Ford Confident Hydrogen Engine Nearly Consumer-ready
The Ford Motor Company is testing its internal combustion hydrogen engine around the United States and Canada in the form of shuttle buses. They produce only small amounts of harmful emissions and get better mileage than their older gasoline counterparts.
About thirty of the 12-passenger E-450 Hydrogen shuttle buses are being used at airports, convention centers, and other such public facilities.
The Ford hydrogen buses cost about $250,000, which is about 3.5 times the price of equivalent gasoline powered buses. They get about 150 to 200 miles (240 to 320 kilometers) between hydrogen fill-ups.
