BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Non-polluting hydrogen-powered car technology could replace conventional oil-fuelled vehicles within a generation, Ford of Europe Chairman Nick Scheele said on Tuesday.

Ford would be road testing a fleet of the so-called fuel cell cars within the next two years, Scheele said.

"We believe that fuel cell cars have the potential in our life-time to end the 100-year reign of the internal combustion engine," Scheele told a conference in Brussels where Ford was presenting a range of environmentally friendly cars.
