Much Cheaper Fuel Cells On The Way With New Prototype

Australian researchers have developed a new fuel cell prototype that could lead to much cheaper, more efficient fuel cell vehicles in the near future. Scientists at Monash University in Melbourne created a new cathode that could bypass the need for expensive platinum nanoparticles, which adds about $3500 to $4000 to… »8/02/08 12:00pm8/02/08 12:00pm

SMART Car Vending Machine Only Dispenses Marketing Materials, False Hope

Here I was, credit card in hand, ready to fly across the Pacific and purchase my very first SMART Car from a vending machine, when I'm told it's just some advertisement.

Scorpion Supercar Uses Hydrogen Hybrid Engine to get 40MPG

According to Ronn Motors, the Scorpion supercar will not only achieve 0-60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, but also earns green credentials by getting 40 miles per gallon. This trick is achieved by having a hydrogen-hybrid engine under the hood (also known as hydrogen injection, Water4Gas or HHO.) Small doses of hydrogen are… »6/06/08 8:10am6/06/08 8:10am
