Honda’s hydrogen car

June 19, 2008

Finally, a major manufacturer has made a car that looks like any other modern car (read crappy, but no crappier than usual), gets around 75 mpg, and emits water.  Nice.  Granted, there are still issues like the small number of models produced at this point, and the need of hydrogen fueling stations.  Right now California is the only part of the country that will be able to utilize the car, but as the amount of fueling stations increase, so will the hydrogen cars.

Some supposedly famous actress in front of the car.

    bout time. Shouldn’t be that hard to do. Hydrogen would be nice. What happens when one wrecks? I bet it explodes like that thermite!

    Haha, yeah, that was always a concern with hydrogen-fueled vehicles. I remember Mr. Reeves talking about hydrogen being soaked into something like coal that would enable it to be used as fuel, but not be in its volatile state. I believe the hydrogen fuel cells essentially do that, i.e., keep the hydrogen in a non-volatile state. Non-volatile in terms of exposure to oxygen that is. Obviously it needs to be volatile to some extent in order to act as a fuel.
