Ford unveils interchangeable plug-in hydrogen fuel cell hybrid vehicle

Ford Motor Company will unveil a hydrogen-fueled, battery-powered plug-in in the new Airstream concept vehicle. The system, installed in a Ford Edge prototype will be displayed at the Washington, D C, Auto Show on 23 January, 2007.

Ford Motor says it is committed exploring alternative powertrains.

The powertrain is said to offer fuel, engine and energy-conversion flexibility. Called HySeries Drive, the system is powered by a 336-volt lithium-ion battery pack at all times that gives it a range of 40km on a full electric power.

Once the battery pack is depleted by about 40 per cent, the hydrogen-powered fuel cell begins generating electricity to recharge the batteries, increasing range another 448km, for a total driving range of more than 480km.
