CNET's live coverage of Toyota's CES 2014 press conference

Fuel cell vehicles combine pure hydrogen with air to create water, a reaction that also produces electricity. The fuel cell channels the electricity to a drive motor, powering the car.

Many automakers had active fuel cell research programs a decade ago, but their efforts went quiet as battery electric vehicles became the rage.

Toyota is taking a different tact than other automakers, which are expected to talk about safety and infotainment services enabled by connecting the vehicle to a cellular connection.

As usual, we'll be using ScribbleLive to bring you live text and photos, blow by blow. We'll start the live blog about 15 minutes before Toyota officially starts the event, so be sure to tune in.
