I’ve always been interested in and excited by new power sources. I fully expect the day to come when there are more non-gasoline powered vehicles on the road in America than otherwise.
The bike on the right here is The ENV (Emissions Neutral Vehicle)
The cool points?
- It uses hydrogen for fuel, so the exhaust is essentially water
- It has about the same noise impact as a home computer (they’ve considered having it generate artificial noise for safety reasons)
- It’ll go 100 miles on a single charge
- It’ll go 50mph
- It weights about the same as a mountain bicycle
Talk about perfect for the short commute to work. And it doesn’t even look totally geeky.
The drawback? It "…presently can only be refueled at a BP station in the Essex town of Hornchurch…".
