Automakers Optimistic About Hydrogen-powered Future
WASHINGTON (AP) -- For Ford Motor Co. engineer Vance Zanardelli, the hydrogen fuel-cell automobiles of tomorrow face several obstacles, but the challenge of winning over the public may be best summed up by the 1937 Hindenburg disaster.
Zanardelli, addressing the National Hydrogen Association's annual conference on Thursday, showed old black-and-white footage of the hydrogen-fueled zeppelin bursting into flames. The accident killed 35 people.
"Everybody, as soon as they think of hydrogen, they think of the Hindenburg," Zanardelli said. He added: "That's what we have to deal with."
