Toyota’s hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle will make its debut at the 2013 Tokyo Motor Show prior to going on sale as a 2015 model later next year.

While hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles haven’t exactly garnered a ton of favorable attention in recent years, Toyota is hoping to defy skeptics much like it did when the Japanese automaker first debuted the Prius hybrid. But it’ll be an uphill battle for Toyota, especially when Tesla CEO Elon Musk believes “fuel cells should be renamed ‘fool cells,’ they are so stupid.”

The automaker hasn’t revealed many details on its hydrogen fuel-cell vehicle, other than the fact that it’ll be sold as a Lexus model in America and will be priced around $50,000. Toyota wants to stay competitive against the successful Tesla Model S, and estimates that it will go about 300 miles per fueling.
