Hydrogen Fuel Cell powered Scorpion...bum side
Hydrogen Fuel Cell Scorpion
Sometimes one comes across an image so striking, itbecomes a near obsession. That has been the case for us GSpotters with the Fuel Cell Car Kit from Fat Brain Toys. I mean, once we realized that for less than $130 bucks, we could create a vehicle that essentially runs off water, we were hooked.
How serendipitous then, to be perusing TheCool Hunter.net and see a sleek driveable version of our obsession, Ronn Motor Company's Scorpion, in all it's black and green sexy glory. The car uses a 'hydrogen on demand' technology, which generates water from a holding tank, turns it into hydrogen and then injects it into the car's system. Not only does this approach allow fuel mileage to increase by between 20 to 40%, it also reduces carbon emissions to nearly zero.
This eco-beast will be availble in 2009 for about $150,000.
