Toyota Expands Hydrogen Vehicle Lineup

  New Hydrogen Pickup & SUV Are Being Developed                                                                          Source:  Toyota Zero Emissions World Japanese automaker Toyota is placing big bets on hydrogen as a very promising alternative to battery electric vehicles in the new world of zero emissions driving.  The company is developing both a hydrogen powered pickup truck and a hydrogen powered SUV.  Toyota is clearly building a hydrogen vehicle portfolio.  It is also currently testing hydrogen powered semi-trucks in California and also is selling its Mirai hydrogen car in California, which is at the forefront of the number of hydrogen filling stations in the United States. Tech Specs The new hydrogen pickup is being developed at Toyota's UK operations. Toyota is working with a consortium of British companies and has secured funding for the project from the British government. The team is using a Toyota Hilux pickup, which is not sold in the US, and has embedded the M

Flying on the Wings of Hydrogen

  Germany's H2Fly                                             Source:  H2Fly Future of Green, Zero Emissions Flying A major, zero emissions flying project is underway in Germany to open the global skies to hydrogen-powered planes.  Germany's H2Fly, which is a global leader in hydrogen propulsion systems, is performing a series of flight tests on its hydrogen plane with its advanced powertrain that pumps out 130 kW of power.  Testing of the twin boom Hy4 aircraft is taking place at an airport in Stuttgart, Germany and will continue through mid-2022.  H2Fly and its partner Duetsche Aircraft will then further refine the hydrogen powered flying system. H2Fly believes that their hydrogen propulsion system can be adapted for powering a range of aircraft, including large ones capable of carrying 100 passengers and also small, 4 to 8 seat eVTOLs (electric, vertical takeoff and landing vehicles). Hydrogen Powered Flights into the Future The HY4 is H2Fly's seventh generation aircraft

UK's New Hydrogen Plane Concept

  Fly Zero H2-Plane                                                  Source:  ATI FlyZero New Zero Emissions Way to Fly The United Kingdom's Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) is world famous for aviation innovation. Along with funding from the UK government and aviation partners like Airbus and Rolls Royce, ATI has developed a zero-emissions plane concept designed to fly on liquid hydrogen.  Not only that.  It is designed to fly halfway around the world on liquid hydrogen without any refueling which amounts  to 6,037 miles.  This is the new Fly Zero concept plane and it is a look at the future of zero emissions flying.  It is part of a new world of flying with no pollution spewing into the atmosphere.  Early Look at the Tech The concept is a midsized aircraft powered totally by liquid hydrogen that can carry 279 passengers, nonstop from London to San Francisco or elsewhere for up to 6,037 miles. The new plane has a 177-foot wingspan with two turbofan engines powered by hydrogen.

From the UK, a Totally 0-Emissions Sub

  Oceanways Subs Run on Hydrogen                                                  Source:  Oceanways Carries Cargo and Simultaneously Cleans Water Pollution In the United Kingdom,  maritime innovation company Oceanways has created award winning and unique, green hydrogen-powered submarines.  These green subs are fully autonomous and they are the world's first fully hydrogen-powered submarines.  They serve a dual purpose.  They carry cargo and simultaneously collect microplastics from the waters they are moving through.  This technology is so revolutionary it has won the UK's top prize for clean maritime innovation.  The UK's Clean Maritime Demonstration Competition is designed to support the development of innovative technologies to achieve Prime Minister Boris Johnson's commitment to zero emissions commercial shipping by 2025.  Oceanways also plans to use the green subs to eventually transport people as a zero emissions transportation system of the future.

Global Push for Hydrogen Fuel Cell Cars

  Audi, BMW & Daimler Making Major Hydrogen Pushes                                           Source: BMW Hydrogen SUV Europe Joining Japan, South Korea & China in Development of Green Hydrogen Cars Big German automakers, including BMW and Audi, are betting that hydrogen fuel cell technology is extremely important to the future of driving, along with battery electric cars.  The current global consensus is that electric battery vehicles, your current and future EV, are the primary key to the near term, global automotive future.  But the new twist from top automotive executives is the growing support building around the upcoming emergence of hydrogen powered cars, which are clean, zero emissions and much quicker to re-fuel.  BMW and Audi, in particular, are ramping up their hydrogen vehicle development plans. They know that EVs remain a big part of the nearer zero emissions future and are building a portfolio of EVs. But they are signing on to a longer term strategy that hydrogen

New Honda Runs on Air & Hydrogen

  Breakthrough, Zero Emissions, Electric Car                                                                                  Source:  Honda Clarity No Charging is Needed on This EV The EV is called the Honda Clarity and it is revolutionary new green technology. It is powered by ordinary air and hydrogen.  Their combination triggers a chemical reaction that generates electricity to power the car. Clarity is an FCEV or a fuel cell electric vehicle.  What is truly remarkable about the vehicle is the way electricity is produced and that no charging at all is needed to drive the car. How Does It Work? What makes the Clarity so different is the pressurized fuel tank of hydrogen that the driver fills.  When combined with air, it yields enough electricity to provide a 366 mile range.  There is no charging needed.  And the fuel system is zero emissions producing only water vapor.  This is breakthrough, new automotive technology that Honda has been developing for several years that is now comin
