Hydrogen at the Speed of …90

As anticipated in a story on SolarAccess.com, the NECAR 5, a subcompact Mercedes-Benz A-Class car, completed its 3,262-mile trip from San Francisco to Washington on Tuesday. The vehicle chugged along on methanol converted to hydrogen and reached speeds of 90 mph, according to DaimlerChrysler engineers. The trip is good news for the development of future hydrogen vehicles even if the car was accompanied by two gas guzzling SUVs and a van carrying replacement parts and tools. The San Francisco Chronicle ran a good Associated Press story on the topic.
