Magna is presenting Mila ev at at the Geneva Motor Show 2009

The outstanding element and centerpiece of the mila ev is its fully integratedelectric vehicle platform which can be used by every OEM to realize their ownproduct, drive and design strategies in the shortest of time.

Concept mila ev is a 5-doors vehicle with a length of 4 m and a wheelbase of 2.5 m. It loads an electric motor of 67 hp, powered by a lithium-ion battery developed by Magna Steyr. At an average charging time of 2.5 hours, ranges of up to 150 km can be achieved.The curved lines of the body to provide an elegant and futuristic aesthetic.

The novel platform on which the mila ev is based is a completely developed conceptwhich can be used for production-vehicle development immediately and thus forseries production in the shortest of time as a genuine electric vehicle or, thanks tothe intelligent design, with natural gas, fuel cells or hybrid drive.

First hydrogen fuel cell tractor in Italy

What fuel will power agricultural equipment in the future? Except oil in addition to a lot of ways to try, one of which is the crop, we can directly in the car collection, and finally get them to as a fuel. Ethanol and bio-diesel in these options are the most widely used, but some people want to try hydrogen.

Holland NH2

Recently named a New Holland NH2, and are known as the world’s first hydrogen-powered hard drive, it just to the identity concept car debut in Italy. This zero-emission fuel cell from cultivators to gain power then passed to a 106hp electric horse to four-wheel-drive, but still has some hydrogen storage and high cost of inter-title, it did not intend to New Holland at 2013 years ago, her volume production.

FC EXPO 2009: 5th International Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Expo

Exhibitions organized by hydrogen fuel cells and batteries lead Japan Exhibition “FC EXPO 2009: 5th International Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Expo”, in Ariake, Tokyo, “Tokyo Big Sight” by February 25 to 27 to be held that. Car Watch, and the introduction of hydrogen fuel cell vehicle technology has been exhibited at the exhibition.

Project implemented by the Ministry of Economy “JHFC (Japan Hydrogen & Fuel Cell Demonstration Project: Hydrogen Fuel Cell Demonstration Project)” in the booth, and on empirical research and empirical studies of the hydrogen station and fuel cell vehicles have the same project implementation of the exhibition. Honda “FCX CLARITY” and Toyota “FCHV-adv”, General Motors Asia Pacific Japan “Equinox Chevrolet Fuel Cell” is displayed, such as fuel cell vehicles.

In addition, Nissan’s “X-TRAIL FCV” and newly developed fuel cell stack is mounted on, techno-hydrogen dispenser Tokico Ltd., Central District and the metropolitan area, and the introduction of hydrogen stations were established in the region that. The FCHV-adv at Tokyo Big Sight and the X-TRAIL FCV, the Honda “FCX”, Japan’s Mercedes-Benz “F-Cell” and the implementation of fuel cell vehicles and test drive. Fuel cell buses developed by Hino Motors and Toyota “FCHV-BUS” and ride is located near the Place “JHFC Ariake hydrogen station,” it also can visit and tour.

By the Ministry of Science and Technology Pavilion at the Swiss Embassy, Switzerland, fuel cell vehicles “PAC-Car II” are on display. Exhibition abroad that the first time.

PAC-Car II, fuel cell car project students from the Technical University of Zurich Switzerland. Held in 2005, “Shell Eco-Marathon”, the equivalent petrol 5385km/L to achieve fuel efficiency, combustion efficiency, set a world record. This record also does not say that now breached.

1L fuel cartridge 2 is labeled about 11 hydrogen-compressed using a 2g with a crowbar, which is equivalent to gasoline 8ml. 12V, maximum output of 900W and a fuel cell system with power supply, a maximum speed of 32km/h. Rear-wheel drive is powered by two DC motors, low-power when the power from the motors can be divided into one or both. The body is carbon fiber material used, shape of body weight is 10kg, and 29kg in total is. In addition, he said that improving the fuel efficiency of the wheel and use a fiber optic communication in the electronic control. PAC-Car II PAC-Car II PAC-Car II PAC-Car II

Horizon Fuel Cell Japan, sales based assisted bicycle “HMX” was exhibited. Driven by hydrogen, with a filling of times they can travel 300km and speed of road in the 25Km/h. Reference price is 4,600 dollars. For these products, but always clinging to the question of how to supply the fuel, so I’m thinking about developing a system that can be filled with hydrogen at home. If hydrogen can be generated by electrolysis of water.

Nissan begins driving tests in vehicles equipped with a new fuel cell stack

Nissan-FCV

Nissan, 2009 February 25, the experimental vehicle equipped with a newly developed fuel cell stack, said it was cold and running experiments. Fuel cell stack is mounted in the 2008’s, the volume of the stack of conventional 3/4 and smaller, conventional 130kW and 90kW output increased from 1.4 times. The amount of platinum used in the more conventional 1/2 also enhance the durability of the catalyst and reduced to life and provides a significant cost reduction.

Experiments started in 2008 by driving this car from the end of 2009 in February and the cold test in the company’s test track in Hokkaido Rikubetsu are developed for the commercialization of fuel cell vehicles. The company, in February 2009 to be held from 25 to 27 at Tokyo Big Sight “FC EXPO 2009 (5th International Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Expo)” and to exhibit a fuel cell stack

Mercedes BlueZERO, 3 versions to show the versatility of the hybrid series

One of the outstanding cars of the Detroit Auto Show. This is a car that is unique and multifaceted, since although it is a concept car, either by defining a single model, it exists in 3 distinct versions, with performance just as distinct. Initially, the series hybrid architecture. This has nothing to do with the Toyota Prius, where the success of the hybrid architecture based on a parallel development of highly accurate, with very little room for improvement, or even change.

Concept BlueZERO0

Mercedes suggests that here is an electric car, with 3 ways to provide electricity that will move the vehicle. It could even invent your own with a gas turbine, or 4 small Chinese cycling and lead to a dynamo, but it would take up much space … When the second goal of Mercedes is to show the interest of its chassis sandwich. Although not new, as already used on all Class A and B. Finally, this concept illustrates what could be the next generation of Class B, with a style that the least we can say is that it is daring.

The base is a front-wheel drive with an electric motor in transverse

position, and what is changing is the way to provide electricity. In the E-Cell is a Lithium-Ion battery with a capacity of 35 kWh, it can go 200 km. The F-Cell then, has a fuel cell (PAC) and 3 hydrogen tanks that can do 400 km. In the E-Cell More

Finally, a small petrol engine (the Smart Fortwo) associated with a

generator to recharge the battery while driving, autonomy reaches the 600 km. Schematic models of the 3 below, in that order.

Each solution has its advantages and disadvantages, as its advocates and detractors. Acceleration and peak speed are identical in the 3 cases, they are very average with a 0 to 100 km/h in 11 s by an electric motor of 70 kW (100 kW peak) is self – that makes the difference. Not forgetting also the time to recharge. A full hydrogen or gasoline takes 2 minutes, while the electric version, Mercedes says it takes 4 hours on a 220 V 32 A, which is roughly the maximum that can be found in an individual.

remove the hybrid gasoline since it is not zero emission. But Mercedes does not take a position, he shows he can do 3. And as customers, energy suppliers and political leaders agree to determine who should have the great future. Mercedes has for him a big decision to be taken at the design: it must adopt as original lines for future small Mercedes? The new head of design at Mercedes, Gorden Wagener, will not slow to point out..
