Fuel Cell Cars; September 2008; Scientific American Earth 3.0; by James R. Healey; 2 Page(s)
Amid many promises about futuristic
automobiles, an unlikely one seems to
be coming true: hydrogen fuel-cell cars.
No, you can¿t buy a hydrogen car from a local dealer. But General Motors (GM) and American Honda Motor are putting close to 300 street-legal, fullfeatured, hydrogen fuel-cell machines
into the hands of individual American
drivers for use in real-world conditions.
Long-term, a fleet could help reduce
dependence on oil and lessen greenhouse
gas emissions because the cells produce
no pollution, just water.
