The Hydrogen Bandwagon

CARS - Ford, Renault-Nissan, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Daimler, Chrysler, Kia, Toyota, Lotus, BMW, Volkswagon and numerous other car manufacturers are all building their own versions of hydrogen-powered cars which will be sold on the mass market. Almost every major manufacturer is on the hydrogen bandwagon.

There's even a hydrogen supercar, hydrogen buses, hydrogen motorcycles and hydrogen bicycles coming out. Boeing and several other aviation giants are also making hydrogen powered airplanes.

It really makes you realize that hydrogen power is the way of the future. The only real delay is getting the infrastructure in place so we can power our cars this way... infrastructure which is dependent on having more electricity to create hydrogen using sea water.

But the good news is that electricity plants will now have something to do with all the excess electricity that is left over (they always produce more than is actually needed to prevent brown outs). That excess electricity can now be used to create hydrogen and government-owned electricity grids will be able to turn an extra profit by producing hydrogen (which currently costs about the same as gasoline).

In the meantime here is some videos for you to enjoy!

However they really need to do something about the ENV hydrogen motorcycle. Its just not "manly" enough for the average motorcyclist. Give it some noises, up the horsepower, make it bigger and more impressive. They can still sell the wimpy version to those people who just want to get to work/etc, but most motorcyclists are in it for the enjoyment and need more than 8 horsepower. The ultra-light version might sell well in countries that want a cheap go-to vehicle, but it won't be popular in North America.
