Ford Motor Company unveiled the world’s first drivable fuel cell hybrid electric plug-in that combines an onboard hydrogen fuel cell generator with lithium-ion batteries to deliver more than 41 mpg with zero emissions. The unveiling happened at the Washington, D.C. Auto Show on January 23, 2007. The vehicle is built on a flexible powertrain architecture that will enable Ford to use new fuel and propulsion technologies as they develop without redesigning the vehicle.
This concept vehicle offers Ford the ultimate in flexibility in researching advanced propulsion technology. Ford can take the fuel cell power system out and replace it with a down-sized diesel, gasoline engine or any other powertrain connected to a small electric generator to make electricity like the fuel cell does now.
The plug-in hybrid is powered by a 336-volt lithium-ion battery pack at all times. The vehicle drives the first 25 miles each day on stored electricity alone, after which the fuel cell begins operating to keep the battery pack charged. This provides another 200 miles of range for a total of 225 miles with zero emissions.
The Ford Edge with HySeries Drive can travel at speeds of up to 85 mph. An on-board charger (110/220 VAC) can refresh the battery pack when a standard home outlet is available, making the concept a true plug-in hybrid.
Ford says this is the kind of technology that we need if America is to become energy independent. Research into hydrogen, including the Ford Edge with HySeries Drive, is part of Ford’s overall effort to address the challenges of climate change and energy independence.

Boeing has flown a manned aircraft on hydrogen fuel cell power. The full text of Boeing’s release follows:
MADRID, Spain, April 03, 2008 — Boeing [NYSE: BA] announced today that it has, for the first time in aviation history, flown a manned airplane powered by hydrogen fuel cells.
The recent milestone is the work of an engineering team at Boeing Research & Technology Europe (BR&TE) in Madrid, with assistance from industry partners in Austria, France, Germany, Spain, the United Kingdom and the United States.
“Boeing is actively working to develop new technologies for environmentally progressive aerospace products,” said Francisco Escarti, BR&TE’s managing director. “We are proud of our pioneering work during the past five years on the Fuel Cell Demonstrator Airplane project. It is a tangible example of how we are exploring future leaps in environmental performance, as well as a credit to the talents and innovative spirit of our team.”
A fuel cell is an electrochemical device that converts hydrogen directly into electricity and heat with none of the products of combustion such as carbon dioxide. Other than heat, water is its only exhaust.
A two-seat Dimona motor-glider with a 16.3 meter (53.5 foot) wingspan was used as the airframe. Built by Diamond Aircraft Industries of Austria, it was modified by BR&TE to include a Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) fuel cell/lithium-ion battery hybrid system to power an electric motor coupled to a conventional propeller.
Three test flights took place in February and March at the airfield in Ocaña, south of Madrid, operated by the Spanish company SENASA.
During the flights, the pilot of the experimental airplane climbed to an altitude of 1,000 meters (3,300 feet) above sea level using a combination of battery power and power generated by hydrogen fuel cells. Then, after reaching the cruise altitude and disconnecting the batteries, the pilot flew straight and level at a cruising speed of 100 kilometers per hour (62 miles per hour) for approximately 20 minutes on power solely generated by the fuel cells.
According to Boeing researchers, PEM fuel cell technology potentially could power small manned and unmanned air vehicles. Over the longer term, solid oxide fuel cells could be applied to secondary power-generating systems, such as auxiliary power units for large commercial airplanes. Boeing does not envision that fuel cells will ever provide primary power for large passenger airplanes, but the company will continue to investigate their potential, as well as other sustainable alternative fuel and energy sources that improve environmental performance.
BR&TE, part of the Boeing Phantom Works advanced R&D unit, has worked closely with Boeing Commercial Airplanes and a network of partners since 2003 to design, assemble and fly the experimental craft.
The group of companies, universities and institutions participating in this project includes:
Austria — Diamond Aircraft Industries
France — SAFT France
Germany — Gore and MT Propeller
Spain — Adventia, Aerlyper, Air Liquide Spain, Indra, Ingeniería de Instrumentación y Control (IIC), Inventia, SENASA, Swagelok, Técnicas Aeronauticas de Madrid (TAM), Tecnobit, Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, and the Regional Government of Madrid
United Kingdom — Intelligent Energy
United States — UQM Technologies.

Another video that I got a hold of showing that there is new technology. With new technology regarding this video storing hydrogen, I personally do not feel safe with storage on any vehicle compressed hydrogen Gas that would become a bomb during any automobile accident. HHO Gas made on demand is much safer than Stored hydrogen to electric cars being promoted by the big three and other automobile makers. Think about your barbecue fuel tank exploding. If you want to find out the real dangers of compressed gas in the tank go on to YouTube and spell out propane tanks exploding. After viewing these videos everyone will have a change of mind of having this technology on their car. Storing any gas of any type at any pressure you and your family are in extreme danger if this technology takes place. Say no to compress gas on your vehicle. For example when an airplane has a crash landing with an empty fuel tank the airplane explodes on impact. Gasoline or any gas vapors stored is extremely explosive.

If this is a look into our future, it’s not too pretty… but at least it’s clean. What you’re looking at is Honda’s hydrogen fuel-cell powered vehicle called the FCX. As part of their continuing research into advanced transportation technologies, Honda has actually brought this little car to market in limited quantities, and for those who get to drive it, it’s a very unique experience.
Repost of previous vids, combined two parts down to one. This is the Energy Builders Network prototype cell scheduled to go into production in kit form very soon. We’re just working out the details of the bubbler which will have an automatically reseting blowout mechanism.
hi here is the design of andrija puharich water fuel hydrogen injector of 1970 stanley meyer copied it .it uses radiolysis electrolysis and “SUPER HEATED STEAM”(1600 times normal)under pressure, heavy water (deuterium oxide)snow and hail best .12V DC BATTERY THEN AC CURRENT by way of a 1200 watt inverter,magnatron to make processed distilled water ionised ,then a 4 bridge diode to transform back to dc but at much high a voltage,makes plasma ignition ,and no air filter (daniel dingle says this ) redesigned diesel injector or spark plug,tip cut off to earth to outer case of plug. made of palladium/gold cathode. hit it with a plasma ignitor,will make a steam engine basics. tesla coil effect/lightening strikes 84khz so the following frequencies add up. distilled water from microwave with 3 per cent koh which is baking soda in a modified diesel engine. vacuum downstroke of the engine.HIT WITH 42712.2hz then 21356.1hz then 10678.05hz IN HARMONY. BINGO. YOU HAVE WATER FUELED CAR ATOMIC POWER .also may be a platinum made injector tip will cause hydrogen to explode without the plasma,and i am told gold are the best electrodes (daniel dingle states this on his bonnet ,”gold new days”)..for anyone that knows this other catalyst action .reply please. tel 0044 1773 590426 if you want to get a practicle example set up (practicle engine is about to start 12 october 2008) with a modified diesel engine adapted to take spark plugs where the glow plugs go and the diesel injection pump will be modified to make a water pressure pump (2000psi) instead with the main pump wheel driven off the engine, also having a type of distributor placed at 90 degrees offsets to act as the 4 stroke firing order for a plasma ignition circuit that has been given to me, which will hopfully fire the high pressure ionised water vapour to explode as steam by dissociating the water in the chamber with massive down force as it will also be in a vacuum.here is andrija puharich,s patent the full site to go to http://www.rexresearch.com/puharich/1puhar.htm also look at you tube video andrija puharich lecture part3 BIG CLUE FROM NATURE..type in PISTOL SHRIMP
