BMW has yet to release an official statement

BMW has canceled its plan to unveil their hydrogen fuel cell concept at the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit.

According to a report by the BMW blog, the German automaker's hydrogen-powered concept car will be a no show at the 2015 NAIAS. This recent announcement contradicts with BMW's initial plan to unveil its hydrogen fuel cell concept at the said auto show.

Last week, BMW's official press release stated that the company was going to unveil a hydrogen fuel cell concept that could be integrated "into a future Fuel Cell Electric Vehicle (FCEV)." The German automaker goes on by saying that the company is "replicating its approach" with its BMW i3 and i8 models by focusing on a specific "vehicle architecture for a future" FCEV.

As of this writing, BMW has yet to release an official statement regarding the issue.
