Motor Show: BMW Hydrogen 7

BMW has been running hydrogen-powered 7-Series prototypes around for years, but it has finally committed to low-volume production. The zero-emissions Hydrogen 7 is not a fuel cell-powered car, generating its own electricity on-board from hydrogen. Rather, it has a conventional hydrogen-compatible internal combustion engine. The 260bhp 12-cylinder unit is also capable of running on petrol (a vital facility, since hydrogen supply is limited). Top speed is 143mph and the 0-60mph time 9.5 seconds, and the Hydrogen 7 has a range of over 400 miles between refuelling stops (125 miles in hydrogen mode, 300 from the petrol tank).

The Hydrogen 7 is just the first of a series of hydrogen-powered vehicles to come from BMW, which describes it as 'a milestone in industrialising hydrogen technologies for automotive use'. There have been significant moves to establish hydrogen refuelling points in the US, particularly in California, where the Hydrogen 7 will be offered to customers following its US launch at the Los Angeles Motor Show in November.

Ce nu spun ei aici e ca hidrogenul costa 8 euro pe kg.
Asta ar fi 62 de euro pt un rezervor, cu care mergi 205 km. Acceasi distanta parcursa cu benzina costa insa numai... 35 de euro (cf. Autobild-15.9.2006). Deci nu va grabiti sa cumparati
