According to YourAutoStuff.com, The BMW Hydrogen 7 — the first hydrogen-powered luxury sedan — joins an unprecedented cross-country journey featuring hydrogen-powered cars by the world’s leading automakers in the 2008 Hydrogen Road Tour.
From August 11-23, the hydrogen powered convoy will travel from Portland, Maine to Santa Monica, California with one goal: to call on congressional leaders to support the creation of a nationwide hydrogen fueling station infrastructure.
Here are a couple of things I learned after reading the article:
It is good for the environment. ANL conducted emission tests on BMW Hydrogen 7 mono-fuel vehicles in early March 2008 and found that not only were the emissions infinitesimally small but when running, the vehicle actually cleaned the air.
Exhaust emissions are clean enough to drink. Recent studies have also confirmed the water emitted by the Hydrogen 7 is, in fact, safe to drink.
Hydrogen powered vehicles could help to eliminate our dependence on foreign oil.
