Toyota to release fuel cell electric car in US

Toyota is hoping the first commercial fuel-cell car will be a hit in the US.

It's called the Mirai, and runs on electricity generated by the chemical reaction of hydrogen and oxygen. It does not emit carbon dioxide, but rather, water.

Toyota says it has 1,500 orders for the car in Japan. It will be available in the US this fall.
