US DOE and Mahindras Partner on Hydrogen Three-wheeler

Goal to produce experimental hydrogen-fueled vehicle for densely populated cities.

WASHINGTON : The US department of energy will introduce three-wheeled, hydrogen-powered experimental vehicles in India through a joint project as a possible alternative to small vehicles used in densely populated cities.

In a public-private partnership supported by the US Agency for International Development (USAID) and department of energy (DoE), US companies specialising in the conversion of engines to hydrogen power will modify three-wheeled vehicles provided by Mahindra and Mahindra (M&M), according to DoE.

The project has the potential to encourage wider-scale conversions to hydrogen power with resulting positive impacts on reducing pollution and achieving greater energy sustainability.
