UK Rally is First Outing for Fuel Cell, Alternative Fuel Vehicles
Fuel-cell passenger cars will be driven on British roads for the first time next Tuesday - World Environment Day.
Although three £750,000 Mercedes-Benz Citaro fuel-cell buses have been operated by Transport for London and fuelled by BP since January 2004, this 53-mile run from Brighton to London is the first time that fuel-cell passenger cars will be seen on the Queen's Highway.
Vehicles such General Motors' Hydro Gen 3 (a Zafira with the company's previous-but-one generation cell stack) will take the start at Brighton's Madeira Drive at about 10.30am, along with three examples of BMW's Hydrogen 7, the liquid hydrogen-fuelled 7-series, the all-electric Vetrix scooter, which will be operating near the limit of its 68-mile range, the Intelligent Energy ENV fuel-cell motorcycle, the Peugeot/Ricardo/QinetiQ hybrid diesel research vehicle and numerous hybrids, all-electric and bio-fuel powered cars.
