New hydrogen London black cabs

A fleet of London‘s black cabs powered by hydrogen is going to be on the road in time for the 2012 Olympics. A demonstration hydrogen fuel cell taxi was launched on Monday at City Hall.

 

The cabs can operate for a day without refuelling, and will use six specialist hydrogen filling stations which are planned for the capital. It will be a long time before other vehicles are able to use the emission-free technology, because of the cost of manufacture and making available hydrogen re-fuelling stations.
