New Ford Plug-In Hybrid Has an Edge
Seen by some as the Holy Grail of sustainable mobility, fuel cells convert hydrogen to electricity with only heat and water as by-products.
Now, just when the technology has matured enough for several fleets to be unleashed on public roads throughout the world, the battery is back.
This apparent U-turn is due to the "plug-in" hybrid, an idea which has emerged over the last year or two. These usually consist of a battery-electric car carrying a small engine to recharge the battery when needed rather than drive the wheels. At night, the hybrid can be "plugged in" and recharged, which means the engine may not be needed at all for regular short journeys.
