France To Have First Hydrogen-Powered Car By 2015


France’s first hydrogen powered car was tested at Marcoussis, a town in the center of the country, and will be put on sale by the end of 2015.

According to BenoĆ®t Potier, head of the French company Air Liquide, “the new technology reduces carbon dioxide by 30%. The car is equipped with an engine that produces electricity instantly, and it’s also using a battery powered by the hydrogen tank.

In only 5 minutes the vehicle is fully charged and the user can drive a distance of about 500 km.”

Air Liquide has offered to invest in a new study in order to find out how many hydrogen pumps are needed to fuel this kind of cars.

In Germany, already existing hydrogen stations will be operational in a few years. In Korea and Japan hydrogen powered cars are already on the roads.
