Hydrogen Road Tour-BMW Zentrum-Pic's

The Hydrogen Road Tour stopped at the SC BMW Plant for a couple of hours on Saturday (yesterday).The Hydrogen 7 was there along w/ hydrogen powered.....MB A Class,Hyundai Tucson,Kia Sportage,Toyota Highlander,VW Touran,and Nissan X-Trail.Shot alot of pic's! Might need to do this in a couple of threads.Hydrogen seems to be a way to keep the internal combustion engine and break away from the Middle East oil.The Hydrogen 7 was running on hydrogen only.The range on all hydrogen power is 125+/- miles.The liquid hydrogen is stored at -418F degree's.You can see the vapor floating around.The guy in the green shirt and w/ the black mustache, fueling the Hydrogen 7, is Josef Kerscher,the President of the SC BMW Plant. Thanks! PalBay

very nice!

just curios, where can you fill up if you get these cars and what unit of measurement are use for each dollar paid.

and how can EPA estimate fuel mileage that should be in the car sticker?

How much cheaper in terms of gasoline?

just curious to see if its really going to be a market reality.

Cool Pics!

I wish I could answer your questions! I did pick up a brochure that BMW printed about the Hydrogen 7.I'll read up and see if the brochure addresses any of your questions.Distribution ( A convenient place to fill up) is by far the biggest problem w/ hydrogen.California has few places as does some city/counties that use hydrogen for their service vehicles.You would think all these car companies that were on the Tour would be doing some serious back channel pushing for more places to fillup on hydrogen.Thanks!

Those are just cars to test the hydrogen technology, they are not meant to be future cars. Come on...

Do you think that 7er is going to be the same as a hydrogen 7er 10-15yrs from now?
