Toyota continues to test its FCHV (fuel-cell hybrid vehicles); I would like to see one and drive one in real-life. As I understand these cars are on lease to 2 CA state universities. Here's a quote from Toyota's press release:

September 24, 2003 -- Sonoma, CA -- Toyota's commitment to gaining real-world experience for its Fuel Cell Hydrogen Vehicles (FCHV) took another step forward today when it was announced that two more vehicles would be put into action with the assistance of the University of California, Irvine and the University of California, Davis.
The FCHVs will be leased by UC Irvine's National Fuel Cell Research Center (http://www.nfcrc.uci.edu) and by UC Davis' Institute of Transportation Studies (http://its.ucdavis.edu). These will be the second Toyota fuel cell vehicles for each of the schools. Since the first wave of vehicles was announced in December 2002, the two FCHVs have logged nearly 6,000 miles.
The new FCHVs have been improved for U.S. use, including left-hand drive operation, improved braking performance and a new navigation system.
