Hydrogen Hopes: New Concept Car Unveiled

Tom Parmenter, Sky News Online

An entrepreneur has unveiled a hydrogen-powered car capable of travelling hundreds of miles between fuel stops at speeds of up to 50mph.

The Riversimple concept car, developed in an Oxfordshire workshop by former racing driver Hugo Spowers, aims to challenge the obstacles that have so far prevented a hydrogen-powered vehicle breaking into the mass market.

Mr Spowers told Sky News: “We are taking a whole system approach, we’re not just a fuel cell company, we don’t focus on the individual parts – it’s about the whole.”

The hydrogen cells that drive the electric motors are very light, meaning the two-seater car weighs just 350kg, considerably less than its rivals.
