The Zero Emission Car Has Arrived, But….

BMW have just built a hydrogen powered concept car. It uses a 6 ltr 300bhp internal combustion engine and it's only emission is steam. Sounds good until you realise there are some serious problems with it.

1, It only has a range of 200km between fill ups.
2, There are only 5 fuelling stations in the whole world.
3, The production of the hydrogen uses considerably more fossil fuel than just sticking petrol in it.

But at least they are making an effort. How many other major car manufacturer have got this far?

Almost there, but no cigar.
