BMW sources have told Auto Express the Bavarian marque will be launching a hydrogen vehicle by the end of the decade.

Hot on the heels of yesterday's rumored Le Mans comeback with a hydrogen-powered racecar, British media is speculating BMW is also working on a road-legal production car likely to be sold under the “i” brand by 2020. The vehicle is apparently being developed in collaboration with Toyota as a result of the partnership between the two signed in early 2013 to work on hydrogen fuel cell technology, specifically on hydrogen tanks, fuel cell stacks, motors and batteries.

A source inside BMW says there will not be a production hydrogen based on the first generation of the technology as the company will wait until the tech will evolve into a second gen which will be more feasible for a road-going car and this is why they are currently targeting a 2020 market launch.
