engines powered by hydrogen fuel cells. Three vehicles completed an around-the-world tour in 2011. Daimler will soon open a fuel cell manufacturing facility in Vancouver, British Columbia to produce fuel cell stacks for its new-generation B-Class fuel cell vehicles and the company will introduce fuel cell vehicles to the marketplace in 2014. 
- Honda has been leasing its FCX Clarity fuel cell electric vehicle to a limited number of retail consumers in Southern California since 2008. 
- Hyundai announced that during 2012 to 2015, 1,000 hydrogen fuel cell Hyundai vehicles will be on the road in the United States, Europe, and Asia. By 2015, Hyundai hopes a roomy and fully-featured fuel cell powered Hyundai SUV to be provided at an affordable 
cost. Recently, Norwegian NGO called ZERO crossed Europe with two ix35 FCEV from Oslo to Monte  Carlo using only existing hydrogen stations, showing that additional supports on the hydrogen infrastructure will allow for fuel cell vehicles to reach every corner of Europe. 
- Toyota will bring a fuel-cell sedan to market by 2015 and currently has more than 100 FCHV-adv vehicles on U.S. roads. 
- Germany and Japan have committed to the construction of hundreds of hydrogen fueling stations over the next several years.

optimization tools at their workplace.
