Behind the wheel of a hydrogen-powered car
from BBC News
It's a question I couldn't avoid as I drove across central England in a borrowed car powered by a hydrogen fuel cell. The Hyundai ix35 was fast, eerily quiet — they've installed a little electronic jingle so you can tell when you've switched it on — and there was a reassuring 230 miles (370 km) left on the clock. And best of all, I drove with the smug knowledge that when a vehicle is powered by hydrogen, the only exhaust product is water. Quite a difference from my own 13-year-old, one-litre petrol engine: noisy, slow and undeniably dirty. So why, I wondered, is this clean, green technology lagging far behind the hybrid and all-electric sectors?
