Those of you living in cold places might be concerned, with reason, about the performance of certain vehicles in winter. Nissan announced that the X-Trail FCV is currently being tested in facilities near Hokkaido, Japan. Tests started last year and now it was time for tests in cold weather. The current model uses an all-new fuel cell, which is claimed to produce 40 percent more power than the previous unit, 130 kW against 90 kW, while being 25 percent smaller. The cell also reduces the amount of platinum it needs by half. Nissan is currently showing the technology at FC Expo 2009 in Tokyo, one of the world's largest fuel-cell exhibitions, this weekend.
