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.

The concept car Volkswagen Citizen. A technological showcase interesting

Big cities are facing the nuisance caused by motor vehicle pollution, noise and congestion. The concept car called green Volkswagen Citizen, futuristic design and aerodynamic forms, was developed to remedy this situation in the future. It represents the Volkswagen vehicle of the twenty-first century: a green program!

Volkswagen Citizen

The Citizen Volkswagen is led through a removable joystick (joystick): the passenger can even use it to fly. It has a hybrid propulsion system consisting of electric motors, batteries and hydrogen fuel cells. Its small wheels, hidden under the bodywork, can rotate 180 degrees to make it easier maneuvering motorists. This concept car modern and sophisticated will he revolutionize the day for sustainable mobility.

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!
