Toyota and BMW to collaborate on new mid-sized sports car, hydrogen fuel cell tech, and more
EGM CarTech    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
MotorTrend reports that BMW and Toyota have confirmed a new collaborative effort on a mid-sized sports car as part of some future long-term projects. Both of the two major automakers will jointly develop this said sports car from the ground-up. It will be used to develop and research a fuel cell system, lightweight technology, and lithium-air batteries. The fuel cell system will be designed in-house meaning all-inclusive componentry such as the fuel cell stack, hydrogen tank, motor, and battery. Ideally, both BMW and Toyota seek to have this project completed by 2020 with a potential prototype available by 2015. More

Fuel cell industry showing promising progress
Hydrogen Fuel News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has published its latest report concerning the annual progress of funded projects in the hydrogen sector. In the past, the government has shown little support for the fuel cell industry. This interest had been growing for some time, until 2010, when DOE Secretary Steven Chu suggested that hydrogen fuel cells were a distant future solution to an immediate problem. Shortly thereafter, the government began seeing a wide variety of hydrogen fuel cells that led Chu to revise his outlook on the technology and the fuel cell industry. More
