World’s first hydrogen-powered production car

| 14/09/2010

(BBC): A fuel cell car claimed to bethe world’s first to come off a production line has come to the UK. The Honda FCXClarity uses hydrogen to generate electricity, which then powers the car. The carmaker sees it as the future of motoring, insisting hydrogen is better than batteries that need to be very heavy to supply enough electricity. But it is likely to be many years before the infrastructure is in place to make these cars practical. As such, Honda’s hydrogen car could be seen as a brave move; previous models made by other carmakers in the past, often as derivatives of conventinoal models, have not been put into production.
