As many automakers turn their attention to electric vehicles, fuel cells are not getting as much attention as they used to.

AddArmy turns to fuel cell technology for M1 Abrams tank

What's next, a battery-powered tank? Well, no, but how does a fuel cell-powered M1 Abrams sound instead?

By shipping 16 fuel-cell Passat Lingyu sedans to the U.S. from China. The cars were brought to the California Fuel Cell Partnership facility in West Sacramento for long-term testing.
