Hydrogen on the Road

Monday, June 23rd, 2008

I have been waiting a long time to write this one. And Honda did it first. When I first learned about their hybrids a few years back using both gas and electric it seemed a bit of a waste to carry to sources of motion -gas engine and electric motor. But while considering it, the thought came to mind they could switch out the gas and have a totally new car. There is nothing simple about a hydrogen engine, but with the electric motor on the road for a few years it is not new technology allowing them to push into the new concept of hydrogen powered cars.  Cool huh!

Clarity Dash

Consider how much work went into making this dashboard look this way and it gives a sense of how much work honda puts into the finishing touches of their cars.

Roadster

For those who are searching for a Prius, but with a bit more kick, they may soon have the option from Musk who made his fortune selling PayPall to ebay. By using a stylish car and adding thousands of AA size rechargeable batteries along with some top quality motors he has a real performer – making 0-60 in as little as 4 seconds. There may be a bit of sticker shock for those accustomed to their $25k Prius since they will be selling for around $100k. Looks like a lot of fun to me, and if any of you decide to get one be sure to let me test drive it so I can add an update to my review.

Air Car

Air Car

Being this is my first post to this new site I wanted to start with a new concept car that is coming to market soon and is inspiring in many ways. To start with instead of creating heat while driving, it produces cold air. When I think of all the people of the world who live in warm or hot climates and could use cold air instead of hot, this could be a real find. This is my favorite model so far since it has the many windows. The biggest advantage for those living in a hot climate? When the compressed air is released to power the car it provides air conditioning.
