Toyota Motor will share its patents on hydrogen fuel cell technology with other automakers free of charge.

Company officials made the announcement in Las Vegas on Monday.

They hope the unconventional move will help expand the fuel cell car market.

Toyota will share about 5,700 patents, including technologies for a system that controls the chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen, as well as those related to hydrogen tanks.

Most of the patents are available royalty-free for use until the end of 2020.

Patents related to hydrogen service stations will be available indefinitely.

Toyota began selling its first commercial fuel cell vehicles last month in Japan.

The automaker plans to release them in the United States and Europe by fall this year.

Toyota officials expect to sell only 700 units worldwide by the end of the year.

They cite the high price tag for the vehicle and the lack of hydrogen service stations.

An executive at Toyota Motor Sales said the company can help accelerate the move toward a hydrogen-powered society by releasing its 20 years of research and development
