Toyota Motor Corp. and Hyundai Motor Co. have announced plans to start selling hydrogen fuel-cell passenger cars in China later this year, albeit on a small scale.

The auto giants’ plans mark a turning point for the Chinese hydrogen fuel-cell electric vehicle (FCEV) sector, which has so far mostly comprised commercial trucks, public buses and tractors.

Toyota will begin exporting its MIRAI series of FCEVs to China later this year, its China branch announced Monday. Its Chinese joint-venture GAC Toyota Motor Co. Ltd. will be responsible of selling a first batch of 50 cars.
