Although Volkswagen is known for its diesels, the German marque is glad to show that it's also a player on the fuel-cell battlefield. How? 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. Remarkably, VW shipped the somewhat "old" models, which are at least one year old. What's more, these cars had a few issues when they were tested by journalists, like shuddering acceleration. Well, at least VW can show that, like other automakers (Toyota, for instance), it can keep its stake in hydrogen vehicle development, despite those DOE cuts.
