Formula Zero- the hydrogen fuel cell racing series

Motor racing is often a testing ground for features that eventually make their way into everyday vehicles. So a zero emission karting series bodes well. The karts run on electric motors powered by fuel cells and compete to see not which is fastest but also which is most efficient. A British team placed third overall in a recent race, behind Dutch and Spanish entries.

Can I ride your hydrogen bus?

Ford’s internal combustion hydrogen bus.  Definitely an interesting technology, but we need to work on less harmful ways of extracting the hydrogen in the first place

In the long term this and fuel cell technology are going to become cheaper and increasingly used in Public Service Vehicles.  It sounds like the internal combustion system, at least, is too cumbersome for smaller vehicles.
