As others automakers plan battery-powered SUVs and trucks, Toyota Motor Corp.'s vision for the future of driving remains a hydrogen-sipping sedan.

The Japanese behemoth will begin sales late next year of its second-generation Mirai, a fuel cell-powered four-door, and will ramp up annual production by tenfold from the current model.

Toyota's bet — that it can position a hydrogen sedan for more of a mass market — flies in the face of rivals wagering on putting batteries into the bigger-bodied vehicles consumers are buying.
