Bob Carter, executive VP of Toyota Motor North America, said:
  • This is another important step toward building a hydrogen economy
  • Combining Toyota’s decades of experience in developing hydrogen powered fuel cell electric technology with Chevron’s deep resources in the energy sector has the potential to create new transportation choices for both consumers and businesses that move us toward our goal of carbon neutrality
The 3 main strategic priorities are of this alliance include:
  • Collaborating on hydrogen-related public policy measures that support the development of hydrogen infrastructure
  • Understanding current and future market demand for light-duty and heavy-duty fuel cell electric vehicles and supply opportunities for that demand
