Toyota has released a new video that promotes their upcoming fuel cell vehicle.

Filmed in Canada, the video shows the car undergoing cold weather testing in Yellowknife where temperatures can hit -30 degrees Celsius (-22 degrees Fahrenheit). Besides making sure the fuel cell can operate at those temperatures engineers looked for "suitability issues, drivability issues, and NVH issues."

As we have previously reported, the company's fuel cell vehicle is set to be launched in 2015. Toyota has remained coy on specifications but has previously confirmed the model can accelerate from 0-100 km/h in approximately 10 seconds and travel roughly 300 miles (482 km) on a single fill up. When the hydrogen tanks are depleted, they can be refilled in approximately three to five minutes. Speaking of the latter, it is interesting to note that there's no hydrogen refueling stations in Yellowknife so the company had to create their own makeshift station.
