Shanghai Firm Selling Hydrogen Fuel Cell
While the world waits for Suzuki to put their hydrogen fuel-cell powered Crosscage into production, China has already started making – and even exporting – hydrogen fuel-cell powered mopeds.
According to a report on Shanghai Daily, a Chinese company, Shanghai Pearl Hydrogen Power Resource Technology has been exporting fuel-cell mopeds since May this year. The company has, till now, sent 30 of these two-wheelers to England, Spain and the United States.
Fuel-cell bikes use hydrogen to generate electricity, which in turn powers an electric motor which drives the bike. Shanghai Pearl’s fuel-cell bikes can travel about 75km on a full tank of fuel – that’s about 50gm of hydrogen. Tanking up on hydrogen takes 20 minutes and costs about US$0.30.
