Vehicles that run on hydrogen eyed

  • Print

DETROIT -- Ford is joining with Daimler and Renault-Nissan to speed development of cars that run on hydrogen, with hopes of bringing a vehicle to market in as little as four years.

Hydrogen fuel-cell vehicles generate electricity after a chemical reaction between hydrogen and oxygen. Hydrogen is stored in special high-pressure tanks, and the only emissions are water vapour and heat.

Under the alliance, each company will invest equally in the technology. They plan to develop a common fuel-cell system the companies will use to power their own vehicles. The companies also plan to take advantage of their combined size to reduce costs. Work will be done at the site of a previous fuel-cell joint venture between Ford and Daimler in Vancouver, as well as in Nabern, Germany and Oppama, Japan.
