Japan has introduced a train with fuel cells (cells that convert chemical energy into electricity) and rechargeable batteries. According to Japanese media, the Hybari train was jointly developed by J. Arist, Hitachi Limited, and Toyota Motor Corporation. JR East has decided to launch this hybrid technology for general use by 2030. Meanwhile, the company will test the train on the JR Soromi and Nambo railway lines.
