Indian firms to make hydrogen cars

We’re going to see a lot more hydrogen cars hitting the market from now on.

Interesting to see India is so quick off the mark – wonder when/if the UK has anything planned?

India’s Economic Times has this:

Bajaj Auto, Ashok Leyland, Tata Motors, Mahindra & Mahindra and Eicher Motors have come together to develop hydrogen-blended compressed natural gas (HCNG)-run vehicles.

To tackle the problem of rising pollution, the pilot project will use CNG with different blends of hydrogen ranging from 12% to 30% in different vehicles. These vehicles – small three-wheelers, trucks and passenger buses – will be supplied by these manufacturers. Bajaj Auto’s three-wheeler will be the first one to be tested later this month while Tata Motors’ LCV will run on the new fuel in December.
