Hydrogen-powered Car Given Financial Push
> With his vision that "the first car driven by a child born today" should be powered by hydrogen, President George W. Bush has helped propel the idea of fuel cell-powered vehicles from the realm of science fiction towards commercial reality.
But he has added an intriguing new dimension: the possibility that America on wheels could be freed from its dependence on foreign sources of oil if most of the vehicles US drivers used were hydrogen-fuelled rather than gasoline-fuelled. Both ideas, however, are still a long way off fruition.
Carmakers have laboured since the 1990s with the concept of fuel cell engines as a way of reducing the air-polluting emissions produced by the internal combustion engine.
