What hydrogen Car? - Mazda RX-8 hydrogen RE
HyNor is building an initial hydrogen infrastructure, as part of a future permanent set-up, so that it will be possible to drive hydrogen-fuelled vehicles along the 580km route between Oslo and Stavanger.
As part of its commitment to the project, Mazda has developed a dual-fuel RX-8 coupe that can run on both hydrogen and petrol.
Mazda admits that such an engine is not as efficient as a fuel cell, but because it shares so much with the conventional petrol engine, the development costs are much lower, and there are fewer issues with reliability.
