Ok, what about a car that runs on hydrogen and emits water? For all of you with green thumbs it sounds pretty damn good. The public has been clammering for decades, like Beyonce fans for Beyonce, for fuel-cell vehicles (FCVs). Sure there’s always those test models that the public never gets a chance to get their crazy hands on. But finally it’s our turn for some fuel-cell-vehicle fun! This year, Honda put its FCX Clarity zooming onto the roads of California. This is the real deal—not some experimental prototype that will only be seen by car nerds at auto shows. The Honda FCX Clarity–a hydrogen-fueled cell vehicle that generates electricity for a lively motor—is already in the hands of private drivers (most likely high-profile celebs), who are leasing these green machines. Though such set backs as few fuel stations are minor setbacks, the anit-gas uprising has begun.
Mercedes is the other big playa’ in the fuel cell game. According to Mercedes-Benz boss Dieter Zetsche, “I’m driving fuel-cell prototypes that have no disadvantages to the customer compared with a conventional car. They have a 250- to 300-mile range, a three-minute refuelling time and good take-off.”
Viva la hydrogen-fueled cell vehicles!
