EVWorld Video: Fuel Cell Ford Focus

Come along for a ride in the Th!nk Technology fuel cell-powered Ford Focus.

By EV World

This exclusive EV World video is one minute in length and takes you along for a ride in the future of automotive transportation. Powered by hydrogen, the fuel cell Ford Focus offers all the amenities and performance of a conventional gasoline-powered Focus, but produces water vapor as its only emission.

The car was part of the Ride&Drive held during EnV 2001 in Southfield, Michigan, June 11-13, 2001 on the campus of Lawrence Technical University. The car is part of FordĀ¹s Th!nk Technology program to develop advanced fuel cell and electric-drive technology. The video was shot on a Sony digital video camera and edited on a Apple Macintosh G-4 computer using Final Cut Pro version 1.1.

You will need RealPlayer to watch this 1 minute streaming video. Select the file that most closely matches your network bandwidth or dial-up connection speed or the best quality. You may notice rebuffering delays during playback since the video is being served from a conventional HTTP server instead of a dedicated streaming media server. We appreciate both your interest and patience if this occurs.

If you would prefer to view a better quality version of video offline simply right click on the Downloadable Version (Quicktime) file link and save it to your hard drive. You will then be able to playback the file without interruption. You must have Apple's Quicktime Player installed.
