Eco-Products 2008: Yamaha, “two-wheeled vehicles, fuel cell, FC-Dii.”

On the other hand, “Packing Sol” and other small motorized scooters have been sold long since stopped Yamaha, two-wheeled vehicle fuel cell “FC-Dii” as a reference to auction the car was displaying a prototype car. FC-Dii, the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO) from the development of the grant has been received. Methanol-water solution (liquid) fuel and fuel-cell two-wheeled vehicle “FC-me” was the development of the basic performance model, and removable lithium-ion batteries can be recharged to be used. Visitors from the “When I leave this?” Questions such as, or “hope” a lot of voices.

The era of electric vehicles finally arrived. Ministry of the Environment in more than 50 cars started large-scale field trials

Ministry of the Environmen

December 2008 9, the Ministry of the Environment was held in the “promotion of introduction of next-generation automotive business” kick-off press conference

2009, the so-called Japan’s “first year of electric vehicles,” he said. Mitsubishi Motors and Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd., which has been developing electric cars, and finally actually be released as a commercial vehicle. December 2008 Ministry of the Environment and 9, such as electric cars and fuel cell vehicles to promote the dissemination of “promoting the next generation of cars introduced business”. In mid-January since 2009 more than 50 electric vehicles from the local public organizations or companies, using an official car and widespread demonstration experimental activities and public relations, said. The total budget of 400 million 9 million yen.

The train will be loaned by the main electric vehicles, Mitsubishi’s “i MiEV” 5 units”Subaru PURAGUINSUTERA” 15 units, BETAPUREISU type of electric car battery replacement, electric scooter, R & D “ELE -ZOO (ERE-worldly) “30. The Honda fuel cell vehicle “FCX KURARITI” adds one. The charging equipment, automobile and electrical equipment and for fast charging, the battery exchange stations BETAPUREISU to offer.

Mitsubishi i MiEV

Mitsubishi “i MiEV” maximum output of 47kW, torque 180Nm. A maximum speed of 130km / h in a charge of driving distance 160km (10-15 mode). Equipped with a lithium-ion batteries in the floor, after the rear-wheel electric motors to drive in

Power for the car left the home in backward socket (left), for fast charging socket at the rear right side (right) equipment. 100V power supply for the charging time at the home about 14 hours (full charge), 200V power supply for household use seven hours (full charge) and private facilities in the fast-charging about 30 minutes (80% charge)

Borrowers, local public organizations in Kanagawa Prefecture, Aichi, Osaka, Hyogo Prefecture, Yokohama City, and six locations in the city of Kitakyushu. That electric vehicles and fuel cell vehicles, one of the city of Kitakyushu, and the remaining five local government units 3 and 4 almost evenly assigned to each. However, the FCX fuel cell vehicle with hydrogen station is KURARITI deployed in the city of Yokohama, also BETAPUREISU electric cars in the city of Yokohama, the battery station will be installed in the Minato Mirai.

Lending to companies and the Subaru Stella plug-in electric scooters, Sagawa Express Group and the Japan Post’s postal services company is the target of the two companies. Click here for the delivery of services to be available.

Motorcycles with hydrogen: Suzuki Crosscage

It is not just cars that are entitled to hydrogen technologies! Suzuki, the Japanese manufacturer of two-wheelers and cars, presented its Crosscage: a prototype motorcycle with green innovations. Its dimensions. A length of 1985 mm, a width of 645 mm and a height of 1,020 mm.

Suzuki Crosscage, futuristic look, is equipped with an AC synchronous electric motor, a power system fuel cell type PEFC (polymer electrolyte) air-cooled, a reservoir for storing 35 MPa High-pressure hydrogen and a lithium-ion battery auxiliary high performance. Result: it enjoys an autonomy of 200 km. The manufacturer has not yet announced a release schedule for this kind of green gear. An interesting alternative to follow!

Cosmo Oil, Yokohama-Daikoku Hydrogen hydrogen filling stations in the demonstration started 70MPa

Cosmo Oil Co., a hydrogen station in Yokohama Daikoku, 70MPa pressure hydrogen storage for fuel tanks for fuel cell vehicles increased pressure on the completed work (presentation materials). 2008 on December 1, the hydrogen fuel cell vehicles to begin filling demonstrate.

Fuel-cell cars, automobile gasoline mileage level to achieve, hydrogen-powered fuel cell vehicles need to increase the amount. 35MPa in the mainstream of current from the fuel tank to increase pressure 70MPa, in order to improve mileage and effective way is 70Mpa already in the United States and in Germany for hydrogen storage systems and fuel cell vehicles using hydrogen station. Testing has already begun a public road.

The experiment, the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry, “Empirical studies of fuel cell systems” is part of a “hydrogen fuel cell demonstration” (JHFC project). In the Kanto area of four hydrogen stations are planned to respond to 70MPa, Daikoku One of the hydrogen station in Yokohama, in cooperation with Iwatani International said. 35MPa at the station, filling the tank of hydrogen can be carried out as usual.

Hydrogen vehicle’s tested in Europe: Opel HydroGen4

Hydrogen technologies trace their route in Europe. The manufacturer General Motors has announced that Opel HydroGen4, the fourth generation of vehicles with fuel cells with hydrogen, are now tested daily in real conditions in the streets of Berlin (Germany) by nine companies in Berlin (ADAC, Allianz, Coca Cola, Hilton, Linde, Schindler, Axel Springer, Total, Veolia). Their maintenance will be in a traditional concession Opel in the German capital. A service station allows establishment of the fuel.

The Opel HydroGen4 have a fuel cell consisting of 440 cells connected in series. The whole system provides a power of 93 kW and feeds a synchronous electric motor of 100 hp (73 kW). They also have a battery buffer storing 1.8 kWh of energy regenerative braking system. And they have a system with 3 storage tanks at high pressure of 700 bars made of carbon fiber they contain 4.2 kg of hydrogen. Their autonomy is 320 km. The acceleration. The 0-100 km/h in 12 seconds. Their speed is 160 km/h.

Their other assets. They can operate at temperatures below zero degrees and are equipped with wireless communication for engineers collect data. Not bad!
