Hydrogen Cars not all hype

CARS - Honda has unveiled a new hydrogen powered concept car, a supercar called the Honda FC Sport (the FC stands for fuel cell). Honda says the FC Sport will offer "speed, handling and sleek looks of today's fastest sports cars, yet without the noise, heat, vibration, and emissions of the internal-combustion engine."

So far its just hype. The three-seat coupe concept car isn't headed to the production line anytime soon, but they are testing the waters for building the new cars.

And they're not the only ones.

While Ford and General Motors are touting their new hybrids, they and other car makers are thinking ahead of the curve and unveiling new hydrogen powered cars.

General Motors for example is coming out with its new HydroGen4 engine, which it hopes will be the basis for a whole new line of hydrogen vehicles.

Lars-Peter Thiesen, head of GM’s hydrogen and fuel-cell deployment strategy, insists that hydrogen cars will be here faster than we think. “There is now a consensus that the first fuel-cell cars for normal commercial sale could arrive about 2015,” he says.
