Fuel Cell Car
IndyCar pace vehicles don't have to be gas-gulping, rubber-laying muscle cars. In fact, pace cars can be green machines. Take, for example, the hydrogen-fueled Honda FCX Clarity, which will assume pace car duties at the 2011 Honda Grand Prix of St. Petersburg in late March.
By 2015, we think a fuel cell car will not cost more than a four-cylinder diesel hybrid that meets the Euro 6 emissions standard. By 2013-2014, we want to bring a four-digit-number of fuel cell vehicles to market.

Powertrain engineering firm AVL choose the Austria Tec Week (PDF warning) at Expo 2010 Shanghai to debut its Fuel Cell Commuter (FCC), a high-tech electric vehicle with a hydrogen fuel cell range extender.

The Big Japanese Three automakers are all working on fuel cell vehicles. This is no surprise, especially to anyone who remembers that, between 1998 and 2004, two out of every three fuel cell patent applications were filed by Japanese companies. What might be a surprise is how big th
Toyota has joined the Clean Energy Partnership (CEP) in Europe to help promote low- and zero-emission vehicles and related infrastructure. The automaker will be providing five of its Highlander-based FCHV-adv fuel-cell vehicles available for the CEP test fleet in Berlin and H
Toyota, Nissan and Honda all participated in a fuel cell demonstration run in Japan last week. The three automakers brought their most advanced hydrogen fuel cell vehicles out for the two-day trip from Tokyo to Fukuoka with an overnight stop in Osaka. The driving teams piloted a Sam Abuelsamid
It's difficult to pick the strangest part of Greg Blencoe's post today about his ongoing bet with Joe Romm over the viability of hydrogen cars. It could be the hubris, the feeling of unquestioned "win" ahead for Blencoe (who, of course) came down on the pro-hydrogen-soon of the bet. But what's really bizarre is that he is using a picture of soldiers placing an American flag on a coffin as his lead image for his post. Is this a comment on how devastat

As you might or might not know Smart was founded by a joint venture created by DaimlerBenz and the Swiss brand of watches Swatch. One of the fathers of that idea (if not the main contributor), Nicholas Hayek, Swatch CEO, has now announced he is developing a new vehicle: a fuel-cell car.
