How do our Fuel Cell test vehicles handle extreme cold? @cafcp found out:

“We have 10 of the Toyotas in service here and they continue to be driven and fueled, despite the extreme conditions. We had another snow storm Tuesday night and this morning the temperature was 3 degrees. I went out to my Toyota FCEV and brushed off a foot of snow before starting the car right up. No problem. The heater worked great and the vehicle performed flawlessly. Fueling the car was no problem. Even in the very cold temperatures, the tank fills in just a few minutes. I continue to get range of about 300 miles despite the cold and blasting heater. The bus, which uses a fuel cell and batteries, continues to run and fuel as well.“
