BMW Testing Hydrogen Combustion 7-Series

BMW sources have said a production version of the 745h concept will be with us by 2008.

BMW unveiled the concept in 2004, at the time saying the car was four years away from production. Spy photographers in Germany have captured photos of an actual road-going prototype in testing. This photo even shows the hydrogen cylinder (or beer keg?)

The Bavarian giants are promising to offer motorists a driving experience very similar to that of petrol engines, without having to compromise performance.

Definately worth keeping an eye on.

    BMW to the rescue! Everything that’s wrong with the world today revolves around our use of fossil fuel in one form or another… Global warming, war, terror from the skies, terror from weapons of mass destruction, terror from poverty, terror from ones loved one father mother brother sister soldier, terror from highly paid political terror lobbist in Washington DC … God’s speed BMW!

    I totally agree. Well done BMW. Now I can drive my Hummer and not worry about running out of fossil fuel.

    I have been following Hydrogen for about 8 years in combustion engines. If the media is kept aware of the turning events on this it might force the governments to take action and invest in tomorrows future. BMW has made a gaint step forward and with this other companies may follow and bring us in the fulture.
