Kyodo. Toyota is recalling 14 fuel-cell vehicles leased in Japan and the US after one of them was found leaking hydrogen from its fuel tank in late August.
The hydrogen leak was discovered in a vehicle leased to a US university. Toyota decided to recall the 14 units of the older FCHV model to “take all possible measures” to prevent any malfunctioning.
The recall for repairs covers the Toyota FCHV vehicles whose lease contracts took effect between 2002 and June this year.
So far, Toyota has had three recalls on fuel-cell vehicles.
