Homemade Hydrogen Fuel Cell Hybrid At The 2008 Olympics

The 20 hydrogen cars, based on Volkswagen Passat Lingyu, were manufactured by Shanghai Volkswagen on its latest fuel cell powertrain platform. The powertrains are supplied by Shanghai Fuel Cell Vehicle Powertrain Co., Ltd (SFCV), Tongji University and Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation (SAIC). The hydrogen cars will provide courtesy services and inspection tours between Olympic stadiums. It is likely that 500 hydrogen-engine cars in a green car fleet will be in service during the Beijing 2008 Olympics. - Source: PESWiki
