According to a recent article on Autocar.co.uk, BMW is set to employ a "revised version of the hydrogen-electric fuel cell system used in the Toyota FCV in a future i-brand model"

Quote:
Company sources say the race is on between the German car makers to get a hydrogen fuel cell car on the market, now that Japanese companies Honda and Toyota have taken the initiative.

The powertrain sharing is the first stage of a BMW-Toyota joint venture aimed at lowering development costs and providing improved economies of scale on advanced alternative drive systems shared between the two manufacturers. A second project, to build a rear-drive sports car platform, is also said to be well under way.
