free patents: Toyota fuel cell vs Tesla electric

After Tesla Motors Inc, Now Toyota Opens Patents 
"Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) released its patents to the world last year, and now it seems like Toyota has taken a cue from the Palo Alto-based EV manufacturer. At the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas on Monday, Toyota announced that it is also opening its technology to spur hydrogen fuel cell adoption."

“And then they’ll say certain technologies like fuel cell … oh god … fuel cell is so bullshit. Except in a rocket," said Musk. More specifically, Musk said that even the best hydrogen fuel cell technology doesn't compare to the energy density of lithium-ion batteries, such as that found in Tesla's Model S."
